Abstract:

One of the primary objectives of this study was to explore the way in which organizational members process the received information. This objective emerged from the fact that we live in a so-called information society, in which we can speak of ensuring pressures upon organizational members to process the expanding volumes of information they receive at the office. Because electronic mail seems to contribute greatly to the expanding volumes of information organizational members receive, and consequently, to the ensuring pressures to process the information, this study used electronic mail to explore the way in which organizational members process information. As a result of the fact that research on this topic remained underdeveloped so far, we developed an exploratory pattern using diary surveys in three organizations. This pattern gives a first description of the different ways organizational members read information and it gives a first explanation for these different ways.
