I guess this infographic (sales pitch actually) makes a few points, but I doubt most of the actual numbers cited.
- The average employee checks their email 36 in an hour?
But that's averages out to more than once every 2 minutes. Personally, I check mine about once every 10 minutes, and that assumes I'm not totally focussed on something. It could be once every 1/2 hour or hour.
- 16 minutes spent refocusing after handling incoming email?
If someone checks their email once every 2 minutes (see above), then this estimate of time to recover is pointless.
- 39% slept during a meeting?
Really? I'm surprised the employment rate for IT professionals to so high, because some managers would consider firing someone who slept through staff meetings.
- 91% daydreamed during meetings and 96% missed meetings.
OK, fair enough. Been there done that.
