                                    staggering 2.6 hours spent and 120 messages received per day.

        The following suggestions are for appropriate business acumen and are intended to
        help MIL employees be more effective in their roles:
        Customer service

        When to engage via phone call
        Need help deciphering when you should pick up the phone? Here are six situations
        when a phone conversation is better than an email:

        1.  When you want to get things resolved quickly.
        2.  When you don’t have the clarity to send an email.
        3.  When you want to build camaraderie.
        4.  When you expect there to be questions.

        5.  When it’s a person or sensitive topic of discussion.
