Time To Rethink Those Out Of Office Messages

 

“The bad news is that I’m out of office. The good news is that I’m out of office.”

We hope you’re getting some time to switch off over the summer and not getting too stressed about those work emails or Slack messages while on holidays.

Which is why it’s so important to craft the right out of office message.  

 

 

On a more serious note, for many leaders, the summer is an opportunity to take a step back and look at their communication stack and communication culture.

This is why we loved this guide to asynchronous communication by the team at Doist.
