Do you feel that Emails have started to annoy your employees? Well they actually can be instruments of distraction disguised as tools of productivity. “Technology is an addiction, if you cannot switch your Blackberry off, there is some serious problem” says Gayle Porter, famous management guru. It costs one important aspect of employee productivity that is ‘concentration’ that leads to around 2.1 hours of lost productivity every day. Surprised?
Time is Money. Any doubt? Computer chip giant Intel analyzed that e-mail overload can cost almost $1 billion for low employee productivity.
Rescue Time, a time management developer firm describes that the intrusions are same. Typically an employee checks email 50 times and uses instant messaging 77 times.
After effects can include anything from side tracking workers from their jobs, undermine their attention spans, increases stress, annoyance and decrease job satisfaction and creativity.
