The purpose of this study was to investigate the effective factors on web browsing (Cyberloafing) of human resources in sport organizations. The research method was descriptive-correlational and based on structural equations and also the data were collected by questionnaire. The statistical population of the study consisted of all employees of the Ministry of Sport and Youth, among whom, 237 were randomly selected as sample and finally 225 (93.74%) questionnaires were analyzed. A 14-question questionnaire was used to collect the data. Finally, the collected data were analyzed in two parts: descriptive and inferential statistics using SPSS and LISREL software. The results showed that the predictive power of this model based on the sum of variance of the three factors was 61.52%. Also, there is a significant priority among the cyberloafing components, according to which the attitude of employees is in the first priority, descriptive norms in the second priority and perceived barriers in the third priority. Considering the way employees use the internet and web browsing, the need for more in-depth research and attention to these types of HR behaviors become more apparent.
