Nearly half of all employees are expected to do some of their holiday shopping online. That could mean a loss of a lot of money for businesses.
Apparently not all of them are upset by that fact.
According to a study more and more companies are giving their employees more freedom when it comes to shopping during work hours.
Diane Lewis is the president of Action Facilities Management in Monongalia County, and has about 275 employees.
Lewis said she gives her employees 30 minutes to look for deals and then it's back to work.
She said she loves to see the deals herself, and she said since she's put in that police she's actually seen productivity increase.
"Now they're now closing pages, or closing windows," Lewis said. "Everybody is actually doing their job now. That makes me feel better and it makes me feel better for the customer."
Lewis said her employees usually also do a good job balancing themselves. She said if they notice there's a problem they're good at bringing it to her attention.
