Grammatical and Communication Etiquette Tips
Posted by Liz Taylor Jul 27, 2015
1.) Irregardless is not a word.
2.) Avoid saying, “no problem” after someone thanks you. Use, “your welcome” or “it’s a pleasure” instead.
3.) Omit “kind of” from your vocabulary.
4.) There is no need to leave a space between your sentence and an exclamation mark !
5.) Refrain from using ALL CAPS and emoticons in business email.
6.) Proofread all emails to avoid grammatical slips on simple words such as: too, to, two or there, they’re and their.
7.) Consider keeping political views to yourself versus posting on Facebook or other social media channels.
