Surfing Instead of Working

Surfing Instead of Working

Now with all this in mind, what are companies doing about controlling their employees desire to surf instead of work? Many companies are developing an employee Internet usage policy. This is often called an Internet Acceptable Use Policy AUP and is inserted in the employee handbook or personnel policy. Most AUP policies limit Internet access to official business during business hours and establish guidelines to address violators. Some indicate that afterhours usage is acceptable. It doesnt completely eliminate the abuse, but does set forth policy that the company recognizes a potential problem, and sends a clear message to employees that nonbusiness usage is unacceptable during business hours.

In combination with the acceptable use policy, some companies are implementing monitoring tools. In addition, ProxyReport has a drilldown feature to see what site employees are visiting. The pricing is very reasonable for the small biz market! The Netrics ProxyReport is available for UNIX and Windows NT for $295, and can be purchased online through their site. Kansmens LittleBrother standard edition which includes monitoring and reporting starts at $295. The LittleBrotherPro with blocking functions starts at $495.

Once these systems are in place the company can reduce their legal and technological risk and promote more productivity and efficiency. Sample AUPs can be obtained online via a search engine and typing: Internet Acceptable Use Policy.
