Facebook/Youtube – a Perfect Excuse

a study shows that the internet (used for fun) while @ the office makes us better employees! now really?

the Univ. of Melbourne reported that surfing during office hours increases productivity (amen to that!)

that employees are 9% more productive than those who do not surf while @ work (amen again!)

Brent Coker, the study author says that Workplace Internet Leisure Browsing (WILB), helps sharpen workers’ concentration (yeah sharp minds, i have that!)

“Short and unobtrusive breaks, such as a quick surf of the Internet, enables the mind to rest itself, leading to a higher total net concentration for a days’ work, and as a result, increased productivity,” Coker added. (i couldn’t agree more)

now, if i could only get my bosses read this post and approve our youtube and facebook access, i bet they’d get more out of me, hmmm i might be so productive i’d win employee of the year! haha
