No Escape From Company Email as Work/Life Divide Disappears

July 31, 2014



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computer Weekly News -- GFI Software™ announced the findings of its second independent study into email user habits, which revealed a stark increase in the way that work email is encroaching into the personal lives and downtime of staff. Of those surveyed, some 44.8 percent admit to checking work email at least once a day in their personal time, while 40.4 percent admit checking multiple times a day or in real-time through pre-work mornings, evenings, weekends and days off.

Building on the inaugural 2013 study, this year's research into how employees interact with email expanded its focus to look at the impact of mobility and BYOD on email consumption. The survey found that 13.6 percent of those surveyed now use a smartphone or tablet as their primary device for sending and receiving email, thus ensuring that staff are wired into work email 24 hours a day, seven days a week unless they turn the device off.

The blind, independent study was conducted for GFI Software by Opinion Matters, surveying 500 US workers from companies with up to 500 employees.
