Undergraduate Students' Perceptions of Cyberloafing
Cyberloafing is the use of a company’s internet for personal reasons during a time when an employee is expected to be working. This study examined prevalence and seriousness of cyberloafing and student perceptions of employees’ cyberloafing habits through a survey of 253 university students. Results indicated that the most serious cyberloafing activities are the least prevalent. Students also reported a much higher perception of employee cyberloafing than they thought would be acceptable in the workplace. The implications of these results are discussed further.
