Employee "cyber loafing" increases productivity

Researchers at the National University of Singapore say allowing employees to surf the Internet on company time can actually increase productivity. They say so-called "cyber loafing" perks up people after long periods of work.

In fact, they say surfing the web is better for productivity than talking or texting with friends or sending personal emails. And they add that smart bosses should stop snooping; excessive Internet monitoring and surveillance only makes employees do it more.
