About Our Site
WorkEtiquette was formed to offer a unique reference point on how to behave in the workplace.
Whether we like it or not, most of us have to work to earn a living. The workplace is a microcosm of life, with friends, relationships and arguments just like in real life! In order to help you find a clear, happy path through the workplace and aim to feel fulfilled and challenged by your job, Work Etiquette has been written to address the complex issues that are part and parcel of working life.
With topics for employees, employers, colleagues and clients, Work Etiquette offers clear, detailed and accurate information that can be used for the common work place issues that can so often cause difficulty. The site contains carefully researched articles written by experts, covering topics such as internal and external email etiquette, eating at your desk and cultural considerations to bear in mind.
With a wealth of articles that provide an approachable, realistic understanding of the type of every day concerns we can experience in the office, Work Etiquette is an invaluable resource for those that are keen to adhere to the often unspoken rules that exist in every work place. All too often work place advice is geared towards the employer, or is unrealistic in terms of advice and behaviour.
We pride ourselves on making sure Work Etiquette is a helpful support to employees and employers looking to develop and maintain positive relationships both in the work place and with clients, taking into consideration every detail, from blue chip international business behaviour to office romances.
Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.
Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
