I found this very interesting.
Should your employees get “Facebook breaks”?
The Ashdown Group reports the Portsmouth News used the Freedom of Information Act to discover that Portsmouth City Council staff spent a total of 572 hours on Facebook during August alone. Since then, the Portsmouth City Council banned staff from using the site while at work.
Some companies are taking a new approach to employees’ spending time on social networking sites during the workday — allowing them “Facebook breaks.”
Employment Law Advisory Services has suggested that many people are now essentially addicted to the websites like Facebook and, for this reason, should be given a set time to indulge their habit, in the same way smokers are. The company suggests one five-minute Facebook break in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Employees accessing a social site outside the alotted time would face disciplinary action.
