 The bad habits that are killing your reputation at work


Being late constantly – That goes for getting into work and for meetings. Its unprofessional, looks like you don’t care and it says that your time is more important than anyone else’s that you work with. Sometimes you just can’t help it but consistent lateness says there’s something rather selfish and lazy about you.


If you’ve been working really late in to the evening and that’s why you’ve gone in late to work make sure people know about it so they don’t think you’ve just over slept!


Being the office gossip – It can be really difficult not to gossip at work especially when you’ve just found out the boss is having an affair with an intern, you’ll find you will make lots of friends around the water cooler but soon they will start listening to you but not talking to you anymore as they’ll be afraid as soon as their back is turned you’ll be talking about them too – and they’re probably right! Don’t betray confidences at work, a colleague might just need to vent but by saying something you might affect their career. You might need to vent at some point too and won’t want people gossiping about you.


Sucking up – no one likes a kiss ass. Its creepy, it’s obvious and it won’t make you any friends. Don’t humiliate or degrade yourself. Prove your worth by the quality of your work.


Sleeping with your colleagues – however subtle you think you’re being, everyone knows! Lots of people do get into relationships with their colleagues but you don’t want to be thought of as the office bike!
