My email alert for “remote working” has been working overtime since Yahoo announced they were bringing their remote workers back into the office. And as the weeks went past and others chimed in (read here and here), it seemed that except in rare instances it was a conversation about offices and a portion of the team working away from them.

Guest Post: Toby Ruckert (CEO and Founder of Unified Inbox) Reposted from "Toby's Blog"
When Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, sends a memo about the "myth of working from home", the blogosphere reacts. There have been many articles published in recent days on Yahoos declaration of a ban on the remote working culture the company had so feverishly promoted in the years before. One such article that seems to sum up the position of many of those writing simply states: "After years of predictions, why is working from home not the norm?"

I've just had a real life lesson on what information overload is. It's 20 instant messages. 5 text messages. 15 phone calls to return. 100 work emails. 10 social network messages. 12 social network status updates. 11 pieces of junk mail. Last but not the least minutes from the previous meetings and time schedule for the new meeting.
I'm pretty sure that counts as information overload!

"There is no question email is an important tool, but it's just gone overboard and encroached in our lives in a way where employees were feeling like it was harder and harder to achieve a good balance," - Robert Musslewhite (CEO of the Advisory Board, a health and education research and software-services firm)

Everybody loves going on holiday. It gives you a chance to leave the stresses of your normal everyday working life behind and the well-deserved chance to relax. Or does it?
Having read many times of people returning from vacation to find an overflowing inbox, I started to dread returning home from my upcoming holiday. A large proportion of my work is through email and I feared returning to hundreds of messages with no idea which were important, so I started looking for ways to solve this problem. Having read many blogs on the subject I was amazed to find the answer closer to home.

Email stress is the latest in a long line of stresses that seem to plague our modern lives. It is plaguing the lives of the self-employed and the employed. We've seen studies conducted by the Glasgow University and University of California, Irvine which show that people who check their emails frequently are under tremendous stress compared to those who don't.

Flexible working during the Olympics, a choice many UK commuters crave but how many companies actually view this as a realistic option? Citrix Systems research finds the 24% of respondents intend on implementing flexible working during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

It also found:

It is a fact that people love to talk about other people and they also show a great interest in hearing about the business of other people. It's simply human nature. Recently, I had the opportunity of watching an American movie named 'Gossip' directed by Davis Guggenheim. Though it had nothing to do with work email gossip, it showed how a rumor or gossip that is nurtured and dispersed efficiently can become a mighty weapon. If you are working in an organization, think for a moment how gossipy emails effect you and the morale of your team members.
