Black Friday Coworker Gifts

After Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales became an e-commerce tradition, many companies decided to restrict their employees’ access to online shopping websites, in an attempt to reduce non-work related surfing. Things are starting to change however, as last year and this one many companies have decided to let their staff shop on line during working hours, according to this article. Apparently, employers understand that with longer working hours, Christmas shopping is becoming almost impossible for their employees, especially for families where both partners work.
