Common rules of etiquette in an office

Whether you work in a cubicle or an office with a door, you should always follow the rules of etiquette. Two common rules are to use speakerphones sensibly and decorate your workspace appropriately.

If your office has thin walls or if you work in a cubicle, using a speakerphone can distract your co-workers. You have to speak loudly to ensure that you are heard on the other end. These conversations can be more irritating to co-workers than regular telephone conversations. Moreover, all your co-workers will overhear your messages if you listen to your voicemail over a speakerphone. Keep in mind that you never know when a message might contain confidential information. It’s best to use the handset when listening to voicemail.
