Bring Your Manners To Work Day is celebrated on the first Friday of September. This year it will be celebrated on September 6. We need to have good relationships with our colleagues and customers as mostly we spend more time at work than at home. This Day was developed by The Protocol School of Washington to remind people of the importance of building a good relationship and treating people with love and respect at the workplace. Everyone should follow good manners both in the workplace and at home. The common bad manners at the workplace are loud ringtones, not keeping yourself clean and non-polite conversation.
“Bring Your Manners to Work Day” was created by PSOW to establish more decorum in the workplace and to create a more civilised approach to employee relations” – Eyring.
History of Bring Your Manners To Work Day
The Protocol School of Washington created Bring Your Manners to Work Day. The latest study by Robert Half Technology found that 64% of surveyed CIOs, said the rules of etiquette are changing at workplace due to the increased use of mobile devices, like cell phones and tablets, it led to violation and non-observance at the workplace. Although you celebrate Bring Your Manners To Work Day just once in a year, it doesn’t mean that you should only be well behaved at work on that one day. Use the day as a reminder of the importance of good behaviours every single day of the year, and you should also remember that those good manners help to open the doors to new opportunities in the workplace. Collaboration and unity are the keys to creating a pleasant work environment. For example, By thanking a colleague for their support to a group project, you make someone feel part of the team.
