Hey everyone! It’s Tipster Friday where I give you tips you’ve probably never heard of. 

So with summer coming soon, Human Resources departments are on the prowl for new blood. Kind of like tigers that give you money if you look tasty. Your HR collateral plays a big role in capturing new talents for your company and file folders are definitely the most useful. Here are a few things to keep in mind. 

Use bright, bold colors when designing your file folders. Whether it will be used in house or for employees to take home, file folders should stand out when you open your file cabinet. 

Also choose the thickest paper stock available. I suggest 14 point cover stock. It’s very sturdy and will survive the abuse it’s bound to go through. 

Make sure the text on the tabs is easily read. Choose a simple but bold font to grab people’s attention. 

File folders are great for internal organization. Are there a lot of different departments in your company? Have a different colored folder for every department. This will be a huge help in keeping employee files organized. Plus, it makes you look super professional. 

Files folders are also fantastic for employee benefits packages. Again, make the folders brightly colored with your branding at the forefront. Your employees will be less likely to lose important papers. 

That’s all for this week! 

So, this morning I went to the most a-mazing new restaurant. They only sell toast. I know what you’re thinking. Why didn’t I come up with this? Well fyi, I’ve been making toast for like 10 years. I’m basically an expert. I just didn’t want to share my recipe. 

But seriously…you should check this place out. 

See you next week!
