60% Millennials say unread emails make them anxious

As many as 60 per cent Millennials in India feel anxious when they see unread emails in their inbox, reveals a recent study.

 

The modern age workforce across the globe are increasingly getting hooked on to the practice of keeping their inbox empty/near-empty at all times - popularly known as 'Inbox Zero.' 

 

Hiver, a leading email collaboration solution for teams, surveyed  600 Indian Millennials to understand their work email behavior patterns.


The survey also found that as many as 2 in 5 Millennials get extremely uncomfortable if they haven't been able to check their work email for 3-4 hours at a stretch. 


When asked about the first app that they check on their phone upon waking up, 59% chose WhatsApp, 29% mentioned social media apps like Instagram and Facebook, and only 9% said emails. 


The report also shed a light on how emails affect employee productivity. Nearly 63 per cent  Millennials agreed that long emails hampered their workplace productivity, and that they preferred them to be shorter and 'to the point'. 

 

Interestingly, another 60 per cent stated emails can be a good substitute for workplace meetings.
