Hammer Wines Business Report

Findings Department Spending Most Time on the Internet Specializing is a prominent occurrence amongst the Hammer Wines employees. However, of all employees, the Receptionists spent the longest time on the Internet wrought the one-week trial (see figure 1. 0 below). This may or may not be detrimental to Hammer Wines. Often, receptionists complete their work before their set time, meaning that if they’re browsing the Internet, still answering their phone and have completed required work, productivity will remain normal.
Studies also show productivity can increase when employees are less restricted with the Internet. This productivity can swing both ways. Negative productivity will be detrimental to Hammer Wines if the receptionist falls to multicast and therefore ineffectively completes required jobs. Internet Productivity and cyberspace From the array of websites (see figure 1. 1 below) it is difficult to tell if Specializing is twitter. Com, are huge social marketing websites, but can also used as a cost effective methods for company awareness and advertising.
These sites, however, can also be misused for personal use. Unless the employee is caught directly misusing these sites, it is hard to tell weather they are specializing or not. Faceable. Com is one example of Specializing. It is Hammer Wines’ second most visited Internet site, being used by Sales and Marketing, Reception, Manufacturing ND Distribution, Human Resources @ Training and IT Services. Sales and Marketing are the only employees likely to need the site for work purposes. For all other departments, employees must use Faceable. Mom for personal interests. Websites, including deals. Com are often used for both work and leisure. Reception, Human Resources @ Training, Manufacturing and Distribution, Sales and Marketing are all using this site. Assumptions cannot be made in relation to website use. Human Resources @ Training, Manufacturing and Distributing, and Sales and Marketing departments all have valid work-related grounds to use Deals. Mom, as it is great for promotional and comparative purposes. IT Services were found to be using Games. Com.

A total of 120 minutes was recorded throughout the week. This is a website purely dedicated to fun and games. This is the seventh most used website recorded. Although it is only a small fraction of the Internet usage, it is clear that productivity has decreased in the IT department, and through the given statistics, Specializing is present. Similarly, Tats. Com was used by the Sales and Marketing department, for up to 80 minutes throughout the recorded week. Tats. Com is a betting website and has nothing to do with the Sales ND Marketing of Hammer Wines.
However, productivity can be increased in the workplace, with employees having some freedom on the Internet. The use of social media and other personal websites can release stress and tension, thus not wholly being to the determent of Hammer Wines. Conclusion Hammer Wines has a vast array of websites being used by employees for both personal and work use. Specializing is present amongst all employees, with websites aimed at solicitation and productivity which both highly used. This, however, is hard to monitor as some sites – such as Faceable. Mom or Deals. Mom – are used in the companies Sales and Marketing department, but also used in recreational down time by most, if not all, other departments. It is important for Hammer Wines to implement a strategy to monitor all Internet usage. Receptionist work productivity remained high in correlation to time spent on internet, however, it was obvious the Specializing was overruling the IT department, as they spent 120 hours over the duration of the week on a games and entertainment website. Solution Internet Use Policy defining the terms of use for recreational Internet.
Any employee found misusing the Internet for purposes strictly other than work, may lead to disciplinary action, and their position at the company may be compromised. Blocking Sites Permanently blocking all Internet sites at Hammer Wines could result in a drop in productivity. Alternatively, a system that allows employees to have an allocated time throughout the day, to specifically visit sites such as Faceable. Com and Twitter. Com will allow staff members to have high productivity through compromise and strategy.
One example of strategic blocking is unblocking all websites for 15 minutes every 3 ours, enabling employees to use restricted sites that coincide with structured break times (lunch, snack and end-of-day). A second option for Hammer Wines is to block all websites, only allowing those who hold a position of authority (manager) or employee that has spoken to someone in a position of authority, to get a specific code to access a blocked website. This code then unblocks all sites and remains unblocked until the page is exited. This could be implemented when departments wish to use sites such as Faceable. Com for marketing or promotional purposes.
