Abstract

Scholarly interest in cyber loafing, defined as using the Internet during working hours for non-work related purposes, has been gaining momentum over the years. In this paper, we seek to propose how the characteristics in a job may influence cyber loafing at work. Using job demands and resources theory to underpin our proposal, we suggest that job demands increase the tendency of employees to engage in cyber loafing due to the stress experienced at work. On the other hand, job resources tend to enhance employees’ work engagement and hence reduce their likelihood to cyber loafing.
