Spay and Neuter the Electronic Rabbit
No matter what industry you're in, there's only one business many of us are really in these days—the clicking business—checking, sending, and receiving, and occasionally getting some work done. The average knowledge worker gets 133 emails a day and receives 77 instant messages. It's not sustainable. Email overload can cost up to $1 billion a year in lost productivity for large firms, according to a study at Intel. And it can increase stress and aggravation 105%.
Email is the electronic rabbit, multiplying at a pace that's not sustainable. It's time to spay and neuter.
The Cost of Email Overload
Unbounded email takes a big toll on productivity, personally and on company output. One Intel study found that the cost of lost productivity from email overload for large firms with more than 50,000 employees is $1 billion a year. That's billion with a B.
It doesn't have to be that way. With proven strategies developed by researchers and the best practices, you can get information overload under control.
