Hi Fellow EA’s,
Just out of sheer curiosity, who in your company is in charge of ordering business cards? Are business cards still utilized these days, or is there a better way? I am developing an on-boarding plan for our new new admin assistant, and just trying to see if keeping track and ordering business cards was something she could do for us? Or, if it should be someone in HR / ops, etc.? Would love to hear your feedback!

At my current company, our HR team handles it, and at my former company the office manager did. I think in both situations the decision was based entirely on the capacity of the HR team. I don’t think it would be something out of the ordinary to be included for an AA to handle if the question is based on who should handle it. Hope that helps!

I just saw this post, and I wanted to share this: https://linqapp.com/
We just implemented these for one of our organizations, and they have been a huge hit. Instead of giving your card to someone, they scan your card (either NFC or QR code), and they are taken to a place where they can download your contact info and/or send you theirs!
In our office, it’s the office manager who orders the business cards.
