Welcome to the Emailogic blog
At Emailogic we believe everyone should be a brilliant email user. Training in email etiquette creates huge productivity gains that mean staff have more time, reduce email traffic and communicate more effectively. And it is not difficult to achieve - as hundreds of thousands of Emailogic graduates have proven.
A study of 78 organisations by Loughborough University published recently in Personnel Today revealed that 70% UK office staff interviewed were physically inactive.
Inactivity at work, unsurprisingly, leads to higher body mass index and is also associated with a decrease in mental wellbeing.
Reliance on email for communicating with colleagues, rather than getting up and having a face to face conversation, is a significant factor here.
While email has revolutionised the way we communicate in business it has become the default method of communication.
Email etiquette training shows users how us to use email more responsibly and consider when it is best to use the phone, have a face to face interaction or use another method of ‘richer’ communication such as IM or a web meeting.
This is important as the way we interact with others not only defines us but can also improve our wellbeing.
Consider email etiquette training as occupational health training.
