Chit Chat: Basic Business Etiquette

Everyone wants to work in an environment that is respectful and courteous. Today, we’re taking a quick look at basic business etiquette that is used to create a pleasant working environment for everyone. 
  • Hold doors open for everyone. Open the door for people, allow everyone to move through the door and hold the door for anyone who is entering the door behind you too. The door should be held open for all people regardless of their status or their gender.
  • When in a lift, hold the door open button down until everyone has entered or exited the elevator. It’s also common courtesy not to enter the lift until everyone has exited.
  • Stand up when a person or people enter the room and greet them with respect by shaking hands.  Help them to remove their coats and offer to hang them up or place it on the back of a chair. Offer your visitors a seat before you sit back down.
  • Introduce people of lower business rank to the people of high business rank.
