Face It, Employees Are Doing Their Holiday Shopping On Office Time
While it’s easy to go shopping crazy on Black Friday since most of us aren’t working, scoring deals on Cyber Monday (November 28th) isn’t as easy since many of us will be back at our desks. But a lot of people do take advantage of Cyber Monday deals, which can mean only one thing – they’re doing their shopping at the office.
A new survey by Robert Half finds that 49% of employees will do their Cyber Monday shopping at work, and they take great steps to hide it. In fact, 65% of employees say they’ve had to minimize their computer screen in order to keep their manager from catching them in the act.
Overall, 64% of workers say they’ve searched for deals during their lunch break, while 43% have done their shopping when they got bored on the job, and another 35% got sidetracked by shopping while searching online for something else.
And while folks probably shouldn’t use their office computer for personal use, many do just that, with 39% saying they use their office computer or device to shop online, with 17% using their personal mobile device, ad 24% using both.
