If you are struggling to be productive at work, then the solution could be simpler than you think.
According to research conducted by Carleton University, people now spend one-third of their time at the office reading and answering emails. “And 30 per cent of that time, the emails are neither urgent nor important.”
With the rise of smartphones, there is now a culture of replying to work emails outside of working hours – be it on the train as part of the commute, or in some extreme cases midway through a family dinner.
Clients, colleagues, and newsletters can all contribute to this problem, but fortunately there are a number of ways to tidy up your inbox and increase your personal productivity by focusing on what is most important.
So, what can you do to lead a stress-free email life whilst at work? Take a look at our top tips to stop your emails from managing you.
