5 factors which ruin your impression in MNCs
YOUTH HAS A SPECIAL ATTRACTION FOR MNCS?
That’s because Multi-National Companies offer
a distinctive work culture and values which sets you apart from others in your
professional as well as personal life!
But just belonging to an MNC doesn’t
suffice! You have to embrace that culture and imbibe those values in everyday
life to maintain a good impression at an MNC.
Basically, it’s all about corporate etiquettes!
You gotta do it right!
If you are also working in an MNC or if you
want to work in an MNC someday, these are the 5 factors which make a huge
impact on your impression…
- Telephone Etiquette
Everybody has a smart
phone now-a-days but that doesn’t make you a smart person. The way you use
phone makes a big impact on your image or persona. And it is not just about
talking over a call. Today, the smartphone has so many more uses. What if your
eyes are glued to your screen all the time, while others are interacting? What
if your phone rings during a meeting? What if you have put earphones and now
you are speaking too loudly? From your ringtone to your tone, the way you use
phone, defines you as a person!
- Lunch Etiquette
There are people who bring
lunch from home, then there are those who order for a delivery, and then there
are those who have a ‘fast’ - at a regular office in India. Whether you are
having a lunch with colleagues or client, just make sure you don’t eat up your
reputation. Be it the way you eat, the way you talk while eating, the condition
in which you leave the table after lunch – these are the small things which
make a big impact on your reputation. Spilling food, eating in unhygienic
manner, choosing creepy topics while talking – leaves a bad taste!
- Desk Etiquette
The organization assigns
you a work station or desk to carry out your daily tasks. And you always have
that freedom to personalize the desk. However, your desk tells a lot of things
about you. For example –cleanliness, sincerity, religiousness, creativity, etc.
Your desk represents you whether you are there or not. A messed up desk
indicates how unorganized you are. Also, sometimes it reduces the level of
respect you receive from others. Keeping awful pictures, objects or even wallpaper
– some things may look cool to you, not everyone!
- Floor Etiquette
The way you conduct
yourself on the floor – talking with colleagues, courtesy for elders, chivalry,
conduct with housekeeping staff, etc. These are the small things which indicate
your attitude towards others. Also, the way you meet and greet people every day
– from good mornings to goodbyes – makes a lasting impression in people’s
minds. How do you participate in formal & informal groups? How loyal you
are to the organization and your own team? How conscious you are about others
while carrying out duties – is watched closely!
- Washroom Etiquettes
Washroom is a common
facility in an office. Of course there will be people who looks after the
cleanliness and supplies but at the end of the day, the way people use it,
really matters! Starting from simple things such as toilet seat’s position to
tissue papers, from wet floors to open doors, and from sounds to funky odours –
if people are talking about using washroom after you, it is not a good sign.
Especially situations when it smells so strongly and tells everyone about your
last meal, should be avoided using before-you-go toilet sprays for
say first impression is the last impression! Well, we can debate over that but
one thing is sure – impression matters! And it takes a lot of conscious efforts
to create and maintain a good impression in MNCs. And all these efforts may go
down the drain if your washroom visit makes others close the noses. Thankfully,
with just 5 sprays of Smell Well, at least that will be sorted!! So, get started!!!
