Email Management

The average professional spends 28% of the workday reading and answering email, according to a McKinsey analysis. For the average full-time worker in America, that amounts to a staggering 2.6 hours spent and 120 messages received per day.

When it comes to email management, most professionals have resorted to one of two extreme coping mechanisms as a last-ditch attempt to survive the unending onslaught: at one end, there are the inbox-zero devotees who compulsively keep their inboxes clear, and, at the other, there are those who have essentially given up. Emails enter their inbox and remain.

However, the research shows how to eliminate half of this time with a comprehensive email management system. These resources cover everything from the optimal email folder system to when to check your email to how those who receive high volumes of emails can automate email processing.
