(pronounced bih-HOOV)

People who use this word sound so cultivated. Plus, it’s fun to say because you get to pucker up your lips like you’re just about to give someone a kiss. But what does it mean, you ask. To be advantageous, valuable, helpful, or appropriate.

Example: Though Carla was not looking forward to attending the 4-hour Revit seminar, she knew that it would behoove her to take the personal time off of work, especially since she was thinking of changing firms and knowledge BIM was required.
