While many bosses may be worrying (rightfully so) that Cyber Monday is slowing down employee productivity, their concerns should extend beyond today.
Online shoppers this holiday season were expected to do some significant buying on the Monday after Thanksgiving, which is generally one of the biggest shopping days of the year. About 121 million Americans are expected to shop online today, also known as Cyber Monday, according to a survey by Prosper Insights & Analytics.
While that’s a significant number, it’s a decline from the 126.9 million Cyber Monday shoppers in last year’s survey. A total of 4,281 consumers participated in the survey conducted over the weekend.
