Annotation An important aspect of managing human capital in the 21st century workplace is managing the interface between humans and information technology, particularly the World Wide Web. Personal web usage has created many desirable organizational outcomes such as reducing the cost of communication, restructuring how work is performed as well as undesirable outcomes; for instance, loss of intellectual property, sexual harassment lawsuits, productivity losses due to surfing usage, security threats, and network bandwidth overload by visiting web sites for travel, leisure, and sports, and news. Personal Web Usage in the Workplace: A Guide to Effective Human Resources Management examines topics that embrace a wide array of personal web usage issues such as antecedents of web usage, frameworks/models of web usage, web technologies for monitoring usage, and the impact of web usage among others.
