Gadgets make us better workers, say 58% of Brits

New statistics reveal that 58 per cent of British workers believe that the wide array of electrical gadgets and gizmos filling their workplaces is making them more industrious.

The results compiled by Warwick Business School and released by npower showed that one of the reasons for this was that with 57 per cent of respondents claiming to log onto their emails outside of their working hours, a considerable 85 per cent felt that doing so made them more productive.

Interestingly, however, figures from the Office for National Statistics suggest that these 58 per cent of employees may be somewhat delusional. According to the organisation, productivity has risen by only two per cent per year since 1973, when none of these tablet and online technologies were available.

As Will Skillman from Warwick Business School said: "Certainly the rise of the mobile office means that workers can stay plugged in on the move and for longer periods of time, but whether this has resulted in a more productive workforce remains to be seen."
