Great British Bake Off’s Alice Fevronia on jurassic work

Post-pandemic research has revealed that a staggering one third (31%) of British companies are technologically behind the times. This comes as 71% of Brits consider looking for a new job because of their business’ outdated attitude to technology.

The research commissioned by Virgin Media O2 also found that 1 in 25 say their businesses are still on a dial-up internet connection.

Using instant coffee instead of having a coffee machine (21%), needing a physical holiday wallchart (12%), and still using business cards (13%) are all signifiers that a business is stuck in the past.

Social media is also boosting UK start-ups, the study found. With over a third (37%) of Brits believing that their business relies on social media to operate successfully.
