- If an employee is summoned to the employer’s room, he must remain standing until his chief indicates a seat. At the conclusion of the interview he must leave as quietly as possible, closing the door gently after him.
- If a junior meets his employer in the lift or in the street he should bow, but must not enter into conversation unless first addressed.
- If an employee has a need to send a letter to his chief he should commence it with the words ‘Dear sir’ and conclude with the words ‘Yours obediently’.
- Australian Etiquette, 1959
Mark McCrindle's book The ABC of XYZ gives insights and practical strategies to help parents, teachers and managers bridge the gaps and engage with each generation. However, this book is more than a research-based reference work or valuable 'how to' guide - it is also a very interesting read with facts and lists to which members of each generation will reminisce.
