Business etiquette in Zimbabwe

Hello everybody,

As you know, professional habits may differ from one country to another. In order to help newly arrived expats better understand their new professional environment in Zimbabwe, we warmly encourage you to share information and insights about the do’s and don’ts in the workplace.

For instance, are there office manners? How do you greet your co-workers? Do you greet your management differently? Is there a dress code? Particular rules to observe? Maybe a professional body language?

On another level, what is key for a successful professional meeting? Are there any steps to follow? How do you a start a negotiation?

In other words, what are the most important things to know for a successful professional integration in Zimbabwe?

Thank you in advance for sharing your experience!


Good  day  ? I dont think  there is  much difference  in office management  protocols in Zimbabwe and other English speaking countries.As an investor  i will urge you to visit the  country  and find out  more information  or make a joint venture  with other local pple

Wherever you go, for whatever reason, to whomever you may speak, always start with "Goodmorning/day/evening, how are you?". There's no business  without this intro! Coming from Europe, it took me a while to get used of this 'waste of time'...
