May 30, 2012
This week Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer.
Something happens in summer and people just seem to work less. Here are a few points that may help you weather the storm…
* Make sure not more than one department head within any department is on vacation at the same time. i.e: You don't want your PD and MD gone at the same time.
* Depending on the size of your staff, don't let more than 2 AEs on vacation at the same time. Ask now for everyone's time-off request so you are better organized.
* It seems many New York agency folks don't work Friday afternoons. Get all your national stuff done early in the week.
* Keep an eye out for the AEs who tend to "have a bunch of calls" on Friday afternoon, yet nothing to show for it.
You get the idea … manage in advance and your budgets won't suffer.
