You Spend More Than 5 Hours Each Week Checking Your Email
In a survey of more than 1,000 “white-collar workers” across the U.S., people reported checking their email an average of 2.5 hours each weekday. The average person checks work email more than three hours each day, according to Adobe, which conducted the survey. From a report: According to the report, email is most popular among people between the ages of 25 and 34 — today’s Millennial generation, roughly. That group spends an average of 6.4 hours in their Inboxes each day, compared to 5.8 hours for those between the ages of 18 and 24. For the first time in the three years Adobe has conducted the survey, email isn’t the sole most desirable way to communicate with colleagues. Instead, face-to-face conversations are tied with it as the top communication method at work. When it’s time for tough conversations, though — like quitting a job — face-to-face conversations have lost some ground. Just 52% of those between the ages of 25 and 34 say they would use a face-to-face conversation to quit a job. That number jumps to 77% among those over the age of 35.
