Wasting Time at Work 2012

Our Survey Shows How Much Time Employees Waste at Work & How They Do It

Blame It on the Internet

As you can probably imagine in this era of constant connectivity, the Internet is forever at our disposal via laptops, smartphones and tablets. Ideally, that's fantastic news for people who want to take their work with them wherever they go. But the flip side is the constant temptation to slack off.

Of the people we surveyed, 64 percent said they visit non-work related websites every day during work hours. However, that number is down nearly 10 percent from the last time we conducted this survey in 2008. 

With so many jobs lost in the last four years, it's likely employees have less time to waste because they're spending more time on their added job responsibilities.
