When it comes to the workplace, we’ve all heard the term “Checked-out for the holidays” used to describe unengaged employees during November and December. How true is it that workers are less productive during the holiday season? What contributes to this stigma that makes it a suitable excuse?

In NETtime’s latest HR fact-finding survey, we will look at how online holiday shopping at work affects productivity. The survey, titled “Holiday Productivity: On The Clock Online Shopping” is dual focused to collect information from both business owners and employees regarding workplace policy, on the clock shopping and social networking, as well as the corporate blacklisting of websites from work computers.

In 2012, e-commerce sales in the United States totaled $225.5 billion. Internet Retailer forecasts nearly 15% growth in online shopping this year. With more people doing their shopping on the internet, daily deal newsletters taking a foothold in inboxes everywhere and Cyber Monday deals expected to be bigger and better than ever before, how will employees deal with the allure of on the clock shopping this holiday season?
