Cardinal sins of emailing revealed!
Washington – With an estimation of people spending nearly a third of their time at work keeping up with their emails, there are reportedly 10 cardinal sins which are crucial to email etiquettes.
To keep sanity in place, one must not be so reliant on the technology’s lofty speed so as to forget that after sending a mail there would be an instantaneous reply, and if the waiting period is driving one impatient, a polite follow-up is always better.
According to Huffington Post, one of the long list of annoying emailing habits include sending emails to employees on the weekend, which nearly two-thirds of workers admit receiving.
Another crucial aspect of emailing is appropriate attention to the subject line, as leaving it blank or filling it merely for the sake of it with random phrases like ‘Happy Monday’ would determine the importance of the content and prompt the receiver hit the read or trash button accordingly.
Expecting people to reply soon and reminding them in person of having sent the email is equally annoying and saying that one has received it but not looked at it is as meaningless as the verbal reminder.
The report said that complete reliance on emails and not using any alternative form of communication is another awful habit which one should keep in check else complain about an overflowing inbox.
