There is a folder on every company’s SharePoint containing nothing but helpful documentation meant to make your professional life easier. An inquiry into the SharePoint structure of 10 different international IT companies revealed that each and every one of them had an active ‘Useful info’ folder on a shared drive for all of their employees to access.
‘Unlike dozens of other folders that hold nothing but irrelevant information incapable to serve a single soul, this folder has gathered throughout the years that which we might easily refer to as the company’s core values, its distilled wisdom if you want’, Mark Savage CEO of Pointless declares.
Moreover, an employee survey pointed out the fact that the folder is by far the most popular one among forgetful employees who choose to save their passwords and other private information in order to be able to access it from anywhere across the network.
‘We see a bright future for this type of folder. It won’t be long before employees will realize it can serve as a romance starting point as well. Think Tinder with the security of a VPN connection. Many of them are already slipping their phone number and a cute picture in there. They know it can go a long way’, Chris Grey system, administrator of Shady, concludes.
With 9 out of 10 professionals accessing it regularly it is safe to say the folder generates more traffic than ‘Fire and Safety Training’ or ‘Deadlines’.
