You don’t have to like them, but you do have to work with them. Co-workers can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. We spend 8 hours a day with these people, but sometimes they can get on our nerves. There are the obvious annoying traits like constantly showing up late to work, being a slob, getting a little too personal…but there can be little things that make you a bad employee just as much as the big ones.
You might not realize it, but some “harmless” habits can make you look really unprofessional. Being negative all the time, bragging, talking about your personal life too much, or not going to social events can make you an unlikable co-worker.
In a recent survey by Olivet Nazarene University, 2,000 Americans were asked if they got annoyed at work…%100 said yes. Here are the most annoying co-worker habits.
- gossiping and bullying
- bathroom and eating habits
- e-mail and meeting habits
- personal hygene
