While we here at the 4C office are fortunate to enjoy a considerably relaxed office atmosphere, there is still much more each of us can work on to make sure that we are not offending others. We should all treat each other as we ourselves would like to be treated . . . with dignity and respect. But exactly what is “office etiquette?” You might think that using etiquette in the office makes for an uncomfortable, stiff or even formal atmosphere; it is really just a matter of common sense. R – E – S – P – E – C – T. When you respect others, they will in turn respect you. You are also more likely to be viewed in a favorable way and be supported by those around you.
