Why “E-Mail Best Practices for All Employees” Matters:

E-mails are an efficient, effective, and professional means of communicating with either a single person or a group of people.

Corporate e-mail traffic is increasing by nearly 50% a year according to some estimates.

Experts estimate that the average employee sends and/or receives more than 50 e-mails a day. For many users, that number is much higher. This adds up to a lot of time every workday devoted to writing and reading e-mail.

Poor management of e-mail can be costly to the employer—valuable time can be wasted searching for information; time spent reading and deleting nonessential messages can also be a time waster; other related activities cost 12 percent of corporate payrolls every year.

In a recent study, 56% of employees surveyed complained of mental fatigue from handling and receiving nonessential e-mails in the workplace.
