1 month ago No comments

Nous connaissons tous l’importance que revêt la bonne pratique du français pour l’image que l’on renvoie aux autres dans sa vie quotidienne, c’est une vitrine. Un peu comme un magasin, vos interlocuteurs vous jugeront au premier coup d’œil. Ceci est valable à l’oral où il agit comme un marqueur social, ou bien à l’écrit où il peut décrédibiliser dans le monde professionnel, souvent impitoyable.

Comment faire pour maîtriser son marketing personnel à travers une orthographe sans erreur, un mode « zéro faute » existe-t-il? Comment appliquer pour une job et ne pas se fermer de porte dès la première étape de sélection? Garder en tête aussi que pour certains au Québec, le français n’est pas la langue maternelle, les difficultés sont encore plus marquées à l’écrit et peuvent entraîner des frustrations ou des complications politiques (voici la liste des organismes de la langue français au Québec).

3 months ago No comments

As the number of tasks and activities we choose to do on our devices increases, mobile security becomes a more important concern every day. A few months ago we posted a blog questioning if antivirus for your smartphones and tablets is really necessary. While it may not be as much of a requirement as it is for your computers, a byte of prevention is always worth the possible headache of having your device infected.

There’s a bunch of these apps out there so here’s a round-up of 4 free antivirus/security apps for iOS and Android that you can download on your devices right now!

Losing your important files is the ultimate nightmare. If you’ve suffered through it before, you’re definitely already aware of the importance of keeping a backup.

3 Important Reasons to Update Your Tech

5 months ago No comments

We don’t always welcome change with open arms, but sometimes it does become necessary. It’s especially tough when it’s something we’ve grown so accustomed to, like our tech. We bet you can’t even count how many times you’ve hit the ‘remind me later’ button on your computer or phone – don’t worry, we can’t either!

We’ll admit that this is a tough subject. Sometimes we just don’t have time to sit there and wait for updates to carry out, or back up our data for the next big OS upgrade. Even if you’re not ready to do it right away, try not to put it off completely.

The three main reasons you should always update your tech are: security, compatibility, and performance. These are the most important factors to consider when you keep putting off that update! Keep reading to find out why...

Why Working Less Makes You More Productive

5 months ago No comments

Let’s be honest – some days it’s really hard to get up and be productive. Thinking of the all the work you have ahead of you for the day can be discouraging. That’s why Mondays have such a reputation for, well…kind of sucking. Mondays are a rough reminder that your two days of weekend bliss are over and you now have the whole work week ahead of you.

But, what if you didn’t? What if you had a day off in the middle of your week, or you got to come home two hours early every day? Would that motivate you to get up? Would you feel better about the week ahead? Studies say, yes you would. Not only would you feel better, but you’d be even more productive in all your work!

5 months ago No comments

We all know that working from home isn’t the easiest way to stimulate productivity. Most of us end up spending less time working and more time looking for something to munch on, checking our social media apps, squeezing in an episode of the latest Netflix show, or just plain ol’ procrastination – you know, when you start doing anything to put off your work.

Chances are you know a few people who swear by working at cafes or coffee shops. It’s definitely a popular trend that has emerged over the last decade or so. If you’re skeptical about it, we recommend you try it at least once. Apart from the benefit of free WiFi that many shops provide, you’ll have food to keep you satiated and coffee to keep you going! You might be surprised by how much you actually get done.

Whether you’re a newbie or a well-seasoned coffee shop worker, here’s a list of 5 things that are a must-have for your next work session...
