Dear Colleague,

Every company has rules and regulations, whether written or unwritten. Often those rules govern employees’ actions and affect how a company presents itself to the public. Following regulations will obviously keep everything running smoothly – but did you know that not following protocol can hurt your profits?

It’s true. Etiquette isn’t just about using the right fork or knowing how to RSVP. In business, etiquette can be just as important as the wording in a contract or your treatment of a key client. Courtesy still goes a long way, and if you stand out because of your professionalism, you could find yourself receiving more than just a grateful smile.
The workplace has changed, and so has protocol. Keep up with the times.
