It is recommended that when transferring a call you use the "warm transfer method". This method allows the transfer party and the transferring to party to get meaningful information about the call before actually making the transfer. 
It is good practice to change your voicemail greeting when you are away from the office for an extended period of time, such as vacation, etc.
