Lower productivity due to the popular pastime?
One of the many effects of the global economic crisis is the higher demand of productivity from employees, many of which are still used to taking breaks that are now not so welcome. Such unauthorized breaks often result in a play at popular online gambling sites, including online bingo, which is extremely popular among the UK punters. However, playing online bingo during working hours is highly detrimental for economy, according to the latest expert assessments.
Namely, a study has been conducted by an online bingo site, which showed that as much as 55% of those surveyed played online bingo while at work - most of them do so via their iphones, which proved to be mostly popular because they enable players to gamble online without having to use the company's computer system.
Another highly concerning info for employers is that a majority of the survey's respondents confirmed that instead of working, they spent about an hour every week playing games. When accumulated, such a waste of time means millions for big corporations which employ thousands of people. An estimate is that, if every worker in the UK does a similar thing, 57 million work hours are lost every year - an enormous waste of resources, and as a result, money as well, which could end up in serious problems for the country's economy.
Yet, there's another aspect to take into account before throwing all the blame on online bingo players - with easy accessibility of hundreds of websites and mobile applications that will tempt employees to neglect their job, it's no wonder some of them cannot resist. However, a great majority of workers is still performing up to
expectations at work, knowing that workplace allows no room for online bingo - a purely entertaining pastime.
