5 Difficult and Uncomfortable Things You Should Never, Ever Put in Your Emails

Posted on March 22nd, 2017 by The Learning Factor

Email is taking a lot of flak lately. And why not? We’re inundated with it. It’s cold and impersonal. People abuse it passive-aggressively for their own political agendas. And it can be –to be frank — addictive.

The research on those companies (Google, to no surprise, being No. 1 on the list seven out of the last 10 years) says that 92 percent of employees surveyed believe that management is transparent in its business practices. And transparency begets trust.
