What Is the Worst Corporate Jargon You've Heard?

These make me a bit snarky!

    1. Reach out

    As in 'I wanted to reach out to ..." - please, just no!

    2. Best

    People signing emails 'Best'. Supposed to be shorthand for 'best wishes'. Too busy to type the second word?

    3. Push the envelope

    In my literal world I just see people pushing envelopes across a table.

    4. 110%

    I've never liked this. 100% already means giving all you've got.

    5. Takeaways

    You're sitting in a meeting and at the end the boss asks what are your takeaways from this session? Clearly not Chinese!

    6. You're a star!

    This always sounds very patronising. Cringe worthy!

    7. Value add

    Surely value add-ed? It sounds grammatically incorrect.

    8. Crushing it

    Oo, I could crush a grape.

    9. I hope you're well

    Starting emails with 'I hope you're well'. It must be the most used phrase in business email.
