If you’ve ever worked in an office environment, then it’s almost certain you’ve had to deal with an annoying coworker.
I’ve heard so many horror stories over the years! The cubicle mate who not only takes cat naps, but snores. The coworker who clears their throat loud enough for the entire office to hear it. The person who dresses for work like they’re going out on a date. The list goes on!
But as documented in this recent Business Insider “Ask The Insider” column, there are five common workplace behaviors that lead to more complaints than any others.
You should definitely check out this list, because you might be surprised to find out even you are guilty of one or two of them!
- Coming to work sick.
- Being loud.
- Grooming at your desk.
- Imposing smells (they’re talking to YOU perfume wearers and leftover heater-uppers!)
- Talking about yourself.
You should definitely read the whole article for insight into each of these behaviors.
But even more importantly, if you’re guilty of any of doing any of these, stop now – it’s intangible things like this that can keep you from getting your next promotion, job or opportunity!
