Understanding What It Is and How It Can Work For Us

A 2015 study conducted by Yahoo Labs found that the most common email response time was just two minutes.

According to the Harvard Business Review article “Collaborative Overload”, the time employees spend on collaboration has increased by 50% over the past two decades.

During the pandemic, the way we have worked and socialised has changed considerably.  Many of us are negotiating for bandwith or WIFI and juggling daily life in a much different way.  The need to communicate with colleagues and clients has increased and researchers found it was not uncommon for workers to:

  • spend a full 80% of their workdays communicating with colleagues in the form of email (on which workers’ spend an average of six hours a day); and 
  • attending meetings which fill up 15% of a company’s time, on average

Now, is it less about the instant replies (synchronous communications) or more about replying when you can (asynchronous communications)?  Here's an important question, how are we managing our work-life balance?  Join us for a conversation with global workplace experts to learn more about the significance of this topic.  We are all in this together, let's explore our options to communicate.
