How People Goof Off When They Work From Home [INFOGRAPHIC]

Many workers are eager to work from home, and more employers are accommodating them. But what do these workers actually do all day? Are they as productive as the rest of us toiling away in our cubicles?

Many admitted that they watched TV or movies (43 percent), clean their house (35 percent), take a nap (26 percent) and have a drink (24 percent). Take a look at the infographic below for more details of what employees are up to when they work from home. And then let us know in the comments section what you're up to when you work from home.

Those individuals at "goof off" watching TV while working just are not going to make it plain and simple.
