I'm Steve Hafner, Kayak CEO, and This Is How I Work
My out of office messages tell people that their emails will be automatically deleted while I’m gone. If it’s important, they can tell me when I’m back or handle it themselves. Life is too precious and short to always be “on.”
How refreshing to see a CEO use model this behavior. Hopefully more bosses will adopt this radical idea to combat the post-vacation email avalanche.
Change starts from the top.
