Test Summary

The Workplace Etiquette test includes 20 hypothetical scenarios designed to assess a candidate's ability to determine the most effective course of action to demonstrate that their attitude and behaviours in the workplace are professional, suitable, and make a good impression on colleagues, clients, and others.

Covered Skills (Behavioural Indicators):

Dress code, punctuality, and manners

  • Considers how to present themselves in the office or when meeting with prospective clients.
  • Keeps promises, comes on time for work, and plans ahead to avoid being late for meetings.
  • Shows respect to everyone regardless of hierarchy and uses polite expressions of gratitude.

Interactions, communication, and correspondence

  • Adopts a courteous behaviour when interacting with others and refrains from interrupting.
  • Communicates information professionally by telephone, videoconferencing, or other devices.
  • Keeps email correspondence professional, respectful, and gets to the point quickly.

Why measure Work Etiquette?

When it comes to working in a professional setting, etiquette matters. How people present themselves and interact with those around them (coworkers, supervisors, clients, or direct reports) speaks to who they are as a person and as team members, and can directly influence the trajectory of their career.

Workplace etiquette norms are unstated but widely accepted guidelines for working with others. They may differ depending on the company's culture, but many are common to most jobs and industries.

Workplace etiquette is crucial because it fosters a professional, mutually courteous environment and facilitates communication, allowing an office to function as a productive environment.

People who exhibit strong workplace etiquette are more likely to come on time for work and meetings, avoid using controversial terms in the office, and maintain professional interactions. They follow a suitable dress code, interact professionally over the phone and in emails, and treat everyone with respect.
