Website Blocking Reduces Employee Productivity

June 21st, 2008

Corporate India: Beware. Blocking access to social networking sites, personal e-mails, banks etc is reducing employee productivity and satisfaction levels according to a study by CNN.

Website blocking is rampant in corporate India, especially in top Indian IT companies. What employers are failing to understand is a little bit of online surfing / chatting / Orkut scrapping will help employees relax their mind and focus on work better. It can also happen that they are running late on their bill payments, so enabling employees to do online will keep them tension free at work.

Maybe its time to form Employee Unions in all Indian companies because employers are increasingly exploiting innocent employees. Also the union will come handy to avoid a situation like Ranbaxy Labs, where promoters mercilessly dumped their holdings to Daiichi without even taking Senior Employees and Management into confidence.

    I do agree with the analysis of the Survey. Activating Online banking will save a lot of time of employee which may indirectly be utilized in work. Blocking websites will promote employee to fin alternative.

    If employee is misusing the flexibility given by the company, (s)he may be warned and then be fired on sequential warnings.
