You might have heard that emoticons aren’t so professional for workplace communication. That might still be true in some industries, but more and more smiley faces are entering work messages - and the science shows that no one really seems to mind.
Studies on workplace communication show that when specific, negative feedback from a superior comes with positive emoticons, employees are more likely to feel good about the message and more likely to make the changes asked of them. It’s worth noting that using disliking, or negative, emoticons had the opposite effect in some cases.
Researchers have long known about the negativity effect in message, which is the phenomenon that a recipient is likely to perceive an message as more negative than the message sender intended. Since we don’t get the chance to share facial expressions and other nonverbal cues in our messages, they can sometimes be tougher to interpret. But emoticons might be able to help.
When they were questioned about what they read, the results showed that emoticons reduced the negativity effect in the business-related messages - the same message sounded less negative when paired with a positive (smiley) emoticon.
The study added that emoticons are “not just enjoyable to use, but also a valuable addition to communication methods.”
