Unfortunately, a significant number of employees may not fully appreciate the critical role that proper business and dining etiquette, and protocol skills, play when conducting meal-related business engagements. Consequently, they may unknowingly commit costly mistakes. Whether attempting to secure a deal or cultivate a relationship, the manner in which employees interact while entertaining or dining with others can significantly influence the company's financial performance.

Mastering dining/business etiquette and protocol skills is crucial in today's fast-paced business environment to establish strong relationships with clients and colleagues. The importance of these two cannot be overstated when conducting business over a meal. In fact, they both play an equal and pivotal role in creating effective conversations.

During a business meal with a prospective client or business partner, your employee's conduct at the table can significantly influence the perception of their professionalism, attention to detail, and respect for the individual they're meeting. Their self-assured and poised demeanor can distinguish them from other professionals and bolster their ability to establish enduring connections with their counterparts.

To this end, it is vital to prioritize the development of your employees' business etiquette and protocol skills, and to equip them with the knowledge of appropriate dining etiquette for business meals. By doing so, your employees will be better able to:

  • Make a positive initial impact: Understanding the nuances of appropriate behavior during a business meal can facilitate a favorable first impression on potential clients or business partners. By exhibiting appropriate table manners and demonstrating deference to their dining companions, your employees can showcase their professionalism, fostering trust and credibility.
  • Build stronger relationships: A business meal presents a chance to cultivate profound connections with clients or colleagues. By following appropriate dining etiquette and conduct, your employees can convey respect and appreciation towards their dining companions, which can deepen professional relationships over time.
  • Close more deals:  By projecting confidence and professionalism during a business meal, your employees can enhance their likelihood of closing deals and attracting new business. When they demonstrate their competence and reliability as a professional to their dining companions, they can instill a sense of confidence in their ability to deliver results, thereby cultivating successful business outcomes.

Are your employees well-versed in conducting business over a meal while seamlessly integrating the essential business/dining etiquette and protocol skills? If not, your organization is potentially wasting precious budget dollars. It is imperative to invest in your employees and equip them with the required skills to protect your budget while securing deals and preserving critical relationships. All while doing it over a business meal.
