No-Email Initiatives

Definition - What does No-Email Initiatives mean?

No-email initiatives are processes that replace email messaging with other types of digital messages. These types of plans aim to reduce the email load on workers and to innovate business processes to be more agile and efficient.

Techopedia explains No-Email Initiatives

In no-email initiatives, companies and other parties often use dedicated social media or digital platforms where they can use different types of messaging. The idea is that, instead of cluttering up a person's inbox, that person can use more specialized user interface designs to communicate digitally with others.

No-email initiatives also address email fatigue, which is the idea that humans have perhaps outgrown email as an outmoded form of digital communication. Experts consider the restrictions on email, for example, its linear and formulaic structure, to be responsible for making it difficult for some people to manage, and they cite some potential benefits of no-email initiatives including lower stress, better management and social evolution in an enterprise.

One example of no-email initiatives is the Atos' zero email campaign, which aims to cut down on the overall messaging load by employing different kinds of technologies for digital messaging. Messaging platforms that replace email often have features like chat rooms, forums, task lists, blogs and other modes of communication that allow people to send digital messages in more innovative ways.
