      Office workers spend an average of 2.6 hours per day reading and answering emails, according to a survey conducted by McKinsey Global Institute. That adds up to about 27 days per year. The findings were based on a survey of "knowledge workers," which McKinsey defines as "managers, salespeople, scientists, and others whose jobs consist primarily of interactions—with other employees, customers, and suppliers—and complex decision making based on knowledge and judgement."
