Make it easy for employees to file key documents — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
If you hold regular staff meetings and distribute handouts, don’t assume your employees will save them. Some workers confess to us that they toss handouts after glancing at them. Solution: Distribute the handouts in pre-labeled file folders. Staffers will be less inclined to discard a folder of information labeled for filing. Added benefit: If you want employees to refer to certain handouts at subsequent meetings, ask them ahead of time to bring the folder.
