It isn’t always easy finding time to do all your holiday shopping, but it seems a lot of folks have found a solution - shopping at work.

According to a new Robert Half poll, two thirds of employees admit they are “workshoppers,” meaning they shop online at work using their office devices. And it sounds like it’s far from a one-time thing, with 36% saying they shop at work a few times a week, and another 35% doing it at least once a week.

Of course, they may not want to let their employers know that. While 76% of employers do say their company allows such work shopping, 53% of bosses say they would prefer that they didn’t shop during business hours or on company devices. The main reasons they don’t want them shopping include security risks (59%), and loss of productivity (35%).

As for who is doing the most shopping at work. The poll finds workers in Los Angeles are the most guilty, with 56% admitting to doing so, followed by folks in Nashville, Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City (47%).
