Your Business is losing hours to spam every year, probably 100’s of hours of wasted productivity.
Having to clear the spam from your inbox is a productivity killer.
A recent report found that each one of your employees could be losing up to 80 hours each year, thanks to filtering and deleting spam emails.
That’s a LOT of lost productivity.
How Much Time!
The report stated that between 45% and 95% of emails were spam. Every day somewhere between nearly half and all email are spam. More concerning is that this also includes malicious emails.
If one of your employees gets 30 external emails a day, they’d get around 30 spam emails each week. That would work out to around 5 hours each year wasted on sorting through and deleting them.
For an employee who gets up to 60 emails a day, it would be around 11 hours a year wasted.
And for someone who gets more than 100 emails each day, you’re looking at around 80 hours of lost productivity.
Now add that up for each one of your team and you could be looking at a big number.
Not only that, but since a proportion of these emails will be phishing attempts (that’s where the sender wants you to take an action that will secretly give them access to sensitive data), it’s also a big risk to your data security too.
What can be done
Of course, there are a few things you can do to cut down the time spent on dealing with spam emails. The first is to make use of the spam and junk email filters available from your email service.
You may also consider bringing in dedicated anti-spam and anti-phishing tools.
Finally, you can make your people aware of the risks of spam, how to spot spam emails, and the best way to deal with it to save time and minimise the risk of malware or a data breach.
