Investing in and getting into the habit of using office noticeboards is one of the least expensive and least time consuming ways of boosting business. This is because the purpose of the humble noticeboard is to boost communication, organisation and efficiency, as echoed in the Boards Direct article: The Advantages of Having a Notice Board in [the] Office. Hence, it is worthwhile shirking mod-cons in favour of a good old wall mounted noticeboard.
Becauseof the wear, tear and daily toil the standard office noticeboard is likely to receive though (being such an integral part of the office), it pays to always invest in one of a decent quality. This is especially true when you consider that the difference between a poor quality noticeboard and good quality one is likely to be a matter of mere pounds. Hence, there really is no sense in skimping.
Rather, to say money when buying noticeboards, opt to shirk the high street and shop online. By ordering your office noticeboards along with cleaning fluids and accessories via a UK based specialist company such as Noticeboards Online, not only are you likely to save money, but a whole lot of time trawling the shops too.
One use office noticeboards are put to but which is often overlooked is as a fantastic aid when throwing office meetings. As office meetings can be long, stressful and involve the to-ing and fro-ing of ideas, this means that most of us have left one if not many feeling more dazed than determined and more confused and with a comprehensive idea of what the heck to do next.
To avoid this from happening, it really is worth considering investing in a portable whiteboard, which you can also find via the aforementioned Noticeboards Online website, and save money on having delivered when bought alongside any wall-mounted boards you may require as well as all the accessories needed to make use of both.
Also known as movable white boards, portable ones are set onto free standing frames which are then fitted with castors. This enables what are super lightweight and versatile boards with the added bonus of being able to be put to use in numerous different places around the office or brought out for impromptu meetings.
Whilst office noticeboards provide a fantastic and cost effective means of keeping an office on target and organised, that is not their only use or benefit. In fact,the offices out there that really make the most of noticeboards make use of numerous boards, and not only to keep organised and ensure staff are up to date at alltimes. Providing an office team or each of your teams with a board each is a fantastic and affordable way to show that you respect and take your team seriously.
How and why? Quite simply, providing a board for an office team to use as they see fit and upon which to note any ideas or suggestions they might have, and then taking the time to pay attention tosuch boards shows your willingness to listen to your staff and potentially take advice and guidance from them as a boss, as well as dole it out. Further, boards that are not necessarily intended for specifically and directly work related matters can also be used more creatively. For example, tasking each staff member to in turn decide on a "quote of the day" or week is a great way to involve the entire office, motivate staff and get to know members a little better.
For more reasons why every business office, however big or small, should feature at least one noticeboard, head over to the NHS website where you will find the PDF document: Using Notice Boards Successfully. Whilst the NHS website might strike some as a strange place to seek advice as to all things noticeboard related, in fact and due to the fact that the NHS is one of the largest and most important organisations here in the UK to rely on noticeboards in order to function effectively, their advice is as such golden, and stands to benefit all those intending on purchasing noticeboards for their office(s).
