Bring Your Manners To Work Day

Bring Your Manners To Work Day is an interesting holiday celebrated every year on the first Friday of September. The holiday has a deep meaning and mission. Since each of us spends about eight hours a day at work, where the team becomes a second family, it’s crucial to maintain good manners. This includes keeping the workplace clean and avoiding loud conversations on the phone.

History

It is believed that good manners have magical powers as they can open doors that are otherwise inaccessible, even to a decent education. Maintaining good manners at work significantly improves relationships with colleagues and supervisors. Psychologists note that good manners also protect against professional burnout.

Today, the concept of good manners extends beyond simple gestures. Office etiquette involves maintaining a conversation, introducing yourself, organizing the work process, and keeping order in the workplace. To ensure that people do not forget about office etiquette, Bring Your Manners To Work Day was established in 2013 by the Washington School of Protocol.
