[Infographic] Easy Access to Email Changes Work State of Mind

April 19, 2012 — Leave a comment

When you clock out of work, do you leave your email behind as well? If so, you’re definitely in the minority.

A recent survey of 543 business execs by ad agency Gyro and Forbes Insights found 98% of such workers check email during their “off” time. If that’s not bad enough, 63% say they check on their email at least every one or two hours when they’re out of the office. The trend holds up when the execs are on vacation — only 3% say they don’t check work emails.

Despite the impingement on their leisure time, most of the workers surveyed say they like being able to check in when they’re away. As the following infographic shows, they have their reasons.
