According to the Washington Post, the National Technology Readiness Survey reveals that while most workers admitted using company email and web connections for personal activities, those who had computer connections at home used them heavily for work.
The survey said that workers with internet access both at home and in the office logged on from home to do job-related tasks an average 5.9 hours a week and spent 3.7 hours a week at work on personal matters.
According to Charles Colby a co-author of a study based on the survey, IT allows users to shift work around in terms of time and space, working at home to compensate for personal surfing at home and vice versa.
Work related activities from home included checking email, conducting research and participating in online training courses.
