How much does Spam cost my business?

If you haven’t considered how much money and time is wasted in your organization by people deleting, or even worse, clicking on links in spam emails they receive, you should do it now as you may be very surprised.

You can take a look at the following calculation for 1 employee with a minimum wage.

calculate your Spam cost Spam cost calculation

Minimum Wage = £6.08 per hour  = £0.10 per minute

Wasted employee’s time on spam = 20 minutes a month (1 minute per day) = £2

If a minimum wage employee wastes a single minute a day downloading, reviewing, and deleting spam emails, then over the course of a month spam will have cost your company more than £2 just paying for the employee’s time.

Now you can do your calculations…How many employees do you have and how many of them get paid more than £6 per hour?
