Your business is losing hundreds of hours to spam every year
I never liked Spam as a kid, I still don’t now. I especially dislike the variety that ends up in my inbox!
Inbuilt spam filters in email systems are so much better now than they used to be. You may even think that spam is just not a problem in your business.
Well…..Wait till you hear this. A new report has revealed everyone on your team could waste up to 80 hours a year, (yes I said 80!) scrolling through and deleting spam emails.
Between 45 and 85 per cent of all emails sent every day are spam. The figures are ridiculous!
Researchers calculated someone who only gets 30 external emails a day will probably waste about 5 hours a year sorting, reporting and deleting.
It’s the business owners and managers whose time is wasted the most. If you get more than a hundred external emails a day, you’ll spend 80 hours a year sorting and reporting them.
If you add those figures up across your team you will soon realise spam is a productivity killer.
There are settings in your email service to help protect you from more spam, and even external services that filter out those unwanted emails before they even get to your inbox.
Training can also help your team spot a spam message faster – and could stop them clicking on bad and malicious links, which could end up costing your business thousands of pounds.
