Cyber slackers waste an hour a day

Almost 40 per cent of workers spend an hour or more every day e-mailing their friends and relatives during working hours, according to research. And the survey of 4,500 employees conducted by Clearswift found that three-quarters of people believe their boss would be "unconcerned" if he or she knew about this time wasting. Only one in ten workers claims never to use the company e-mail system for personal purposes.
