Ahead of the Division of Occupational Psychology Annual Conference this week, we’ve been promoting the results of our ‘You’ve got mail!’ research, exploring the impact of email on our health and well-being.
We’re delighted at the opportunities that we’ve had to talk about this important issue. Dr Richard MacKinnon, Insight Director at the Future Work Centre, has appeared on national television in the UK on BBC Breakfast and the Turkish television network TRT World:
Richard was also interviewed on BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio 2 in the UK and on the Pat Kenny Show on NewsTalk in Ireland. And coverage of the research has been picked up by media all over the world, including the Telegraph, Independent and Guardian in the UK, Sky News in Australia, The Times of India, Repubblica in Italy, and Metro News in the Netherlands.
The extent of interest in our study highlights the impact that email usage has on people across the world, and reinforces the role that high quality, evidence-based research can play in helping to improve people’s experience of work.
If you’re interested in finding out more about our research, including advice and guidance, visit our ‘You’ve got mail!’ page. We’ll also be sharing our findings at the DOP Annual Conference in Nottingham on Thursday 7 January at 3pm.
To further develop the evidence-base on this topic, we are looking for organisations who are interested in understanding how email is impacting their employees, and testing interventions to improve the experience of email at work. If you’d like to work with us, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 7947 4273.
