I hope you get to enjoy your well-deserved rest and relaxation this summer. Remember though that our out-of-office messages can help build good relationships with service users and make our life simpler.
Here are 3 lessons I’ve learnt over time, that have helped keep contacts updated (the ideas expand on themes in the video above). It is important to:
- Identify who will engage with incoming messages, so contacts can stay connected
- Make sure that colleague has the capacity to manage incoming email
- Say who will manage email, in the absence of the alternative contact
Making time to manage our contacts in this way should help simplify our life and keep our relationships healthy.
