5 Things You Should Not Share In Office

  1. 1. By – Rashi Gupta
  2. 2. <ul><li>8 hours a day and 5 days a week, office has become second home for most of us. </li></ul><ul><li>In that context we also end up having best buddies at office. </li></ul><ul><li>We are often so attached to office and office colleagues in our lives that we end up discussing almost everything under the sun with them. </li></ul><ul><li>But how many of us have thought, what is healthy to share with them? Though there are your best trusted friends in office, there is always a line which needs to be drawn between you and your colleague.  </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>One of the very primary things to start with, is your salary. </li></ul><ul><li>Guarding your salary details is in one way, keeping your company's trust as most companies do not like their employees discussing their salaries. </li></ul><ul><li>What you earn should always remain between you and your HR Manager. </li></ul><ul><li>Also knowing each other's salary will only end up in doubts and discomforts about your company and work as you may feel that the company is biased or partial.  </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>When you are burdened with loads of work, out of frustration you might burst out your problems to your colleague. But doing so might jeopardize your career. </li></ul><ul><li>Constant cribbing about the workload would only brand you as an inefficient worker and portrays you as a person who cannot work under pressure. </li></ul><ul><li>Workload is something that you cannot avoid in a workplace, when you know something like that is coming, be smart and finish the work as best as you can. It is all about planning.  </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>You hate your boss? Zip it up within yourself and never share it with your friends at office. </li></ul><ul><li>You don't get along with your boss - so what? There are hundreds of employees in the world like you. Your colleagues will brand you as a difficult person and will put you into a sticky situation. </li></ul><ul><li>You have various reasons for not getting along with your boss, but it might not be the same for your colleagues. In fact, they might have a very good rapport with your boss and they may be in his good books.  </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>In a workplace, everyone have some kind of disagreement or argument with someone or the other. In a way you end up not liking that person as well. </li></ul><ul><li>But we still have to maintain a cordial relation and certain decorum in office. </li></ul><ul><li>If you don't get along with certain colleagues avoid them but don't discuss their lives, wardrobe or professional abilities with others.  </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>This is a very important rule in the black book. Discussing your breakups, divorce, difficult in-laws, missing maids, are not information to be shared with colleagues over lunch or cried over their shoulders. </li></ul><ul><li>Also speaking about boy/girl who interests you in office will show that you are not concentrating on your work and your focus is shifting. </li></ul><ul><li>Knowing your personal stuff, your colleagues might make a fool out of you and also might take advantage of it at times. </li></ul><ul><li>In an office environment, one is expected to share a professional relationship with all.  </li></ul>
