Investigation of cyberloafing and job satisfaction levels of technical personnel within horticultural services

Ş. Uysal
Cyberloafing is the use of information technologies like email and ınternet by employees during work hours for personal purposes unrelated to business. Job satisfaction relates to positive or negative attitudes, feelings and thoughts of employees about their work. Both concepts have a direct effect on productivity in working life. High cyberloafing and low job satisfaction can cause problems like slowdowns, idleness and poor profitability. The aim of this study was to determine cyberloafing and job satisfaction levels of 175 technical personnel who work in horticultural services. The level of cyberloafing among the technical personnel was low and they were generally satisfied with their job. Although there were no significant differences in the level of cyberloafing and job satisfaction by gender, age, marital status, length of employment and place of employment, level of education was significant. As the level of education increased, so too did the level of cyberloafing. High school graduates were more satisfied with their job than graduate and postgraduate personnel. As job satisfaction level increased, the level of cyberloafing decreased.
