Several years ago, I heard a speaker mention the number one use of the internet by employees at work was to look for another job.
Today, at least 24% of all employees play online games at work, according to both PC World and the New York Times.
The Times quotes the CEO of the Stress Institute as saying this is a way for employees to 're-charge', but you may feel differently.
Do you have a policy that says internet use is for business use only? Are you enforcing it?
The problem is, if one employee sees another playing games at work, that tacitly gives him/her permission to play as well. And suddenly, you have a productivity problem on your hands.
