Working in an office space can sometimes be demanding and daunting, especially when you are working with your coworkers. There are a lot of things that you need to adjust not just to you, but also with the office space that you are working in.
If you are a kind of people who are observant enough with the other people, you will definitely notice that there are a lot of different people with different personalities that you might be working with. That is why there are also a lot of things to know more about and adjust depending on the situation in the office that you are in.
In an office, there are rules and/or policies for the employees and employers to follow. Now here are some of the things that you should do as a responsible individual to avoid problems that might occur later on.
Don’t discuss things out loud
One of the things that we tend to be annoyed is that your workmates are discussing their plans or suggestions loudly where everybody can almost hear it. Even if you are talking about work-related topics, you also have to be considerate for as not to disturb other employees who are also working silently.
There are also times when your ideas clash, and there might be some heated arguments within the discussion, try to make your voice lower enough for you and the other employee can hear you. Do not be carried away by your emotion that leads you to be excited or in rage that makes you discuss things out loud. Just be moderate in your voice.
Keep your cell phone in a silent mode
A cell phone is a necessity in our daily life. We need it to communicate with our loved ones but using cell phones while working hours is a big no. You should not text your loved ones in the middle of your working hours unless it is an emergency.
Entertaining calls that are not that important can disturb you from your work. You have to be disciplined when it comes to picking and entertaining phone calls. Emergencies are rare to occur, so it is not an excuse to text your loved ones just for the sake of texting. It is entirely a big no.
Ladies and gents who are a fan or into using perfume, make sure that is not strong enough. There are just times that strong perfume lingers longer in the office than those perfumes that are not. Even if you like the smell of your perfume though it may be strong, there are employees and/or employers who hate your perfume. So, you also have to be considerate of the others.
If you really want to make yourself smell good, you can have a light scented perfumes that are not strong and pleasant to the nose. There are also a lot of scents that you can choose from for you to buy it. When you choose the right perfume, there might be possibilities that your workmates will also love that they have just smelled.
Spending almost an hour talking with coworkers
In every company that you are working, there will always be a time for you to take a break from long hours of work. There you can have a cup of coffee, a snack, or anything that you want to do for as long as you can stay relaxed and be ready for the next working hours.
There are just some employees who go beyond the said and/or allotted time for the break, the chit-chat for almost an hour forgetting that they have still work to do. It is also a big no to do when you are in the office. Practice time management for you to make your work done at the right time.
There are actually a lot of things that you must avoid when you are working in an office space with the other employees. Discipline is one of the keywords for you to be guided by the things that you need to do when you are in the office. Common sense will also teach you that what you do is already not applicable inside.
