Blocking Sports Sites

Sports is a favourite pastime for the majority of us, whether it’s baseball, football basketball or any other sport. However, browsing the Internet at work is an inevitable source of distraction for employees.

There are other hazards with sports sites as well, hazards that involve the workplace environment. Studies show that major sporting events, such as the World Cup, can cause divisions in the workplace between employees. It creates a division between employees who are interested in the sport, and those who are not. Sports can also have a different effect on the workplace; some experts believe that sports can boost morale and productivity in the workplace through employee satisfaction.
