If there are no data for Algeria, you can easily become familiar with the phenomenon does not spare European countries like France, Germany and Switzerland, for which data are available.

 An employee spends, on average, nearly two hours (actually 1:53) per day on the Internet, including 44% of the time (50 minutes) is "personal purposes", the remaining 66% thus within the "professional surfing" says the study entitled "Reality of Internet use in the office" in his version in 2015.

The study found that in a wired connection, is the professional use prevails (58%), while it is 38% wirelessly.

Fall in productivity

The Internet for personal use in the office is a source of "10.2% drop in average productivity per employee," says the study OLFEO. The calculation is based on 50 minutes per day per employee connected to the Internet for personal purposes. More than a year this connection time reduced the number of weeks of work at 41 instead of 46, if they were seen working hours per day (8 hours).

The decrease in productivity due to personal use of the Internet, has a cost. An estimated 337 euro per day, € 6656 a year of losses for the company, equivalent to 1.2 months of salary per person per year.

 Focusing on the use of the Internet in the office for time slots, the study shows that "early in the day," the trend is to an "average of 44%" for personal use "to make room for navigation then more professional." " between 11:00 ET 3:00, this is the time of day when the personal use of the Internet knows the biggest peak surf beyond the 44% usage of the Internet. From 07:00, the use of Internet is very professional, "adds the document.
Early in the morning (08: 00-10: 00), the main trends of the staff are surfing the news media, but also social networks (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn), the study said. At noon (11h to 15h), personal navigation is moving toward video, games and news. Late afternoon (18h to 20h), return to social networks. Online games, e-commerce sites, blogs and other forums are also part of the most visited categories.

Facebook head

Of the five countries (France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland), Facebook has passed the "Top 15 most visited sites." Youtube reaches the second position, except in Germany, where it is Wikipedia, which took second place. News sites (6/15) as Spiegel, Bild and Heise (IT information) are more popular in Germany. While in Belgium are the platforms of e-commerce (4/15), which are the most numerous. In France, "Yahoo News" topped the news websites ahead of Le Figaro and Le Monde.

In the "Top 10 of the most popular categories," the study shows that "News and Media" leads in three countries: Germany (24%), Luxembourg (18%) and Switzerland (20%). While in France and Belgium, this category comes second with 14% in both countries, behind the "blogs, forums, Wiki ...", with respectively 16% and 22%. Social networks occupy: France (12%), Germany (13%), Belgium (17%), Luxembourg (14%) and Switzerland (15%).

The security challenge

The study lists five issues of security of Internet browsing in the office staff. In addition to the loss of productivity that affects the company, safety is in second place because of the risks "more" posed by "malware attacks." The "illegal downloading, illegal content, defamation of an employee on the Internet" are not without consequences for the company, the report said.

The fall in internal bandwidth is also undermined by "consultation online video" reducing "network performance". "If 50% of employees to see a video, the other half of employees wishing, for example access to business applications, you will see its slow access." L '"e-reputation" is today one of the concerns of a network manager of a company or an administration.

OLFEO proposes a "solution to combat this scourge." This is the "paper IT or Internet Policy, by country, (that) allows you to set the rules of the game and can prohibit employees to publish information about the company and use their email address professional network, both during their hours working in their private sphere, "the study suggests.INTERNET AU BUREAU
