Cyberslacking

What does cyberslacking mean?

Using an employer's Internet for personal activities while working

Cyberslacking is when a person surfs the Internet during company time or uses his work email for personal reasons. It typically begins when taking a brief break from work but often extends into a longer period of scrollaxing.

Cyberslacking is believed to be one of the biggest wastes of a company's money because the productivity of the cyberslacker dips sharply. Some companies implement measures to prevent or reduce cyberslacking, such as the blocking of popular websites like Facebook or Twitter.
