The fax still remains the most popular method of communication (four out of five senior executives use it), while two out of five send and receive information via e-mail. And the idea of the "mobile office" appears to have taken hold: some 58% of those who used a PC/Desktop for business purposes did so at home, alongside 92% who did so at their offices.
The number of senior female executives in business life has changed since the last EBRS survey in 1993 - even if only from 6% to 8%. The average income for senior executives in the U.K. is $101,439, rising to $149,398 in Germany..
The survey was conducted among 369,000 senior executives in 17 European countries between January and July this year. It is managed by RSL -Research Services Ltd for EBRS, which is guaranteed by the FT and has 22 publication and eight ad agency sponsors including Wall Street Journal Europe, AMV BBDO and DMB&B Europe.
