Ferrari hates email

Ferrari has issued a strange press release this morning.  It reads:

"Ferrari’s employees will be talking to their colleagues more from today forward. To incentivise more efficient and direct communication within the company - announced the Ferrari website - the decision has been made to place much stricter limits on the number of emails being sent. Specifically, from now on, each Ferrari employee will only be able to send the same email to three people in-house.

The injudicious sending of emails with dozens of recipients often on subjects with no relevance to most of the latter is one of the main causes of time wastage and inefficiency in the average working day in business.

Ferrari has therefore decided to nip the problem in the bud by issuing a very clear and simple instruction to its employees: talk to each other more and write less."

So from now on Ferrari employees will be banned from sending Friday afternoon jokes to more than three colleagues, from sending happy birthday emails to more than three colleagues, from sending photos of Fernando's latest facial hair arrangement and from telling more than three colleagues that even Felipe is faster than you.

Aside, presumably, from Luca de Montezemolo who will be able to email as many people he wants to tell them to stop making as many cars because Ferrari รจ esclusivo.
