Dr Emma Russell, Head of the Well-being at Work Research Group at Kingston Business School, conducted an extensive review of the literature regarding strategies people use to manage their work email. Emerging themes were then sense-checked in interviews with a group of working adults to find out how these approaches work in practice....
