Posted by Davenport Solicitors Team on August 17, 2016 in Employment Law, Human Resources

  • Be respectful and courteous towards others even if you do not like a particular person.
  • Dress appropriately and conform to the required dress code.
  • Help others if you are able to do so.
  • Be positive and smile.
  • Keep your voice to an acceptable level so that you do not disturb others around you.
  • Do not engage in idle gossip and “bad mouth” your boss.
  • Do not get involved in banter which may appear sexual or racial.
  • Do not try to be an attention seeker.
  • Do not assume that something is acceptable practice i.e. eating at your desk or using your mobile phone during working hours. Establish the position first from HR or your manager.
  • If you resign, make sure you write a formal resignation letter and if offered an exit interview, do not use it to personally attack your boss or co-workers.

Sticking to these simple do’s and don’ts is likely to ensure a happy and productive workplace environment and is likely to avoid your employer being dissatisfied with you and dismissing you.
