Office workers in Britain waste almost two weeks a year sifting through emails and electronic documents searching for lost information on their computers, a new study has found.

The research conducted by One Poll surveyed 2,000 British office workers, and found that on average workers attended one meeting and made five telephone or conference calls a day.

According to the research commissioned by work management firm Mindjet, British workers receive 36 mails in their inbox every day, which leaves them baffled with data overflow.

One in ten participants said that they felt overwhelmed data and that it made them enjoy their job less.
