Each company or organization sets up a Vocoli "instance" to generate surveys, to build a suggestion box, and to connect with the team.
Which one of these is you?
We are constantly sharing your articles over on our Twitter feed, as well as various other social media outlets. Here are our favorite discoveries of the week:
For twitter newbies, there is a lot of unwritten etiquette to be considered a decent account to follow. This infographic highlights some of the many reasons why people decide to unfollow you. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of these crimes you committed.
One we were surprised not to see on this list was people unfollowing you after a certain amount of time where you don’t follow them back, it’s only polite.
As far as we’re concerned QFNS should be the new buzzword hashtag of the year. Meaning: Quick Fix; Non-Solution. Something we are all guilty of in the work place from time to time.
While this article is heavily E-learning based, the moral of the story resonated with us. It’s easy to take shortcuts, especially when 4pm rolls around and you just got assigned a new project. As an employee you want to stay actively engaged and knowledgeable of the organization; this helps us avoid pitfalls and develop great solutions to future problems. Having a solid fix and solution is always the route that you want to go. Unless of course you want hot coffee in your lap on the drive to work in the morning.
This is a must-read for any manager. Your employees aren’t going to outright and tell you that you’re being a bad manager so this is a great list just to check in with yourself. A lot of this is about remembering that employees are people too and you should treat them as such. One of our favorite and particularly snarky remarks: “First and foremost, you’re my boss, and if your lousy management gets in my way instead of helping me out, you can take your compliment about my taste in clothing and stick it where the sun don’t shine.”
There’s a lot more to being a good manager than knowing the organization and mission well. Fostering an environment where employees can thrive and easily collaborate with each other can really bring your company to the next level. This means you need to know your employees and communicate well with them.
Flexible work has been on the upswing for a while now. However, most of us who don’t telecommute are usually in our offices for at least 40 hours per week. This is definitely an important thing to cover for your employees. Happy workspace=happy workers=more productive workers.
Example: We’re currently rallying for a slide installed in our stairwell ala Google. Stay tuned we’re well on our way to a major breakthrough on this one. (One with a spiral pretty please?)

It doesn’t have to be that drastic, obviously. But even offering free coffee in the kitchen or allowing your employees to work elsewhere in the office when their desk gets boring can work wonders for productivity.
Speaking of productivity, it doesn’t always mean put in as many hours as possible. You’re bound to get burnt out that way. This list offers up a few tips to bring you back down to earth and out of your work bubble. Weirdly enough, taking short breaks throughout the day keeps your brain on its toes rather than being hyper focused all day long. So basically what we’re saying here is: take a step back and cool off before the steam starts coming out of your ears.
