A New Study Says Many Work Emails are Useless

New research finds that most of the work emails you send and receive are unnecessary or inefficient.

To find this, researchers tracked the email habits of seven company executives, and determined that 80-percent of the messages they sent were wasteful. Researchers say that many of the email messages the executives sent would’ve been better communicated via phone call or face-to-face conversation, and that when the executives began emailing less, employees did the same and overall the company gained back thousands of employee hours. Researchers explain email prevents deep focus by pulling your attention away from the task at hand which can lead to more mistakes and wasted time.
