Hey all, Welcome to Geeksforjobs
“There will be rules that should not be broken”.
There are some rules in business etiquette that are not meant to be broken. But some rules are like common knowledge, so many times people do not know how many times they have made mistakes.
In the present case, small and large companies have adopted a more laid-back startup culture. In the current situation, business etiquette became the most important.
1. Greetings to all
Greeting is basic etiquette. It is not only polite but also establishes synergy. You might not know that the people you have greeted may be, so it is most important to greet everyone with equal kindness.
A simple greeting is enough. But to remember, you have to add something that they find favorable and enjoyable to you. If they are not interested in talking to you while greeting, do not force them to talk.
2. Eye contact and handshake
Handshakes are a universal business of greetings worldwide. A firm is a handshake that is considered positive and a weak negative.
Always try to offer your hand. Really high ranking people offer their hand first, if they don’t then you can give your hand. Eye contact and smile on the face is very important when shaking your hands. People who are not having eye contact seem to lack confidence.
3. be on time
Whatever it is, whether it is work or a meeting or anything else, it is important to be on time. And one must remember that time is precious.
If you miss the deadline, the hole team will be affected. It is easy to determine how much time you need to complete your work in a team. It is better to know how long it takes for the team to complete and report. So that you will get a good impression by the team members completing the task within the time limit. If you arrive late, it will make it disrespectful for you by the team. So never delay while working in a group. If you think you will be late, inform the team.
In the present case, this does not mean that it is a face-to-face conversation or phone or email, every interaction should be professional. Communication will be of two types: verbal, non-verbal. When it comes to face-to-face interaction you should maintain proper verbal and non-verbal communication. In face-to-face interaction, you should maintain proper eye contact, facial expressions, etc. When it comes on the phone you must have a good tone and listen properly to the skills to answer properly. When it comes to email connection, you must have good writing skills. And in email or message interactions, your text should be short and to the point. But don’t say anything you don’t need personally.
5. Apply Properly
The dress code has become very relaxed in recent decades. As much as we want to tell ourselves that “don’t judge a book by its cover”, our immediate response is to do just that. Surveys show that people notice about others by their appearance. Dressing is the first impression on us by others.
You do not need to wear a luxury dress. Simply smart and polite attire and proper show shows that you do your best to be yourself with a good look.
6. Manners Worthy
Everyone needs dining etiquette.
Rules while having dinner / lunch
1. You should not talk with our mouth or chew it in the open.
2. no elbows on the table
3. You do not blow your nose with a napkin
4.No texting or playing with your phone on the tab.
7. Keep Your Work Area Clean
A desk becomes cluttered with old coffee cups, stacks of paper, and more post-it-notes that will free up space, distract you and annoy others. If you do not keep your work area clean and hygienic, then you cannot manage your work. Your scope reflects your work and professional image. Maintaining a clean and clean working area for a good professional life.
8. Keep your phone away
Nowadays people are very much attracted to their smartphones, tablets and wearable devices. It became difficult to disconnect people with him. But you have kept all your devices away from you. Texting or chatting at meeting times is plain rude. Checking your phone frequently affects the company and makes you lose your job. If you are distracted by your phone then it is impossible to give your full attention. So keep it away from you. Switch it to silence or turn it off completely.
9. Respect for others
Working in the office means that you are sharing space with others. People around you can share their thoughts, ideas with you. Show respect to people and their thoughts and opinions.
