Workplace Etiquette

722 Workplace Etiquette

Effective Date:

Revision Date:

Imua Physical Therapy strives to maintain a positive work environment where employees treat each other with respect and courtesy. Sometimes issues arise when employees are unaware that their behavior in the workplace may be disruptive or annoying to others. Many of these day-to-day issues can be addressed by politely talking with a co-worker to bring the perceived problem to his or her attention. In most cases, common sense will dictate an appropriate resolution. Imua Physical Therapy encourages all employees to keep an open mind and graciously accept constructive feedback or a request to change behavior that may be affecting another employee’s ability to concentrate and be productive.

The following workplace etiquette guidelines are not necessarily intended to be hard and fast work rules with disciplinary consequences. They are simply suggestions for appropriate workplace behavior to help everyone be more conscientious and considerate of co-workers and the work environment. Please contact the President if you have comments, concerns, or suggestions regarding these workplace etiquette guidelines.

* Avoid public accusations or criticisms of other employees. Address such issues privately with those involved or your supervisor.

* Be conscious of how your voice travels, and try to lower the volume of your voice when talking on the phone or to others in open areas.

* Refrain from using inappropriate language (swearing) that others may overhear.

* Clean up after yourself and do not leave behind waste or discarded papers.
