A new survey by Good Technology found that by answering emails and taking calls from home...we are putting in an EXTRA 7 hours a week - That is a whole extra day of work!!
The average employee puts in an extra 7 hours checking email and returning calls.
That adds up to 30 extra hours a month, and 360 extra hours a year . . . or 9 extra WEEKS of work.
Nearly 50% of people said they feel like they have no choice but to put in the overtime at home.
68% of people say they check work email before 8:00 A.M. and 40% check it after 10:00 P.M.
Half check it in bed . . . 57% check their messages while on family outings . . . and 38% check email at the dinner table.
