Are Excessive Emails Exacerbating Your Team’s App Overload?

Ever had one of those days where you feel like your inbox is staging a coup against your productivity?

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the deluge of digital tools and apps at your workplace? Trust me, you’re in good company.

Did you know? A recent analysis showed that a whopping 80% of our work communications are still done through good old email. Odd, isn’t it? Despite having a plethora of modern communication tools, we’re somehow clinging to email, like holding onto carrier pigeons in a world where telephones exist.

The same study highlighted a surprising time-drain – employees spend countless hours lost in a labyrinth of digital tools. Picture this: an employee, on the verge of submitting a key report, gets tangled in a web of Slack messages, Team notifications, and Google Docs. It’s like being stuck in an endless digital scavenger hunt – and it’s anything but entertaining.

Then there’s video conferencing. It seems like a productivity booster, right? Not exactly. Turns out, many employees find only 60% of these meetings truly useful. The rest? Just a series of unproductive gatherings.

Another frustration? The need to constantly repeat or explain things. About 74% of workers end up reiterating their points occasionally, with nearly a quarter doing it quite often. It’s almost like shouting into a void, don’t you think?

So, what’s the fix?

It might be time to step back and reassess your digital strategy. Instead of adding more tools to the pile, consider collaborating with a tech strategist. Think of them as the Marie Kondo for your digital workspace, helping to tidy up and bring back joy (and efficiency) to your team.
