RedNova News: Personal Web Surfing Can Benefit Workers

RedNova News: Personal Web Surfing Can Benefit Workers: "Associated Press -- A new book argues that, contrary to employers' beliefs, letting workers surf on the Web can yield some beneficial side effects.

'Personal Web usage in the workplace has a negative perception, especially among administrators who often see it as inefficient and creating a decrease in work productivity,' said Claire Simmers, an associate professor of management at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia and co-author of a human resources guide to worker Web use.

According to research, doing personal Web surfing while on the job can lead to better time management, stress reduction, improvement of skill sets and helping to achieve a balance between work and personal life."

That's what I like to see.
