These results challenge assumptions that smelling just isn’t something people are good at.

Samansky: Eliminate emojis from all company correspondence

Tech News Keywords: , , ,

By Arthur W. Samansky We’ve recently had World Emoji Day, an Emoji Movie, and, from time-to-time, media coverage around rollouts of new emojis. We even have animated emojis on a new smartphone model. They are ubiquitous. For that reason, in-house lawyers and external legal counsel should urge development of company rules to prohibit these pictures in workplace-related activities. Emojis, and their emoticon cousins – despite all the reasons for their popularity – should have no place in business communications in the global and culturally diverse environment.
