Employees Say Office Gossip is the Biggest Workplace Etiquette Issue
A new survey found that employees and managers disagree on the most common breach of workplace etiquette.
Managers and workers alike were asked the question: "Which one of the following is the most common breach of workplace etiquette committed by your staff/coworkers?" The leading answer for managers was people being distracted/on their phones during meetings (27%), but the number one answer for workers was office gossip (28%). For managers, office gossip tied for second place with not responding to calls/emails in a timely manner (18%). For workers, not responding to calls/emails came in second (21%), with being distracted/on the phone during meetings coming in third (16%).
I've had quite a few jobs so far in my lifetime, and I'd have to say office gossip is the most ANNOYING thing there is. I also hate when people in the office steal food. In what world is it ok to take someone else's food and eat it?!
