'Talking to people at work' matters to 22% of employees

A new study looking into trends in the workplace has found that for a considerable 22 per cent of people, being able to talk to other people while at work is important to them in terms of how happy they are in their job.

The survey by Surbiton High School revealed several other trends concerning the current jobs market - for example, 14 per cent said they would be happier if they could take regular tea breaks, one in three liked the feeling of making a difference, while an easy commute was important to 35 per cent of workers.

For those who said they highly valued talking to other people, a job in which they would be sat behind a desk with no phone and working at a computer all hours of the day would be completely unsuitable.

However, sales jobs give people the opportunity to be out and about more, interacting with businesses and individual clients in order to promote and shift units of merchandise or services. There also tends to be considerable phone communication implicated in such roles.

Another career area in which good communication skills - and spending a lot of time talking to people - are part and parcel of any jobs would be that of telecommunications, including telesales.
