Importance Of Receptionist.. CiteHR

mandy007 Started The Discussion:

Receptionist is considered the face and voice of the company.The company's reputation is at stake when the receptionist is inefficient and poor at communication skills.Whenever any candidate comes for interview they ask him -What's your good name? .In Hindi it is a way of saying "Apka Shubh Naam kya hain?" It is acceptable in Hindi but certainly not in English. What kind of question is this. All names are good by the way. There is nothing like bad name. Please stop asking such stupid questions.It is humiliating to people who have studied in a English Medium School.

Hi Mandy !!

What you are suggesting is absolutely right ! ,,, the question "what is your good name?" is a funny question rather than humiliating. I come across many people who ask this questions, I dont get offended or humiliated ! if I know them informally I correct them by a pinch of humor.

Not many people are lucky to have educated themselves in English Medium Schools ! or has exposure to such Accurate English Talking Environments. Due to recent Globalization in India, exposure to English is increasing. So "Educated English-Medium Graduates" may take a little effort to inform our brother and sisters of such mannerisms or correct thier mistakes on interaction. after all none is born perfect even the "Educated English Medium Schools Graduates"
