Email Etiquette

Email Etiquette (TNCC)
Email has become a very valuable tool used in the workplace. The biggest concerns when using this technology are: There is just too much of it. Too many of the messages sent have little or no value. The content is simply not audience focused. This hands-on program is designed to provide employees with the proper skillset to use email more effectively by understanding formatting techniques, content creation and proper protocol.
