Research carried out by DealJungle found that 18 per cent of employees could not name their company's URL when questioned, while 47 per cent were unsure as to whether it ended in .co.uk or .com.
That is despite 99 per cent of the employees surveyed being aware that their employer had a website, with 98 per cent stating that they believed it was essential to the future of their business.
In addition, almost a quarter of those surveyed were unable to recall their company's office address, while nearly five per cent could not remember their desk telephone number.
A spokesman from DealJungle.com noted that almost every business has a website nowadays, with many firms trading solely online, so staff not knowing a company's web address is "astonishing".
"Whilst we might laugh at some workers being unable to name their company's website there are more serious business implications such as making it more difficult to direct new leads to the correct place when questioned," he added.
