Mindjet survey reveals today’s office worker is drowning in data.
Almost a third of emails received each day remain unread according to the report by the software developer.
A new survey has revealed that today’s office worker is effectively drowning in data from multiple platforms, with almost a third of emails sent remaining unread every day.

The poll found that the average worker receives 36 emails, 5 calls and attends one meeting every day, resulting in 65% feeling completely overwhelmed.
