Sometimes those humans whose resources you manage don’t exhibit the best etiquette in the workplace.
Careerbuilder.com recently posted a list of offenses it considers some of the worst. We’ve combed through the list and picked our favorite workplace faux pas:
- Speeding in the company parking lot or garage. Hey, we need all our co-workers!
- Making repetitive noises at your cubicle such as chewing gum, tapping your fingers or clicking a pen.
- Monopolizing “available space” in the restroom. It’s not the place to read the newspaper cover to cover.
- Taking the last of an item in the break room.
This one wasn’t on careerbuilder’s list, but it’s one we’d be curious to get your take on: When someone taps away on their PDA, cell phone or laptop at a meeting, is that effective multi-tasking or is it just rude?
And, as always, feel free to add to this list of the worst workplace etiquette via the comments box below.
