Employees are holiday shopping at work
Following last year’s record low rate in the post-recession era, employees are once again boosting their online shopping game, hunting for deals and checking out their carts from their cubicles, according to CareerBuilder’s annual Cyber Monday survey. Half of workers (50 percent) say they’ll be spending at least some work time holiday shopping, up 3 percent from last year. Of this group, 42 percent will spend an hour or more doing so. Employers aren’t turning a blind eye to this this holiday season. Twelve percent of employers say they’ve fired someone for holiday shopping on the Internet while at work (compared to 8 percent last year), and 56 percent say their organization blocks employees from accessing certain websites from work — up 3 percent from last year.
