E-mail zaps productivity
Almost 40% of workers in the UK, Germany and the US waste an hour a day e-mailing friends and relatives or swapping jokes online.
These are the latest time-wasting findings from Clearswift, the company that managers content security software for email and the Web.
The other 60% aren't angels either, with the majority admitting to spending up to half an hour a day on personal e-mails. Only one in 10 workers claims never to use the company e-mail system for personal purposes.
But according to the survey findings, bosses aren't concerned.
