Increase Employee Productivity by Reducing Frivolous and Inappropriate Internet Activity

Workplace productivity is key to controlling labor costs and maximizing your company’s resources. Time is money. Every minute spent off task is negatively impacting your bottom line.

The Internet is no exception. Employees are wasting valuable company time by surfing inappropriate web sites (pornographic, shopping, sports, stock trading, auctions, etc…), sending/receiving personal email, talking to friends or family via online chat, downloading illegal software and music and more…

According to a recent Gallup poll, the average employee spends over 75 minutes per day using office computers for non-business related activity. That translates into an annual loss of $6250 per year, per employee1. An average mid-size company of 500 employees could be expected to lose $3.25 million in lost productivity due to Internet misuse.

Companies with remote or unsupervised employees are subject to a different form of employee abuse – white collar slacking. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that according to The Society for Human Resource Management, 59% of employees lie about the number of hours worked. Increasingly, employees use office technology to make it look like they are working when they are not. Email timers allow them to send a message even when they’re not there and instant messaging can be reconfigured to appear as if the employee is online.

Taking charge of how your employees use the Internet and eliminating excessive non-business activity will increase productivity and produce significant cost savings. Additionally, observing the ongoing performance of your employees will provide you with valuable information about how to improve their effectiveness on the job.
