Personal And Work Emails Are Merging
from the which-account-for-what-now? dept
In the last year or so, I've noticed a clear trend: when it comes to work-related communications, I've been receiving many more emails at odd hours of the night or over weekends. It's become clear that people are doing work email from home -- and also personal emails from work. Basically, email has become an any time, any where tool for communications. As the article suggests, this could raise all sorts of questions about when is the best time to email people for work-related issues. Of course, some companies will probably only pay attention to the "personal emails at work" part and freak out, while ignoring the fact that their employees are actually a lot more productive by being more flexible.
