Don’t Let Workplace Manners Take a Vacation

It’s summer and that makes for hot, sweaty, uncomfortable workers. Even a moment out in 90+ degree heat and humidity can spur laziness and irritability.

But just because it’s summer doesn’t mean your workplace manners can take a vacation. There are certain written and unwritten rules of behavior and decorum that apply to the work environment, and it’s important now more than ever to respect each others’ common areas.

Go ahead, review your habits when it comes to your work environment. Think about the time you spend in your cubicle, the kitchen, the restroom, and even your email. Is your cubicle behavior something to be left at home? Do you talk so loudly that you interrupt or distract fellow employees? Do you clean up after yourself in the kitchen and bathroom? Is your email etiquette on par with how you would communicate with someone face to face?

If you’ve been slacking in these areas, it’s time for a serious facelift in your etiquette skills.

Clean up your act – your colleagues will appreciate it!
