Business Etiquette and Ethics

“Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.”

Proper etiquette sets a tone for clients and customers that the business has a productive and successful environment, and the impression created when everyone displays professional manners helps the company’s profitability. Business etiquette is an integral part of different countries’ and regions’ business culture. Etiquette encompasses the prescriptive elements of culture—the things people are expected to do and say, or to avoid doing and saying. Good business etiquette is a valuable skill-set that will make you stand out from others, enhance your chances at success and help you land that dream job.
