A whiteboard can be a valuable asset to any office. Whether you work from home or in a traditional office setting, a whiteboard is a worthwhile investment because it allows you to put ideas, important dates, and/or your “to-do” list on the wall for easy access. And since it’s erasable, it doesn’t waste paper and can be used over and over again.
Task managers often use whiteboards to keep track of tasks they need to complete. By using a marker to write a list of tasks on the whiteboard, that list can easily be seen from the work station, serving as a reminder of what needs to get done. Whiteboards can also serve as message boards, whereas one person leaves a note for others to read. Things like “Jim is on vacation this week” or “Jane’s birthday is Friday” are typical things you might see on a whiteboard used as a message board.
Some whiteboards are magnetic and can therefore be used to hang certain paperwork like letters, receipts or faxes. Other whiteboards function as giant calendars, helping office workers keep track of their schedules a month at a time.
Finally, whiteboards work well for brainstorming sessions– they’re a way to take a whole bunch of ideas spoken aloud and write them down for others to look at and ponder. Some whiteboards end up filled with messages of inspiration, including positive quotes to help workers get through the tough times.
