BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Hey! Before you pen that email or sift through work messages, you might want to read this.
A new survey has ranked the worst online greetings for workplace correspondence: no greeting, followed by “Hey,” “Hey there,” “To whom it may concern,” and “Hi.” The best? “Good morning/afternoon,” “Greetings,” “Dear (sir/madam),” “Dear (name),” and Happy (day), i.e., “Happy Monday.”
The survey of 1,000 workers by the resume and job site LiveCareer.com also found that most spend a lot of time on email: 40% of employees spend approximately three weeks to more than a month — 520 to 780 hours — on work email correspondence annually.
As the results found, a “lucky” 58% who claimed they needed no more than two hours per day to sort out work-related emails had the least work experience (1-2 years). At the same time, the percentage drops to 36% in the case of employees with the longest work experience.
As LiveCareer posed, “The more you work, the more you care? Or is it just workplace Stockholm syndrome?”
