UK workers are more likely to be looking out of the window than wasting time on the internet, according to a recent survey.
Despite the best efforts of some software vendors to convince bosses that they need to invest in internet monitoring, time wasting on the web trails in a poor sixth in the productivity-killing stakes.
More than half of the respondents in a BT survey found making tea to be the best way to avoid work, while a similar number favoured gossiping their time away.
But despite the slew of monitoring products available for bosses to track their employees' internet and email usage, as few as one in 10 cited this as their favourite time-filler.
It ranks lower than tidying the desk, reading the newspaper and even gazing out of the window. Instead of clamping down on internet use, perhaps worried bosses should just buy some blinds.
