EN Purpose: The study aimed to identify the phenomenon of dependence on technology (Internet and social media) of employees and the impact of dependence on their work. Approach/Methodology/Project: As a research method, an analysis of the literature and own statistical research was used to identify the problem of employee dependence and the impact of this dependence, and the reasons why it happens. Findings: It was found that employees who use the Internet and social media, and games for 3 to 5 hours are aware of addiction and that this has an impact on the quality of work, with as much as 50% claiming that they do not neglect their work duties and blaming the excessive use of media for tedious work, aversion to work, lack of concentration, poor work organization and lack of clearly defined duties. Practical Implications: The research should raise concerns in employers and the need for some organizational changes. The research has shown the need for further exploration to estimate the losses incurred by employers and determine the impact on the economic efficiency and effectiveness of the entity. Originality/Value: The survey is original, has not been conducted in this form so far; it provides essential knowledge on the behavior of employees using electronic media and possible consequences for employers.
