Business Etiquette

“Etiquette means behaving yourself a little better than is absolutely essential.” Will Cuppy

In life and in business first impressions as well as on-going interactions are critical because people buy from people. Employees’ appearance, attitude and behavior are therefore a direct reflection of your company and brand.

Whether it is appropriate dress or image, sending out professional business communication, wording an email correctly or having awareness about cultural sensitivities, having good business etiquette can give us the edge in almost every situation.
