A survey by the Next Generation Forum, a division within the Manufacturers Association of Israel revealed that over 55 percent of its young workers prefer to use the latest technological gadgets, such as palm pilots and electronic date books in place of secretaries. In line with the trend towards technology, 55% of young employees conduct their main banking activity through the Internet with only 14% visiting their local bank branch for the same transactions, the study found. Nevertheless, most of those employees said they depend on traditional newspapers rather than the Internet to get their economic news. And face-to-fact contact still beats technology when it comes to closing deals, with 78% of employees sealing business deals in the office, 12% in coffee shops and only 10% through on the Internet.
