Full-time employees work approximately 260 working days or 2080 hours per year.  National averages show that unrestricted Internet access leads to a minimum of one hour per day of unproductive, company-paid, personal Internet time.  This could potentially add up to 260 hours per employee, per year, (almost 13% of an employee’s total time).  How many employees do you have?  What is their hourly equivalent pay rate? How much is this costing your company?

How can your business protect itself from this productivity drain?   The answer is to place filters on employee access to the Internet.  Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and many other social media sites are taking away from valuable time that should be spent on business activities.  Most of these sites are harmless and simply lead to a misuse of company resources, but some explicit sites may open your business up to liability issues.  Sexual harassment suits have been successfully litigated by employees who witnessed others perusing explicit images via the web and this is just one example of the problems that can be triggered by unlimited access.

Implementing an Internet content filtration system is a fairly simple solution.  Your company can choose to have this done in a number of different ways, depending on the set-up of your internal network.  Two of the main reasons for implementing content filtration are: employees must be productive during paid hours, and our society has become so comfortable with filing lawsuits that we must do everything we can to limit exposure to the potential of unnecessary litigation costs.
