Are you guilty of using business jargon?

business jargon

About 124.5 billion business emails are sent and received daily. And that number is steadily growing with over a third of the global population using email. With all of these messages, there is likely to be a lot of (perhaps meaningless) business jargon. How many jargon sayings do you use?

According to a recent GetResponse survey, these are the worst of the business cliches: synergy, teamwork, touch base, raising the bar and think outside the box.

The winner for most passive aggressive email phrase was “as per my last email,” followed by “just a friendly reminder.”
