Many employees are spending valuable time during the working day looking for another job. According to recent research, the prime times for job hunting are between 10.00am and 3.30pm
A 12-month survey carried out by Jobpilot across the UK, Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Sweden, Hungary and The Netherlands found that employees are using company time and resources in their pursuits.
As the working day draws to an end the number of employees browsing job websites drops.
The research also reveals that the French are the early birds, with a high number of employees searching between the hours of 5.00am and 7.00am.
Workers seem reluctant to encroach on their free time, with Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays being the least popular day to go job hunting. Tuesday is the most popular day, says the report, followed by Wednesday, Monday and Thursday.
