An annual survey of workplace attitudes conducted by Kelly Services quizzed over 134,000 people worldwide, with 6,000 UK respondents, also found that 37% of IT workers were currently in a performance-related pay scheme.

An additional 34% said performance-related pay, with Generation Y, deemed to be workers between the ages of 18 and 29, would make them more productive.

Kelly Services interim general manager for UK and Ireland, Andrew Cook, said that contrary to mainstream thought "many employees are actually quite comfortable about some element of compensatio being tied to their individual or group performance".

He added: "This indicates that many are confident in their ability to perform their jobs well and believe they can share in the rewards of improved workplace productivity."
