A business contact sent me these statistics today. I was amazed—and not in a good way. I think you will likely respond similarly:
Annual productivity costs per employee:
- Spam: $1250
- Unnecessary emails: $1800
- Poorly written communications: $2100 – $4100
Source: You waste a lot of time at work
Of course, I was most interested to see that poorly written communications account for the greatest cost in productivity for employees. Click on the link and get the whole picture of what is (or isn’t) going on in the typical workplace. I hope yours is not typical.
