Work Etiquette

  1. We all know that work is sometimes hectic and you might deal with a crappy day. Usually Monday’s are horrible. It doesn’t mean you have to shout loud and make the same for others as well.
  1. Greet your colleagues with a smile in the morning. It would give you and them a motivation to start your day positively.
  1. Help your co workers when they are in need of. Your support may boost up their confidence. Also don’t be too naive. Know who actually requires and who is being shirk.
  1. Plan an informal outing once in a while with your teammates. It helps to ease tensions between within i.e. if there are any. You can plan any fun activities which includes physical activity as most of us lead sedentary life in office.
  1. Never allow yourself too much into the personal lives of your colleagues or advise them when not asked as they may lead into unwanted drama. Keep it professional
  1. Never talk about how much money is your teammate making as it is one of the strict HR rules that needs to be confidential.
  2. Be punctual. Your boss or whoever it is respects when you come on time and do your work sincerely. You don’t need to explain your dedication. Actions speak more than words.
  1. If you have to keep your mobile phone on, keep it vibration mode. No one needs to hear what your favorite song is.
  1. Make sure your team gets rewards not only the review meets. Everyone work must be appreciated as well.
  1. Don’t discuss your problems with co workers. It would be of no help. It would create more mess than what it was in the first place. Talk to your manager who actually can give you a solution.
  1. Never give your attention to any toxic employees or indulge in any office politics. You might be digging your own pit.
  1. Know when to say no. Don’t be hesitated to avoid any work which you think you cannot handle or meet the deadlines. But make sure you don’t say no to everything. Be flexible, transparent and optimistic.
