Les e-mails, c’est 5 heures de travail par jour pour les cadres de 2015

Les e-mails, c’est 5 heures de travail par jour pour les cadres de 2015 | Email overload | Scoop.it
"Je me lève... Je t'envoie un mail... Tu ne réponds pas... Comme d'habitude..." Telles pourraient être les paroles du tube mondial de Claude François s'il l'écrivait aujourd'hui. Une étude réalisée par Adobe révèle l'utilisation du mail par les cadres occidentaux. Ils y consacrent plus de cinq heures par jour, sur le lieu de travail, mais aussi en dehors. Et pour certains cela commence à peine l'oeil ouvert.
Jean-Christophe Isaac's insight:

On s'en doutait: l'email est devenu le principal outil de travail dans presque toutes les entreprises et métiers!

En croissance de 8% par an, les emails professionnels légitimes (hors spam) vont continuer à accaparer notre temps (pro et perso) alors même que tout le monde se bat pour mobiliser votre attention sur un sujet ou un autre.

Où faut-il en arriver pour que les entreprises (DRH, DSI, collaborateurs) réagissent? Le problème est-il seulement bien identifié en entreprise et affecté à un service/direction? Il n'y a pas de nom en français pour parler de ce sujet: on utilisera surement le vocable anglo-saxon 'Email Overload' encore quelque temps...

Faut-il interdire d’envoyer des e-mails professionnels le week-end ou après 20 heures ? | Email overload | Scoop.it

Jean-Christophe Isaac's insight:

Le débat porte sur la nécessité d'une loi pour corriger une dérive dans l'usage des outils de communications. Mais avant d'en ariver là, il existe des moyens concrets et pratiques pour faire évoluer ce problème.

Emo, plugin pour Outlook, permet de rappeler à l'utilisateur que l'envoi de mail en dehors des horaires de travail contribue à la pression collective du travail à toutes heures. Emo lui suggère alors de mettre son mail en brouillon et de l'envoyer plus tard pour respecter le droit à la déconnexion de ses collègues.

Suggestif dans un premier temps, Emo peut être configuré pour devenir contraignant si l'entreprise le décide.

The Science Behind Why Constantly Checking Your Email Is Making You Crazy | Email overload | Scoop.it
You know that email stresses you out, now here's the research-backed case for shutting off your inbox.

Via Charles Tiayon
Jean-Christophe Isaac's insight:

Constantly checking email gives us the illusion of multitasking; but after each interruption it takes us 64 seconds to come back to what we were doing.

Multitasking gives us the illusion of work done but it just adds stress and less work done indeed.

 

To feel better at work, just check your email less often!
