Debrett’s releases guide to revolving door etiquette – could save UK employers millions

After eighty-seven-years of exhaustive research, Debrett’s – the arbiter of good manners in the UK – has finally issued official guidelines for ‘Gentlemanly Conduct in the Operation and Use of Revolving Doors’.

Last year a Confederation of British Industry study found that UK employers were losing up to 8000 man-hours a week, as chivalrous male employees needlessly waited for female colleagues to exit revolving doors.

Government and industry leaders are already hailing its publication as, ‘the most significant business protocol to be issued so far this millennium’.
