With the explosion of interest in the Internet, deploying desktop Internet access for corporations is becoming common place. Corporate managers are dealing with issues of blocking objectionable material and limiting the viewing of leisure sites that can impede employee productivity. The concerns are two‐fold: corporations need to block and monitor any elements deemed unfit for employees on the Internet, which can include references to issues such as sex, violence, nudity, racism and pornography, just to mention a few; curb the amount of time employees spend on the Web surfing sports and personal leisure sites when they should be working. Useful guidelines do exist for managers looking to evaluate employee productivity in the Internet‐based world. It largely consists of taking a systematic approach to the exploration of broad‐gauged questions about Internet access issues, blocking and monitoring, and the nature of your corporate culture or policies.
