"Turning the dead time that many people spend commuting into productive time frees workers up to complete both work and personal tasks."
--Russ Stockdale, Mozy
The urge to check emails first thing in the morning is overwhelming for many, with the report finding that one in five will have logged into their email by 7:00 a.m.
Men tend to be more likely than women to reach for their smartphones from bed with over 40 percent checking messages by 7:30 a.m. compared with 25 percent of women.
There are also differences internationally with some countries preferring a gentler start to the day. Compared to a quarter of Brits who log in by 6:30 a.m., just 13 percent of French employees are checking the smartphone at the same time of day.
