Do you work for an organisation?
What’s its Communication Policy like? Or more specifically, its Email Policy?
Is there one?
If there is, have you read it?
Has it helped your productivity and workflow?
Has it reduced stress and improved the quality of your work?
Is it useful, or just for ‘show’?
You muddle by as best as you can, right!
Yet email eats up about 28% of our time. And most of that time is wasted.
Just think what you could do with an extra eight or so hours a week!
Inefficient email handling doesn’t only waste valuable time; it also produces poor work, causes miscommunication, and builds stress levels.
Whether you’re a sole trader or a corporate giant, this is crucial for efficiency and wellbeing.
An effective Email Policy
is one of the best ways
to break down barriers to communication.
If you work in an organisation, your Email Policy will put everyone on the same page with regard to writing style, use of email signatures, response times etc. It will improve workflow. And it will clarify any legal issues.
If you work for yourself, your Email Policy will enable you to become more efficient, to improve your business relationships, and to free up many, many hours a week.
Would you like more hours in the day?
Setting up a Policy needn’t take long. So why not set some time aside to do it, stick it in your task list and commit to it.
It’s worth spending time on it now, so you don’t go on wasting time forever.
