Overheard – clean desk policy

Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

I was accompanied by a Senior Director, who attempting to find a machine with which to demo a new product, chanced upon a staff member’s desk where some documents had been left in full view. He picked them up and said he would lock them in his own office, so that the staffer wasn’t fined. Apparently, company policy at the time was to enforce the clean desk policy through an automatic payroll deduction. :-O
