Study: 98% Are Tethered to Email

According to a new study of more than 500 executives, people check email often. When not at work, 98% of people check email. Authors of the study conclude, "Work is not a place anymore. It's a state of mind." 

Discussion Starters: 

  • Are you in the majority of people who check email every 1 or 2 hours? 
  • Organizations benefit from people checking email often and when on vacation, and the consequences to people personally may be obvious, but what are the potential negative consequences to organizations?
