How to Stop Cyberloafing in Your Company Employees wasting time on the Internet during business hours has become such an epidemic problem in the modern workplace, experts have coined the phrase “cyberloafing” to describe it. Many managers have tried to find out how to block a website, thinking that blocked websites will discourages workers from wasting time online. Unfortunately, that’s not the answer to the problem. Although blocked websites may prevent children from visiting undesirable sites on home computers, it doesn’t make any sense to do it at a business. Many of the products designed to block sites end up blocking entire categories of websites, some of which your workers may need to do their jobs. And, thanks to the advent of smart phones and notepad computers, your employees will still have access to the Internet through their personal devices anyway. So there’s no need to waste your time finding out how to block a website. Instead, it’s best to take a multi-facetted approach to resolve the problem. If you’re worried that your employees are spending time doing personal tasks during the workday, there’s one sure way to stop it from happening now and in the future. Follow this multi-step approach to eliminate cyberloafing once and for all: 1. Utilize a software program that not only monitors which sites your employees are visiting during the course of a workday, but also measures their levels of productivity – in other words, how much time each person is spending doing productive, work-related tasks. 2. Establish a minimum working standard that all your employees are required to meet. Let everyone know what that minimum standard is, and monitor how each employee is doing. 3. Work one-on-one, if possible, with each staff member to determine what would most effectively motivate them to be more productive. It doesn’t have to be money. It could be a special reserved parking place for an employee who’s doing particularly well. You might consider establishing an “employee of the month” prize to recognize outstanding accomplishment, or maybe a monthly office party to acknowledge a few top-performing employees at once. 4. After you determine what would best motivate each employee, use those motivators to encourage each employee to improve his or her productivity levels. Remember that cyberloafing itself isn’t the problem – the real issue is a lack of motivation on the part of workers. Once you understand how to motivate your staff to do the best job possible, they won’t be interested in wasting time on the Internet or on anything else. Instead, they’ll be motivated to continue to increase their productivity and do the best job they possibly can. When it comes to cyberloafing, blocking websites isn’t the answer – but motivating your employees is!
