In the past, office etiquette rules focused on interactions between different employees. A badly dressed employee would obviously standout and would present a poor image of the organization. On the other hand, what the employee deed inside his or her cubicle was considered irrelevant unless the individual was particularly noisy or troublesome.
Today, checking out social networking websites when working in office is considered impolite. When your fellow employees are working hard and trying their best to improve productivity, it is not right for an individual to focus on personal satisfaction alone.
Cell phones have become very common and it is virtually impossible for any individual to stay disconnected for long. Calls from home, family members, relatives or friends can be very irritating for fellow office workers. Nobody is interested in knowing how you had a great time with your family during the last weekend. Nobody is interested in finding out how bad the service was when you last went on a vacation.
It is important to keep such conversions short and precise. To ramble for long durations will not only affect the concentration of other fellow workers but will also make it difficult to get a response from your own important official matters.
Organizations are becoming stricter in dealing with such problematic employees. The best option is to focus on these rules on your own so that you are not hold up in front of others for not respecting the rules and regulations in your office. Log on to the internet and ask questions or even rant about these frustrating rules. However, obey them properly when you are in office.
