It’s Cyber Monday! Are you at work and doing a little online shopping on the side?
Be careful, surveys show that some companies are bringing down the hammer on online shopping at work this year, Business News Daily reports.
Robert Half Technology finds that 60% of the 1,400 CIOs it surveyed this year are blocking all access to online shopping sites, up from 48% last year, BND report. More than 20% say they will permit access, but will monitor activity for excessive use.
In fact, companies expect employees to spend about half a day — four hours — shopping online this week.
