British employees receive five to ten work-related emails out of office hours every single day, a new poll has revealed.

Technology provider Fasthosts polled 2,000 employees, and the shocking results reveal that office workers are finding it difficult to strike a work-life balance with almost half of respondents (49.2%) receiving five to ten work emails outside their normal working hours.

What’s more, 20% of those surveyed admitted that they reply to these out-of-hours emails, with 60% of respondents saying that this impacts their personal life.

A further one in eight admits to saying it takes up to three hours replying to these emails – which comes at a serious cost to their personal lives.

It’s unsurprising, then, that a Statistica report found that almost half (46%) of Brits felt that they were on the edge of burnout in 2021.
