Nearly all of Coca-Cola’s headquarters employees ditch voice mail
Coca-Cola is cleaning up its in-boxes, but not the email kind.
All but 6% of employees at Coca-Cola’s Atlanta headquarters and nearby technology plaza recently opted to shut off their landline voice-mail systems. The expectation is that without voice mail, employees will have one less thing to check in on. Many had already expressed a preference for doing away with it, the company said.
The move is expected to save the company less than $100,000 annually.
“The main driver behind this project is not cost savings. It is changing the tools and methods in which we communicate as a company,” spokeswoman Amanda Rosseter said in an emailed statement.
Alternative methods include email, texting, and calling cellphones.
