A recent survey of business executives showed that of 169 decision makers who responded to a survey by the Business Research Group, over fifty percent have either already implemented an internal web site or are in the process of developing such a site (Engler, 1996). These results were similar to those reported in Information Week, which showed that 49% of those firms responding to the survey already had direct Internet access for their employees. According to this same survey, this figure is expected to increase to 67% of these same firms by the spring of 1997 with another 10% of the firms testing the viability of such a connectivity policy (Yankelovich, 1996).
