As you may have heard, we're trying something new at CorporateEdge to foster better communication between ourselves and with you - our clients and friends. To help us do this were switching off email every Tuesday. We call it our 'working experiment', and will continue to explore what (if any) impact there is in ceasing email for an entire day, every week.
Don't get us wrong, we believe email still has a place in modern businesses (for now), but I'm confident you'll also recognise that email often gets in the way of good-old-fashioned human interaction. My mission is to foster an environment where creativity, innovation and productivity can thrive. I don't know about you, but to date I haven't experienced any innovation sessions where participants sit in the same room, silently emailing each other 'ground-breaking' creative ideas!?
In the spirit of openness and collaboration, we'd be genuinely interested to hear your thoughts (both good and 'constructive'). Have you noticed an impact? Has your service level on a Tuesday been reduced? Or on the contrary, have you noticed the levels of care, attention and idea generation improving each week? Perhaps you feel inspired by our example and are trying something similar? Do get in touch and let us know.
Simply add your thoughts and suggestions to the comments below and we'll keep you posted on how the 'working experiment' it going.
So come on, Join the tech-free revolution and embrace a good old fashioned conversation today!Tweet
