Elevator is a place where people step into each other’s personal spaces. In order to respect everyone’s personal space, we need to learn and follow the etiquette.

Dos and Donts in the Lift

  • When the doors open, allow women and the elderly to enter/exit first.
  • Once you have pressed the up/down button, wait for the elevator. Pressing the button repeatedly will not make the elevator arrive any sooner.
  • Make sure that the people who were waiting before you, enter fi
  • Once you enter the elevator, make sure that you press the button only for the floor that you want to get off on. Do not press any or all buttons unnecessarily.
  • Avoid talking on the phone while in the elevator.
  • If you are talking to another person, keep your voice down so that it does not disturb the other people.

Many times we are well behaved at our workplace but we overlook the simple need to follow etiquette at common places.

Cafeteria Etiquette:

Cafeteria is the most lively, buzzing place in the whole office. People from all walks of life come to eat together. This is where lives merge.

Our Canteen Custom

Imagine the scenario: It is 2:00 P.M. and lunch break for the entire organization. Everyone flocks into the cafeteria together and there is a huge queue. Suddenly, people start pushing each other and there is a fight.

The lunch break is only one hour and the entire 500 employees swarm the canteen. They all have to rush back to work after an hour.

How would you streamline the process in the cafeteria so that the employees can eat in peace?

  • Stay in queue and wait for your turn to buy the food.
  • Avoid shouting or talking loudly.
  • Dispose your plates/trays/cutlery lying on the table after you have finished eating.
  • Put the leftover food in the dust bin and then return the food tray.
  • Avoid talking with your mouth full.
  • If there are people waiting to be seated, try to finish your meal quickly and don’t hang around without reason.
  • Don’t throw wrappers on the floor. Instead, make it a point to put it in the dust bin.
  • If you accidentally spill something on the table or the floor, wipe it clean with a tissue.

Many times we forget about others and simply think about ourselves. When each person is thinking only about themselves; it creates chaos. So we must think about collaborating to create a win situation for everybody and maintain the decorum of the place where we eat.
