No Escape From the Office?

Delete-button-150x150With most employees adopting the ”always on” culture, it is refreshing to discover that some large companies are automating the deletion of e-mails while their staff are on annual leave. Instead of the usual out-of-office reply, a message is returned advising that the e-mail will be automatically deleted and should be re-sent, if important, after a certain date.

It would appear that most people that receive this notification respond positively and wish that their company would adopt a similar way of thinking. It strikes me that these fortunate employees are likely to remain more positive post holiday, than those returning to an overflowing inbox containing many now irrelevant e-mails.

Are you brave enough to have such an out of-of-office reply or even switch off your mobile devices while you are on holiday?

The Paperless Office?

Technology can be useful. It must be useful to really make a difference in people’s lives. One thing that we are seeing more and more of, and trying to do for ourselves, is look at ways of cutting down on paper, not only for ease of use and productivity but also to help reduce paper waste.

It’s not a simple process, but with some guidance, a small and relatively inexpensive scanner and an application like Evernote, you can make significant gains and introduce a paperless system into you office, or home.

We would recommend an iBook available on the Apple App store called Paperless:

Paperless takes the mystery (and fear) out of going paperless with your Apple technology. The book includes 32 screencasts, 4 movies, over 26,000 words, and other rich-media assets to turn you into a paperless ninja. The material is accessible to beginners and power users alike with a thorough explanation of all the hardware, software, and workflows necessary to finally conquer paper.

It is a terrific read and you can learn more about it by clicking here.
