More than 75 percent of workers admit to using emojis in professional communications, according to a Cotap Inc. survey. I have mixed feelings about that.
There is no shortage of industry experts who will tell you emojis are here to stay and we should get used to them. Again, I have mixed feelings. Before I am labeled a spoilsport, allow me to explain. I have no real problem with emojis; I use them myself. I just haven’t been convinced of their usefulness at work.
Allow me to explain further by knocking down the classic pro-emoji-in-the-workplace arguments:
“Millennials use emojis in daily communications, and we must adapt to the new normal.”
