Email sign-offs: What your email sign-off is really saying when you write "Regards"
Here’s what your email sign-off is really saying when you write "Regards"
Communication experts Suzanne Bates, President and CEO of Bates Communications, Inc. and author of Speak Like a CEO: Secrets For Commanding Attention and Getting Results, and Cherie Kerr, founder of ExecuProv and author of The Bliss or "Diss" Connection? Email Etiquette For The Business Professional, give their expert insights into this aspect of email correspondence.
Sign-off - "Regards"
Bates: It's less friendly than "Kind regards," and can be a bit perfunctory, but it generally works well.
Kerr: This salutation is a little short and a little distant, but at least it's a closing message.
