Are you polite…in Japan? [infographic]

Being polite might seem easy: Someone does something nice, you say “thank you,” right? As it turns out, that all depends on your location. Manners are different all over the world. So doing business—especially providing customer service—in a world brought closer together by technology can be a daunting task.

One thing is sure: you need to treat people with respect. We hope our latest infographic will allow you to do just that, by helping you navigate the world of global manners.

But be warned, even within many countries, manners will differ from region to region, neighborhood to neighborhood, and person to person. Always do plenty of research when traveling abroad or interacting with customers in countries outside of your own.
