Consider these

Now consider this:

A recent salary.com survey revealed 64 percent of employees visit non-work related websites every day at work. Of that group, 39 percent spend one hour or less per week, 29 percent spend 2 hours per week, 21 percent waste five hours per week, and only 3 percent said they waste 10 hours or more doing unrelated activities. (My experience as a CEO tells me these figures are probably underestimated.) (Conner, 2012).

Lastly, consider this:

90% of businesses now use social media for business purposes (Proskauer, 2014)

What does this mean for you and your company?

Asking for Passwords

Blocking or Monitoring Use
