Online shopping set to peak today (December 10th), ISACA says

Online shopping set to peak today (December 10th), ISACA says

Employees will be frantically doing their online shopping today (December 10th) in what could be one of the busiest days of ecommerce before Christmas.

That is according to ISACA, a leading provider of information on IT, which said that poor weather conditions of late will only add to the number of people heading online to do their festive shopping.

ISACA's 2010 Shopping on the Job report found that 18 per cent of firms worried about productivity losses thought they could lose between £400 and £3,000 per employee because of internet shopping during work time.

Peter Wood, a member of ISACA's security advisory group, said that freezing conditions on the high street could push back the peak of internet shopping.

"All the signs are that this coming Friday - the 10th of December - is likely to be among the busiest days for pre-Christmas online shopping, and the bad news is that, as it's a working day, business productivity could take a severe hit," he said.

IMRG predicted at the start of the month that ecommerce spending would peak last Monday (December 6th) and that £6.4 billion will be spent online in the UK in December alone.
