How can I avoid wasting time when their is no work to be done. How should I drum up work as a Data Entry Clerk?

Dear Nothing to Do:
As a manager, I encourage each one of my employees to always look busy even when there isn’t work to do at that moment. Nothing is worse at the corporate level to see an employee sitting at their desk and reading a magazine, surfing the web, chatting with a co-worker or on their smartphone when they should clearly be working. It does get noticed by management from all levels. It gets noticed from the direct manager wondering why the employee clearly is not trying to find work and it gets noticed from the hire ups that maybe it’s time to downsize the employee who doesn’t have enough work.
