No email dayyou say?
Square One Resources becomes the latest company to launch a no email day.
On Friday, 5th March, 120 of its London based recruitment consultants and back office staff were encouraged to focus on direct conversations either face2face or by phone rather than the ever increasing dependence on the inbox.
Square One Sales Director, Tim Harlow, says: - People two desks apart or on the same floor send an email rather than get up and talk to each other.
Some companies try to reduce email traffic because they think it will improve productivity but we think the issue of stress is largely overlooked. You sit at your desk while your inbox chimes all day with new issues and questions, all the time with one eye on what new is coming through.
Could you go without an email? Without a text? Without a Tweet or a Poke? Recruitment is a people industry after all!
