Nearly Half of CIOs Plan to Restrict Cyber Holiday Shopping

With Cyber Monday a week away, employees may want to rethink where and when they do their online holiday shopping, in light of a new survey indicating that many employers frown on employees doing their cyber shopping during the work day.

Forty-eight percent of 1,400 chief information officers interviewed by Robert Half Technology said they intend to block access to online shopping sites on Cyber Monday, the Dallas Business Journal reported.

Another 34 percent said they will allow access, but will monitor employees for excessive use.

CIOs who allow shopping online expect their employees will spend three hours per week on that activity.
