What Should I Say in My Voicemail Greeting?
Voicemail is a fact of business life, but we have found that most people in Canada would rather not leave a message. In the same way, most Canadians are uncomfortable leaving a voicemail greeting.
What should I say in my voicemail greeting? As with any communication, it's important to be specific in what you need from your callers. Anticipate what they may be calling you about and ask them to leave pertinent information to help you begin helping them, without having to call them back. For instance, if you work in an accounting department, you may ask them to leave their account number so that you can review their account prior to returning their call.
