With holiday shopping season upon us, it's a good guess your employees aren't just working when they're at work — they're increasingly shopping in the office. A new study by ISACA reveals just how much.
The 2011 ISACA Shopping on the Job Survey found that nearly one-third (32 percent) of people who will shop online this holiday season will do so using either a mobile device provided by their employers, or their own device they also use for work purposes (sometimes called a BYOD, or "bring your own device"). That's 15 percent more than those who planned to shop with work devices last year. And we're not talking chump change: These shoppers admit they will spend an average of 18 hours shopping online with work devices.
