Abstract
The rapid progress of the technology, as well as positive results for individuals, can create the ground for some problems from a managerial point of view. Employees' adaptation to technology and use of technological tools in business processes bring about many positive outcomes such as improving communication and interaction. However, the management action, which is perhaps the most difficult task of today, sometimes result in the misuse of the opportunities offered by technology and the undesirable consequences. The concept of cyberloafing means that employees use information and communication technologies for their own purposes rather than their business goals and that the time allocated to work is passed through technological opportunities for their personal purposes. Employees, aside from the business processes, follow their social media accounts in accordance with their personal goals, spend time with correspondence and engage in interactive content. Behaviors such as spending time on shopping websites, review discount campaigns, researching personal financial investment opportunities are considered within the scope of cyberloafing. When the literature is analyzed, it is possible to see many researches emphasizing that the cyberloafing tendency has a negative effect on the job satisfaction and productivity of the employees. The cyberloafing tendency of the employees is not easily monitored by the managers. In this respect, the concept of cyberloafing is a phenomenon that needs to be met with emphasis on the enterprises that have the objectives of efficiency and sustainability. The aim of the study is to measure the cyberloafing tendencies in businesses located in the Organized Industrial Zone of Silifke district and to determine their differences according to socio-demographic variables. In this quantitative type of research, the simple random sampling method is preferred and the data is obtained from 212 participants of 46 businesses by using face to face interview method. The participants of the study are the employees of the industrial businesses actively operating in Silifke Organized Industrial Zone. In the data collection form, cyberloafing scale developed by Lim (2002) was used and the obtained data were analyzed through SPSS program. According to the findings, there is a statistically meaningful difference between participants’ level of achievement, marital status, education level and business sector and cyberloafing behaviors.
