    During official mail communication do we need to mention Sir/Madam to our higher ups?

    In our office we have culture of calling by names even to VP and SVP. Even during mail communication it is told to mention their name instead of sir/madam. In my opinion we are supposed to give respect to their designation. Is it good practice to call their names instead of sir/madam?

    It is very bad practice indeed to mention name instead mentioning sir/madam.At least when you go to do a official mail it is decent and office decorum to call him/her as sir/madam.So I think not only senior ups whenever we write a mail to a junior member officially we must start writing sir/madam.

    Cool Re: During official mail communication do we need to mention Sir/Madam to our higher ups?

    Hi,


    Do you know the main basic principle followed in Corporate Culture is

    Pointing out / Calling any person by his/her name

    Never use sir/madam like in college or school

    Everybody is employee of the company . So we can point out by their names .

    Designation doesn't matters when it comes for work environment

    Office Work should be followed / handled officially only

    Personally you can call them by your wish but not in office

    Read your company policy & rules for other details


    @@@Thanks

    hi friend,

    As you have said that it is a official mail, then you should definitely address you senior or higher officials with sir/madam, because its not a good practice calling the higher officials with their names.

    As a employee we need to give respect to their position and their seniority too. so i think addressing higher officials with their name is not at all a good practice.

    thanking you.

    && HI &&



    && Yes,you can do so &&


    &_& Once you got into corporate,you are allowed to call anyone by using their name &_&

    &_&
    If you use sir/madam then they won't see you as an corporate employee &_&

    &_&
    Here where everyone treated as same even freshers can also call by using the name &_&

    &_&
    Instead you people can have a nick name but that should be decent &_&

    &_&
    You can mention name even at the time of mailing because this is seems to be respectable &_&




    && Thank you &&

    Dear friend,

    Do not get confuse, because calling every employee of your company by their name is company policy, so if you do not follow company policy it would be against the ethics of company.

    Calling every employee by their names is a policy comes under corporate culture and ethics, which is now a days widely accepted almost in each industry, however calling sir/madam is practiced in many organization till today but those organizations are mainly belong to the conventional industries.

    I can understand being an Indian it seems awkward to call your seniors by their names as it is somewhat against the indian culture, but still I would suggest you not to use sir/madam to your seniors, because it may hamper your career growth. Try to find comfort in calling seniors by their name because you have to follow this practice throughout your life .

    All the best.

    Hello Friend,
    Giving respect and calling by name are two different thing and in corporate its there to call every one by name .and this policy is made o make the employee remove their hesitation ,respect themselves and others along so no need be ashamed of if you call any superior by name.this rule is there to remove the barrier of superior-inferior,senior-junior.
    so feel free to call every one by name.and in mails also you should follow the same ,sir is not a bad referral but when you put a mail you keep many person in to,cc,bcc so its suggested to refer the person by name whom the mail is intended,such that others wont get confused and they also should not feel like that you are referring few as sir and few with name it will create a bad impression .so go ahead and put every mail with the name of the person.
    Thank You.

    Giving respect and line by name square measure 2 completely different factor and in company its there to decision each one by name .and this policy is formed o create the worker take away their hesitation ,respect themselves et al. on therefore no would like be shamefaced of if you decision any superior by name.this rule is there to get rid of the barrier of superior-inferior,senior-junior.

    Therefore be happy to decision each one by name.and in mails conjointly you must follow identical ,sir isn't a nasty referral however once you place a mail you retain several person in to,cc,bcc therefore its advised to refer the person by name whom the mail is meant,such that others wont get confused and that they conjointly shouldn't desire that you simply square measure referring few as sir and few with name it'll produce a nasty impression .so act and place each mail with the name of the person.

    Do not get confuse, as a result of line each worker of your company by their name is corporate policy, therefore if you are doing not follow company policy it might be against the ethics of company.

    Line each worker by their names could be a policy comes below company culture and ethics, that is currently a days wide accepted nearly in every trade, but line sir/madam is practiced in several organization until nowadays however those organizations square measure chiefly belong to the standard industries.

    I will perceive being Associate in Nursing Indian it appears awkward to decision your seniors by their names because it is somewhat against the indian culture, however still i'd counsel you to not use sir/madam to your seniors, as a result of it should hamper your career growth. try and realize comfort in line seniors by their name as a result of you've got to follow this observe throughout your life .
    As you've got aforesaid that it's a official mail, then you must positively address you senior or higher officers with sir/madam, as a result of its not a decent observe line the upper officers with their names.

    As a worker we'd like to offer regard to their position and their seniority too. therefore i believe addressing higher officers with their name isn't in any respect a decent observe.
    Do you recognize the most fundamentals followed in company Culture is

    Commenting / line a person by his/her name ne'er use sir/madam like in faculty or college
    Everyone is worker of the corporate .
    Therefore we will suggests by their names .
    Designation does not matters once it comes for work surroundings paperwork ought to be followed / handled formally solely in person you'll decision them by your would like however not in workplace.
