The best way to block employee access to websites

We are beginning to have more and more of a problem with “improper” use of the internet. Although we expect some personal use - periodic checking of personal email, for example. But sometimes there is less business use of the internet happening and less productivity that has been getting noticed. We have been told that putting a proxy in place can help with this. Will a firewall be able to do this instead? Would appreciate some suggestions on how to deal with this.
