Ever get caught shopping on-line at work?
It’s something most of us want to keep a secret but almost everyone does it… shopping on-line while we're at work. It’s not just Cyber Monday. According to a new survey by finder.com during the holiday season the average worker will spend 102 minutes a day online shopping while on the clock. That's almost two hours. Before all the managers out there get angry about this, listen up: researchers at Michigan State found workers taking breaks improves productivity, improves job satisfaction, increases creativity, and restores their focus on long-term goals. Of course, the key is balance. A quick break to do some shopping is one thing…but two hours a day? Maybe not a good idea.
