HINT: If a hygiene issue is brought to your attention, it is best to first release a company memo reminding all employees that there are certain expectations in the workplace regarding personal hygiene. This will help to prevent an employee from being or feeling singled out or lead to bullying. As an alternative, hygiene awareness posters can also help ease any awkwardness.
