I have long been a strong believer in the use of a bulletin board. As an educator, I have used it to inform and motivate students in my classroom. For the classroom teacher, it is one of the first issues that they address. The bulletin board can also be a valuable tool in the work place for businesses and corporations. This article will provide some useful ideas for using your bulletin board.
Outlet for Managers
Office management can use it for posting jobs, insurance information, updates on transactions and future events. Some might even use them, to show a history of past achievements. This is a great way for managers to show off their achievements.
Corporations can use it to get workers to strive for team and personal goals. This can help with production increases for the business or corporation. It keeps workers on track with reaching goals they have been established.
One of the best ways to promote your business is to promote your products. Pictures, postcards, news articles, magazine covers are excellent ways to promote. It is good to promote what has been working, but also the direction that your company is heading, in a new lines of production.
Appealing to Everyone
A good bulletin board has an appeal for all. You want to educate both outsiders and those within the organization. Make sure that your board is set up for all to understand. This means leaving out abbreviations that only members understand.
Web Site Image
If your corporation has a website, why not make your board look like the front page of your home page on your website. You can promote both your business and your website, at the same time. By tying the two together, you can accomplish many things. People can access your business away from your office. The board is a reminder of this fact, when they see it. Home pages are a great way to give out all types of information. Just place it on your bulletin board.
If your company does a lot of charitable things, show them off. A bulletin board is great for fundraisers. You can place charts or graphs on them. Pictures of successful campaigns send a positive impression of your corporation to everyone.
If your company is in competition with an equal business, use your board to compare successes. Many times this can help keep your company on track for various uncompleted projects. It also helps as a time table for these projects.
A good bulletin board can also solve problems before they begin. Posting rules and requirements can prevent a lot of future interpersonal conflicts between employees and management. You can post safety items, fire evacuation plans and tornado and earthquake safety.
Finally, the worst thing to see is an empty bulletin board. If you are a manager of an office, make sure that this tool is put to good use. Keep if fresh and updated.If you have a person with advanced art skills on your staff, place them in charge of the board. consider the bulletin board as an extension of your corporation.
