Why Cat Videos Cost Your Business Cash


How many times have you found yourself scrolling your Facebook feed, starting a YouTube video, or snapping a quick photo for Instagram while ‘working’? All of us are guilty of it to one degree or another. There is no harm in the occasional mental break from the daily grind, it can even be healthy.

Yet, the cold hard fact of the matter is, every minute spend watching cat videos is time not spent on responding to clients quickly, processing invoices, or resolving business issues. That cat video is costing your business cash. This pain point is more directly felt when we begin to examine productivity loss in employees as their time is literally a direct expense the company incurs.

Business owners want, and often do, trust their employees to balance their use of the web for personal reasons and to get their work accomplished. Many managers hesitate to put restrictions in place on web use because they don’t want to be a hypocrite, or they don’t want to assume their employees are up to no good. If you have ten or more employees, the chances are good at least one of them is regularly doing something they should not be online on the company dime. This comes in many forms, from visiting risky websites that contain malware that could destroy the company IT systems to viewing pornographic material which creates an uncomfortable work environment and can even open up the company to increased liability. Employees can even go online to research and download software that lets them mask their activities, or even steal information from the company. All of these things are just a few clicks away, with no barrier or monitoring on the majority of small business systems to prevent it.

What does Web Protection & Filtering accomplish in a business?

  • Preserve employee productivity
  • Prevent congestion by reducing bandwidth usage for non business purposes
  • Reduce the risk of exposure to malicious software and scams on the business network
  • Reduce legal liability from employees accessing and downloading inappropriate or offensive content
  • Prevent possible lawsuits towards the business from employees sharing copyrighted materials, in the forms of illegal movies and music.

Yes. Every business should have a web usage policy, enforced by software or a monitoring service no matter how you slice it, for security or productivity or both. This can be as simple as blocking malicious content, which many popular antivirus software suites currently do if enabled or dialing in and filtering more types of content as well as monitoring the types of websites employees have access to and use on a day to day basis.
