As a result, even small and home-based businesses are installing high-speed Internet access and networks that provide that access to every employee’s desktop.
With this advance in technology the Internet can lead to a loss in productivity. According to a 2001 study by the Online Publishers Association (OPA), the total at-work Internet audience reached 52.8 million people in the US , and approximately 40 percent of the total admitted to performing non-work- related activities during their usage. In fact, Harris Interactive reported that the average employee spends more than 8.3 hours per week on non-work-related activities. That’s a full day per week! Such abuse cost US corporations $63 Billion in lost productivity in 2001. With the number of employees using the Internet expected to reach almost a billion users by 2005, this problem is expected to increase dramatically.
