Employees Misuse Company E-mail

A survey was conducted to companies with over 100 employees about the usage of their company e-mails. One in every ten employees said they have accidentally hit “reply all” or sent out confidential information to unauthorized co-workers. The “human error” or leakage of information to other co-workers is causing a hostile and confrontational work environment.

60 percent of employees said they use company e-mail for non-work related tasks or information. These companies are trying to regulate and further engage their employees based on the results of the survey.
