From January 24-28, 2011, we are challenging businesses and organizations throughout the world to take control of their email and regain lost time and profits. Plan now to have your work group participate in a week of focus on email productivity. It is not just about clean inboxes, it is about collective best practices.
Over the past decade, email usage has surged to staggering figures. Now, it is estimated that 247 billion emails are sent each day. Put another way, email users worldwide produce messages greater in size than over 16,000 copies of the complete works of Shakespeare each second! The 2008 AOL Email Addiction Survey revealed that 62% of at-work email users check their work email over an average weekend and more than 50% of Americans check their work email while on vacation. These shocking statistics go on, and it’s clear that in the new decade, email users must take control their email before it controls them.
Email is a very effective communication tool upon which businesses rely heavily. However, we have developed a dependency on email that saps productivity. Many people can’t keep up with their inboxes and simply declare email bankruptcy.
This special week is listed in the 2011 Chases Calendar of Events - why not put it on your calendar?
“Clean Out Your Inbox Week” is a focused attempt to get businesses and organizations to work together to not only clean out their inboxes, but to take control of the e-mail Tiger that has invaded their business productivity.
