Imagine that you have taken a new job as head of Human Relations (HR) for an up-and-coming software firm. Your 150 employees are hip, smart and tech savvy. They are also big cell phone users. Cell phones are an important tool for your business communications, and you don’t want to ruin the company atmosphere of embracing new technology. However, the number of cell phone calls and texts happening in meetings and public areas has become overwhelming.
As the HR manager, compose a short email memo advising your employees on cell phone etiquette. Choose a tone and level of formality that you feel is appropriate. Remember to provide a course of action for employees who want to provide feedback.
