• An employee has to be a good communica-
tor for an effective employee relationship. Be
transparent in your communication. Never play
with words with an intention to confuse oth-
ers. If you do not agree to anyone, don't simply
say a yes.
Sit with him and discuss in a way to convince
the other party.
• One needs to be firm on his statements.
Don't change your mind quite often. It leads to
misunderstandings and confusions among
• Be patient and never be rude to anyone.
One should speak what is acceptable at the
workplace. Don't use foul words against any-
one. Learn to keep a control on your tongue.
Avoid being hyper at work. It is always better
to ignore minor issues rather than fighting
• One needs to be disciplined at work. Follow
your organisation's policies. Never be late to
work. If your office timing is 9.30 am, make
sure you are there sharp at 9.28 am. Work for
yourself, not for others. Your boss cannot al-
ways sit on your head. If your superior is not
there in the office, it does not mean you will
roam here and there. Sit at your workstation,
concentrate on your work and leave on time.
Don't unnecessarily irritate people. If you are
not disciplined; no one would appreciate you.
• One should respect his superiors as well as
his colleagues. Relationships would never im-
prove unless and until you respect others.
Treat all as one.
• One should give his team member his de-
sired space. Respect each other's privacy. Too
much of interference in each other's work is
bad. Avoid staring at anyone's computer
screens or try overhearing anyone else's con-
versation. Don't open couriers or notepads not
meant for you. It might contain something
confidential and the other person may not like
• One should always keep his superiors in
the loop in every communication. If you are
sending an email to an external party make
sure a cc is marked to your boss and he is
aware of the entire development. Any informa-
tion meant for all team members should be
downloaded to them in the correct way.
• Avoid being jealous at work. If your col-
league has done well, do appreciate him.
• The first and the foremost mantra for a healthy
employee relationship is effective communication.
A professional must communicate effectively by care-
fully putting his thoughts into relevant words to avoid
confusions and better understanding at the workplace.
One should never play with words or speak some-
thing which might make the other person feel awk-
ward or out of place. One s communication has to
be crisp and precise to create an impression. There
should be transparency in speech at all levels for a
Pass on the information as it is. Never
manipulate the truth. Communication
is an art. No individual is born with
effective communication skills; it comes
in due course of time with practice.
• Professionals must depend more
on written modes of communication
than verbal as it is more reliable and
one can t back out later. An email is
nothing but a reflection of one s
thoughts and should be self explanatory
for the others to respond accordingly.
Take care of the style and font of the
mail. One needs to be very careful about
the subject line as the other person
opens the mail only when the subject
line is impressive and relevant. The
mail should be marked to all the
employees who should be a part of the
communication with a cc to the team
leader for him to be aware of what is
happening in his team. Don t send mails
separately to individuals as it might
create a confusion and eventually a
friction among employees.
• One should never adopt a casual
attitude at work. Be professional in
your approach. Learn to be disciplined.
A professional must abide by the poli-
cies of the organisation for better rela-
tions and peace at work. An individual
should not take frequent leaves to
ensure timely submission of work.
Don t unnecessarily ask for favours
from your team members. For a better
relationship with the fellow workers,
one should not interfere in each other s
work. No one would appreciate if you
peep into your colleague s computer
screen or open something not meant
One should be more concerned with
his own work rather than bothering
about others. Your organisation pays
you for your hard work so one should
not waste his time in criticising or mak-
ing fun of others. How would you feel
if someone unnecessarily pulls you into
a controversy? You would never feel
like talking to him. Avoid playing blame
game at work. Learn to own your
responsibilities else you would be left
all alone in the office. Backstabbing
should be avoided as it is considered
highly unprofessional and spoils the
relationship among the employees.
• Don t walk into meetings empty
handed. Carry a notepad along with
you to jot down the important points
for future reference. An individual can t
remember each and everything thus it
is always advisable to write down some-
where to avoid forgetting things later
and earn the criticism of others. Develop
the habit of carrying a planner to mark
the important dates.
The agenda and the minutes of the
meeting must be circulated among all
so that everyone gets a common picture
and nobody feels neglected.
• It is essential to maintain the deco-
rum of the office. Remember you are
not sitting at your home where you
can shout on anyone.
Be polite to everyone irrespective of
his designation and level in the hier-
archy. Never use foul words or abusive
language against anyone as it lead to
severe disputes among employees. If
you do not agree to someone, it is better
to sit with him and discuss rather than
arguing and spoiling your relationship.
A professional must avoid gossiping
and spreading unnecessary rumours at
• Employees must help each other
at work for a better relationship. One
should avoid being jealous and selfish
at work. If someone has done well, do
appreciate him. Lend a sympathetic
ear to your fellow workers if they are
in trouble. Be a little more adjusting.
Things can t always be the same as you
want, compromise sometimes to your
best extent possible. Don t just rush to
your desk and start working the
moment you step into your office.
Greet others with a warm smile. Take
your lunch with your team members
and do go out once in a while to increase
the comfort level. Celebrate festivals at
the workplace where each and every
employee can come together and enjoy.
Don t forget to wish your colleague on
his birthday. Bring a nice gift for him

and until you respect
