'No Email Friday' pays off for Florida-based bank
6 January, 2012 - 10:52
According to Gene Evans, Senior Vice President at USAmeriBank in Clearwater, having a day without email has improved internal communication and has allowed the bank to become more efficient.
By now, we've all heard about Atos doing away with internal email.
Evans says he implemented his own 'No Email' policy 6 months ago within his bank's retail division. The reason?
"I think that as technology has improved we've gotten lazy about communicating verbally," he says.
Instead of composing long-winded emails, Evans' employees now pick up the phone and solve problems much faster. There's also less of a chance of messages being misread which poses the risk of hurt feelings among colleagues.
