Getting Ready for Vacation
I’ve always been boggled by the time investment that goes into taking a vacation from work. In a perfect world, workers would just leave at the end of the day, go on vacation and then come back with everything as it should be. If only it were that easy. It’s important to always put a plan in place before you leave the office. Luckily, I work with a group of great people, all who are willing to pitch in for a colleague who’s going to be away. And no one takes advantage of the situation. We do all we can before we go so as not to overburden anyone else. A couple must-dos:
- Always let people know before you put them in your out-of-office email.
- Work a little bit ahead so you won’t be swamped with your regular work upon returning.
- Clean your desk just before leaving -– it’s so nice to be greeted by organization as you get back into the swing of things.
