A lot of folks have been working from home for the past almost two years, and there’s no doubt many people love it. One reason folks may enjoy working from their couch, is that bosses have a hard time keeping an eye on them, which is why it seems plenty of people are doing more than just work during work hours.
A new UK polls, which could easily translate here, finds:
- Folks who work remotely are using their office computers for more than just work.
- The most common non-work activities going on during work hours are browsing social media (17%), and messaging friends (15%).
- And while that sounds innocent enough, about 5% admit to actually watching porn on their work computers.
- That’s particularly true for more men than women (5.3% vs. 3.7%).
