Workplace Communication 7 – Business Telephone Tips to Bring in $$$
Common words and phrases can motivate or unmotivated the employees, even when used over the telephone. When an employee calls in sick, he does not expect you to give him the “third degree,” over the telephone. He does not want you to ask too many questions about his request for sick leave. Annoying comments and harassing remarks are not necessary when the employee is following the company’s policy and procedures regarding the request for sick leave. When this occurs in the workplace, if you cannot find sympathetic words and phrases to say, then you should not say anything. On the other hand, if the employee is not following the company’s policy when requesting sick leave, then the supervisor should ask to meet with the employee when he returns to work.
