Employees turning workplace technology to their advantage

It seems that workers are increasingly making "alternative" use of their employer's technology.

In Workers waste hours in web of receipts Natasha McLeod (The Scotsman) outlines how, "At a time when long hours gnaw relentlessly into the nation's spare time, employees are turning workplace technology to their advantage, by logging on there rather than at home."

The main advantage of getting domestic things done at work (mostly over the Internet or telephone) means that workers can make more of evenings and weekends.

The article comments on a survey and how, for example, two out of three workers (64 per cent) plan their holidays at work.
