Don’t be the office email pest


Business email inboxes are noisier than ever, so avoiding “opt-out status” with your colleagues is crucial. Here are three tips for email etiquette:

1. Ditch the “reply all” if only one or two people need to pay attention to your email.

2. Use caution with emojis. What’s acceptable at a trendy startup may not be appropriate at a corporate office.

3. Think before you follow up. “Not sure if you saw my last email” ranked as the most annoying email phrase in a recent survey.

And, let’s be honest, there’s no place for Comic Sans in the business world.
