London and Quadrant Housing Trust, Britain's fourth-largest housing association, expects to make nearly one million pounds in time savings when its email-management training project is complete. The Trust began offering its 650 employees face-to-face training in how to cope better with email overload in the summer of 2002, and has already seen massive business benefits — even though more than half of the workforce has yet to receive the training. The organisation, which provides social housing to around 70,000 people in London and the South East, hired Team IT Training to provide the training on-site.
