Use Case

Reduce Employee Email Overload

Develop a data-driven internal email strategy and stop sending too many internal emails.

Does this sound like you Question mark

We don’t even know if employees read our emails. It feels like our email comms are becoming less effective over time, and we heard that some are even filtered out.”

“Too many different people and departments are emailing our employees—I wish we could centralize our communications.”

We send all email to all-staff, it’s a hassle to get IT to create new distribution lists. It’s extremely important for us, but not a priority for them.”

The Challenge

Email is the best way to communicate with large groups of employees, but studies show that email overload can increase stress, decrease productivity, and ultimately dilute the effectiveness of your communications.

Many messages aren’t relevant to an entire organization, yet they still end up being sent to an all-staff distribution list. When you don’t know whether or not a message is resonating with employees, the impulse is often to send more email, increasing noise and not solving the problem.

Convincing other departments or leadership that messages shouldn’t go to all-staff, or that your organization would benefit from sending less email, is hard to do without email metrics and data.
