iPods, mobiles and gadgets are top office status symbols

Share

Office Angels have commissioned a survey and coined an acronym (oh how we love acronyms).

Firstly, we discover that two-thirds of office workers think that the ultimate status symbol is the iPod, closely followed by mobile phones (presumably the latest models), BlackBerrys, and memory sticks.

Ready for the acronym?

Yes, they’re GOSSIPS. Gadget Obsessed Status Symbol Infatuated Professionals.

Wow, how long did it take to make that up?

A whopping 45% of the 1,500 people surveyed said that office workers should have TWO mobile phones – one for personal and one for work. Who are these 675 phone-obsessed freaks? 🙂

On a non-tech note (just for fun, like) office workers spend around £10 a week on coffee (should’ve gone to Benjys).

Are you a GOSSIP?
