It is used to calculate the corporate cost of spam per employee and it targets on individual users with direct mail messages. Junk email cost affects the time, money and resources of an employee.

Formula:

Average salary = Average annual salary / (No of working days x 8 x 3600) No of Spams = No of emails x Spam Percentage / 100

For Company

Wasted time yearly = ( No of spams x Time to read a spam x No of working days / 3000) x No of employees Daily lost salary = ( No of spams x Time to read a spam x Average salary) x No of employees Monthly lost salary = Daily lost salary x (No of working days / 12)

For Employee

Wasted time yearly = ( No of spams x Time to read a spam x No of working days / 3000) Daily lost salary = ( No of spams x Time to read a spam x Average salary) Monthly lost salary = Daily lost salary x (No of working days / 12)
Example :

A corporate company 'x' has total number of employees 30.Working days of the company is 235 days per year and the average annual salary given by the corporate company to its employees is 30000.The average e-mail received to the company is 10 where the percentage of spam email is 5%.The time spent to resolve the spam email is 5 sec. Calculate the Average Salary, No of Spams, Yearly wasted time, daily lost salary and monthly lost salary of the company and each employee.

Given,

Working days = 235 per year, Number of Employees = 30, Average Annual salary = 30000, Average emails per day = 10 per person, Percentage of spam = 5%, Time spent on each spam = 5 seconds

To find,

Average Salary No of Spams Wasted time yearly Daily lost salary Monthly lost salary

Step 1:
 Average salary = Average annual salary / (No of working days x 8 x 3600) = 30000 / (235 x 8 x 3600) = 0.00443
Step 2:
 No of Spams = No of emails x Spam Percentage / 100 = 10 x 5 / 100 = 0.5
For Company:
Step 1:
 Wasted time yearly = (No of spams x Time to read a spam x No of working days / 3000) x No of employees = (0.5 x 5 x 235 / 3000) x 30 = 5.88
Step 2:
 Daily lost salary = (No of spams x Time to read a spam x Average salary) x No of employees = (0.5 x 5 x 0.00443) x 30 = 0.33
Step 3:
 Monthly lost salary = Daily lost salary x (No of working days / 12) = 0.33 x (235 / 12) = 6.51
For Employee:
Step 1:
 Wasted time yearly = (No of spams x Time to read a spam x No of working days / 3000) = (0.5 x 5 x 235 / 3000) = 0.2
Step 2:
 Daily lost salary = (No of spams x Time to read a spam x Average salary) = (0.5 x 5 x 0.00443) = 0.01107
Step 3:
 Monthly lost salary = Daily lost salary x (No of working days / 12) = 0.01107 x (235 / 12) = 0.22
