Krasnodar, 10 July – Yug Times. Many office executives kill their working time and virtual enemies in online games, while their employers chase on their subordinate idlers.

Computer games are a serious brake to business processes. If the corporate management slackens control, the employees can at once feel it. As a result, various first person shooters, strategies, arcades and browsers so deeply penetrate into the office life that they become a real obstacle to efficient work.

A couple of years ago, HeadHunter held a poll that remains topical now. According to its results, 33% of the respondents would allocate time to play computer games during their working hours - mainly, to relax during a tough working day. It was top managers and executives that were most active gamers. Another 39% said that although they did not play themselves, they often saw their colleagues switch on some virtual game on their PCs. The rest 28% said they neither played themselves not permitted their colleagues to do so.

Casual games aimed at a wide circle of users were called the most popular variant to get distracted from dull and monotonous work. These games have quite simple rules and do not need any specific assiduity. Their list included solitaires, card and logic games, and they were favoured by 30% of the interviewees. However, some 20% said they preferred games needing attention and deep involvement, like Counterstrike (one of the most popular action-games at offices). Fifty percent said they used both simple and sophisticated games.

Irina Veretennikova, HeadHunter South Director:

“Any employer may trace what their employees are doing during the working day - whether they are working on the tasks or playing computer games, hanging about in social networks, or maybe doing some freelance job. In our time of technological progress, they may clarify it and control them using different techniques.

“Some companies practise CCTV, others restrict access to Internet, still others forbid to use the corporate traffic for personal purposes under threat of punishment - from oral reprimand to monetary penalty.”
