Our take: As technology allows more employees to work remotely, a new study looks at what employees are actually doing when they are "working from home".
A new survey by Citrix (CTXS), the Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) company that designs technology for employees to work remotely, shows that many people sneak in other activities while working from home.
Based on a survey of 1,013 American office workers, conducted in June by Wakefield Research, 43 percent watch TV or a movie and 20 percent play video games while officially working from home. Parents are more likely than those without children to partake in these two activities, which arent work-related.
