Workers more productive if allowed to use the internet for leisure:
Dr Brent Coker, from the Department of Management and Marketing, says that workers who engage in ‘Workplace Internet Leisure Browsing’ (WILB) are more productive than those who don’t.
“People who do surf the Internet for fun at work - within a reasonable limit of less than 20% of their total time in the office - are more productive by about 9% than those who don’t,” he says.
Brent Coker? Isn’t that a poem by TS Eliot?
Stolen, as so many times, from andrewducker who comments 'people who are productive also have the kind of mind that needs occupying from time to time' Good one Andy!
