The Four Essential Productivity Courses

There are certain topics that can help any white collar business professional be more productive, from the entry-level admin to the corporate CEO.

These include:

  • Email Management – Email is a necessary tool in today’s business environment, which means that the stress of an overwhelmed and disorganized email system is now a universal problem.  A good Email Management course can give employees the skills they need to turn their email from a stressful chore to a productive tool.  
  • Organizing Files – The “Paperless Office” may or may not ever be a reality for your office, but in today’s work environments we deal with at least as many digital files as paper ones.  How do employees know where to save their work, and how to name their electronic files, especially when cloud computing gives us more choices than ever?  A good course on Organizing Files is the first step in making sure everyone in your company is using a consistent and safe system for saving and searching for all those documents and spreadsheets.  
  • Staying Safe Online – Today’s cybercriminals know the easiest way to get into a company’s systems isn’t by hacking into the server – it’s by hacking the employees themselves.  Phishing and other forms of social engineering have put every employee in the company on the front lines of cyber defense, so it’s critical to train your “troops”.  A good cybersecurity course can teach your employees what to watch out for in emails, SMS messages, and websites so they know how to stay safe online.  
  • Time Management – Always a perennial favorite, Time Management courses are more important than ever as companies look to continually improve their productivity.
