A survey released last week by IT pro organisation ISACA suggests a lot of us would. Managers predict that 65% of their employees will spend three hours or more doing online shopping via work devices. While some of that might happen on a work-issued laptop out of hours, not everyone gets a smart phone or a laptop PC in their job.
I can imagine grabbing a one-time bargain from a deal of the day site if it seemed perfect, but outside that I don't think online shopping in the office would work, unless I did it in my lunch hour. How can you focus on picking the right gift if you're spending half your time worrying if the boss will freak out? Even though I'm self-employed, I'd rather set aside a specific Christmas shopping slot than do it in dribs and drabs.
But that's just me. What's your take on Christmas shopping in the office? Tell us in the comments.
