Taming The Email Monster
According to internal communication expert and consultant David Grossman of The Grossman Group, and as recently reported on NBC Nightly News, workplace email is out of control.
- And, it's time to tame the email monster explains Grossman.
"You'd love to spend your day doing your job so that maybe, just maybe you could get home and enjoy uninterrupted time with your family or get out with friends," says Grossman. "Instead, you spend so much time every day managing your inbox that everything else in your life--real work, family, play--is practically an afterthought."
Grossman has written a new free ebook where he tackles the email beast--showing what some companies are doing to:
- rein in the email monster
- make better use of working hours
- cut back on the stress on employees caused by a 24/7 cycle of endless emails
Finally, in the ebook, Grossman talks about the CEO of French technology giant Atos, who plans to phase out internal emails by 2014. The moved is a result of internal research that revealed time spent on emails by employees lessened time needed to be spent on management.
