This happens frequently over the holidays when many people take time off from work to be with their families and friends, but you can’t really blame them. According to research, skipping vacation could be detrimental to your health. However, before you abandon your cubicle, it is a good idea to follow these tips to let others know you will be away. Set up an automated out of office message on your phone and email. Information that should be included in this message is the dates you will be gone and whether or not you will have access to voice mail or email while you are away. Remember that this out of office message is for work and keep it professional. It is important to provide some, but not too much detail in your out of office message.

  Sometimes the workday gets too monotonous to bear. If you need a quick way to spice things up, why not engage in a little harmless practical joking? Harmless is the operative word. Nevertheless, we also urge you to pick your victims carefully. Make sure the co-worker you prank has a good sense of humor, and make sure you are prepared to accept any payback that may come your way. Play at your own risk! Office Prank #1 – Crazy Glued Candy Purchase a bag of small, individually wrapped candies such as caramels or mini size chocolate bars. Crazy glue all the candies together and place the massive hunk of candy into a bowl.  If done correctly, it will look like you just refilled your stash. Set the bowl out in an obvious place and watch for your first unsuspecting victim. When someone comes by to grab a candy they will lift the entire, glued up pile. Office Prank #2 – Box with No Bottom You know that person who has all their personal packages shipped to the office?

Quality. Innovation. Reliability.

The Swingline name means products you can trust. For over 80 years we’ve helped you successfully achieve your workplace goals and move on to other projects. From staplers to trimmers and punches; from sharpeners to shredders including the revolutionary NEW Stack-and-Shred; you can depend on Swingline to help you get the job done.

A Few Words About Staplers

Staplers have been around for 300 years, and the idea is even older. But they weren’t exactly practical until the 19th century. There’s a lot more to know, and it’s fun and interesting (no cribbing for term papers, now.)

A Few Words About Us

Located in the rolling hills northwest of Chicago, Swingline made its reputation over 60 years ago as the first stapler manufacturer to let you pop open the top of the product and drop in the staples. Seriously. We’ve been making equally revolutionary developments in office products ever since. Swingline is a division of the ACCO Brands Corporation.
