Life At The Office
Monday, August 22, 2011 at 10:44
We spend many hours a day in the workplace or within the workplace. This makes the long periods of professional environment we live within a society. As is the case in any society, not everyone in the community is in line with the rest of its members. What is the way to ensure an acceptable life in the work environment?
Work colleagues can be divided into three categories, people whom we share a lot of qualities, people who are neutral, people who we do not get along with.
Dealing with people whom we have a lot in common is easy in general. However, it requires great caution because any bad behavior with that colleague, appreciation, or exaggeration can bring us closer to counterproductive.
Dealing with people who we do not share with any feelings whether good or bad is in fact the easiest thing. There is no specific advice for these people but to avoid turning them into enemies through harassment, even if unintentionally.
Dealing with people who do not value us and hate all our actions is very difficult. Relations in the workplace affect dramatically the productivity of labor. So we should always avoid their negative influence on us. Of course the best way is to stay away from them as much as possible. If it is possible to change the workplace, this is a good thing. Talk less with them and avoid common tasks without reducing respect.
Not every person who does not appreciate us is necessarily an enemy, but these people can descend relationship with them very quickly to the rank of hostility.
From here, to avoid any interaction with them is to ensure not to resort to drastic solutions because of them (Eg leaving work). The most common reason that drive someone to leave his job is the working atmosphere.
The best career paths are within a work environment free of hostility. So always remember you and you alone have control of your environment. Do not make this environment become infected for you alone will pay the price.

Is there life outside the Cubical

Is there life outside the Cubical for those workers inside them? that is the real question. If you are slaving your but t off in the cubical, you have this idea that everyone around you that you can't see is having a grand old time not working, and its just you.
well, i am here to tell you that all your fears are with merit. Its true, you are the only one working.
now that you know, could you please get back to it, the rest of us are playing Angry Birds.

I bet you'll be anger than an angry bird (whatever the heck that is) when your boss fired you for being unproductive and wasting your professional time on Angry Birds.
What do you suppose that program alone costs the productivity of Americans Businesses?
Productivity of American Businesses?

Really? is there any?
From what I read in the paper, over 50% of the US is on some kind of government check, or payroll of some kind.
Is American Business productive?

Let's see... with twitter, Facebook, chat, SMS messages, personal cell phone calls, the water cooler, extra chairs in your cubicle for socializing, white boards for doodling, apps, games, personal problems, I'm not sure where the time for work, fits in the work day.
I often don't make a purchase because I go into a store and notice that all the employees are far too occupied to be interested in helping me with a purchase. Of course, I assume they are occupied with some urgent work matter, but of course, if I get a glimpse of the screen, it is always a Facebook or chat screen.
Better get that other 50% on the government payroll.
customer is king

You raise a good point. years ago I was living in Europe. I would walk into a drug store, and expect to get some attention.
But the people working there, (prior to Facebook, twitter, etc), would be chatting to each other. Now, this was not just a few times, but nearly all the time.
I was running a sales team, and taught them that 'customer was King' in America. The whole story of why America was so good at business, what they could learn, that they way to get promoted was to do 10 hours work for 8 hours pay.
What had happen to America and its spirit?
I can actually feel the difference.
Can it all be blamed on Facebook and the other social media? I would like to hear from people what they think.
I find the work place comfortable than at home

If you ask me I enjoy the company in the Office than stuck up at home. Because I get to see other people. I get easily bored when doing nothing so the ambiance of the office is what I preferred more than anything.
