Practical Solutions to E-mail Overload: The Hidden Trillion Dollar Productivity Opportunity - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Practical Solutions to E-mail Overload: The Hidden Trillion Dollar Productivity Opportunity" report to their offering.

This report provides practical, proven strategies for team leaders and HR leaders to take action against e-mail overload and the resultant reduction in productivity that inbox overload causes.

The average Information Worker now receives more than 100 emails a day, and despite many technologies designed to tame e-mail, volume is increasing rather than decreasing. As such, the average Information Worker is spending more than a quarter of their time dealing with e-mail. Smartphones have made the situation worse - the darker side of the always available culture is longer working hours. Workers report being available and monitoring work more than 80 hours a week. Such behaviors create burnout in the individual and diminish productivity and efficiency for the company at large. Instead of being refreshed from time off, workers are worn-down from the lack of predictability and constant connectivity making it a struggle to contribute their best efforts to an organization.

How can you enable your team to make e-mail work for you, rather than the other way round? This report discusses three tangible strategies managers can take. First, managers can set group-wide policies that set norms and expectations around email behaviors so both senders and responders to email are clear about expectations. Second, managers can learn from best practice tips and tricks to control inbox overload, and to be a more responsible corporate citizen when it comes to email. Finally, there are an increasing number of software tools that can help filter and prioritize emails.
