Hootsuite CEO on ending e-mail overload
By HPAC MagazineHPAC General Human Resources Management Websites
HootSuite CEO Ryan Holmes on the LinkedIn Influencer blog says:
It’s a fact. Email is making us slower, less productive and even dumber. The average employee now checks email 36 times an hour, spending a full 13 hours a week reading, deleting, sending and sorting emails. Each time we’re distracted with an email, it takes an average of 16 minutes (yes, 16 minutes) to refocus on the task at hand. But the news gets worse: Workers who check email frequently suffer a 10-point drop in IQ, the equivalent of missing an entire night’s sleep.
