Make sure your boss is not reading over your shoulder because today we spill the not-so-flattering beans on employees’ work habits during working hours.

With the help of our trusty old friends at YouGov, we were working off a hunch (not from personal experience, of course dear boss) about employee’s online activities while at work. So what did we find?

Now, whether this is a good or bad thing—is a completely different question.

We recall a particular study titled “Impact of Cyberloafing on Psychological Engagement” by Don J.Q. Chen and Vivien K.G Lim of the National University of Singapore which found that, “web browsing can actually refresh tired workers and enhance their productivity, compared to other activities such as making personal calls, texts or emails.”
