In any professional environment, awareness, preparation, and communication are key to successfully navigating situations and changes we encounter. Professional etiquette is an unwritten code of conduct regarding the interactions among the members in a business setting. When proper professional etiquette is used, all involved can feel more comfortable, and things tend to flow more smoothly and are more productive.

The last two decades have brought about many changes to the way people work and the why behind how we choose to spend professional time. From the technology we use to the physical environment we work in, how we perform day-to-day tasks has become a focus more than in times past. The pandemic can be partially credited for these changes, but it is also due to the transition of the climate of the world brought on by generational differences in the way we approach work and life in general.
