Email shouldn’t be a source of stress
StatusToday can help you manage, action and reduce cold email noise affecting your organization.
The growing number of emails in an employee’s inbox is considered a major cause of stress in the workplace.
Email overload goes beyond simply the number of emails an employee sends or receives. As email today has morphed into an all-encompassing task-center, employees’ perception of overload is now directly linked to the anxiety felt when called to handle messages. On top of this, norms of email responsiveness have expanded to outside office hours and weekends. As such, employees increasingly experience email overload.
Anxiety, stress, and distraction…
Not only does resulting anxiety and stress from email overload inhibit overall employee wellness, the amount of time spent on emails reduces individual productivity and often turns into a workplace distraction rather than a fundamental collaboration tool.
Once an employee’s focus turns to their inbox, it leaves them with less time to complete individual work tasks leading to more extended working hours and more stress inside and outside the office.
The anxiety felt when called to action on emails at all hours of the day, the conformation with norms of responsiveness, and the overall amount of time spent handling emails all contribute to the harmful impact of email overload on overall employee wellness. In turn, this is costly to the employer regarding aggregate absenteeism.
