Emailing can be very distracting to business. There should be a policy of individuals not attending to personal emails during work time. Emailing is a critical component of many businesses.
In such businesses it is important to allocate a definite time to work on accessing and dealing with emails for example on the hour. Emails should then be worked on for only a given time frame to ensure that time is still free to be productive and to deal with important business tasks such as marketing.
Paper work has to be very well organized and should not be allowed to accumulate. It is important to allocate a time to deal with incoming paperwork and there should be instituted a policy of only handling a piece of paper once.
