You might want to consider this over the weekend. As off-hours emails proliferate, late Sundays are turning into the new start of the workweek, says The Wall Street Journal. A LinkedIn survey showed 80% of us as working adults experienced a pickup in work-related stress on Sunday evenings. Meanwhile, a Sunday-night email analysis conducted by Microsoft [LinkedIn’s parent company] found that every hour a manager spent online generated an extra 20 minutes of out-of hours work for their direct reports. Some businesses are now pushing back against the “Sunday Scaries” by delaying email delivery until the next morning. Good planning, I think.
