ABSTRACT
The article reports that British businesses stand to lose an estimated 28.7 million man hours over the festive season due to staff doing their online xmas shopping in work time. Research among 2,100 adults by YouGov, commissioned by software security company So Protect Me, revealed the estimated lost hours. This amount of lost hours is down to those employees who admit to shopping online at work (45%) spending an average of just 22 minutes a week making Internet purchases. So Protect Me commissioned the research into the online shopping habits of employees prior to the launch of its Payment Blocker tool, which can be used to enforce company policies on internet usage in small and large companies.
