The sick leave data is interesting (at least to me) because stress is one of the top ten causes of absenteeism. Information overload and RSI in turn are two of the major causes of stress. With email and social media on the increase it is my experience that first, many people are drowning in information (well at least data) and need help to prioritise. Second, we spend more and more time computer dealing with all this stuff and hence the increased risk and incidences of RSI.
As to the white paper - well yes, it was a plug for it!
Will make sure my next column is plug free.
Best wishes for 2013.
