Email – Friend Or Foe? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ads by Google

One of the first things I do in the morning, when I sit down at my desk, is check my email.  And my job involves so much email that I can pretty much guarantee that I will spend at least the first hour of my working day getting through all of the new stuff and following up on older emails.  It is a tedious part of the job, but unfortunately it’s also a fact of life.  Every office-based job these days involves sending and receiving email, and this trend is only going to rise instead of go down.

Which is why I immediately identified with today’s infographic. Apparently most people get stressed once they get at least 50 emails, so the fact that I regularly hit this minimum every day means that must be why I am squeezing stress balls and wearing a “I Am Grumpy” T-shirt.

Let us know in the comments what you think of the infographic. Are you held hostage to email or, like Chuck Norris, do you hold email hostage?  How many emails do you typically send / receive per day?  And are you one of the 15% who check emails at a funeral?  That’s a new one on me.
