time spent on emailHow much time do you spend on email in a day?

The average “office worker,” according to a Mail Online article, spends about two and a half hours every day on email.  If you do the math, that translates to 81 days per year.  Mobile devices contribute to that figure as emails are checked and responded to outside of the office. Conversely, the article goes on to say that 14% or 6.4 hours per week, is spent communicating and collaborating internally.

How else could you be spending that time?

While emails are a necessary part of most every work environment, we can’t lose the human component of collaboration. If we make collaboration part of our every-day workflow, would that make us more connected with our peers? Would our work be more creative? Better efficient?

We recently launched a set of Connectivity Tools designed to make the starting a meeting faster than ever before, especially from the applications you use the most. ReadyTalk for Outlook integration lets you collaborate directly from your Outlook inbox--start, join and invite others to your meetings without opening another application.

Do you feel that you spend a lot of time on email? What tips and tricks help keep the collaboration alive in your business? Tell us what you think, by leaving a comment below.
