What can not be done at work
The American careerbuilder.com portal has formulated “nine office precepts,” a daily newspaper writes 15 minutes.
Do not steal This biblical commandment is especially relevant for an office worker. How often do we forget about the fact that printer paper, disks, pads and pens on the desktop are the property of the company. Today, the habit of taking home everything that proves to be “badly lying” is not considered to be something out of range. Unfortunately, few people realize that this is a banal theft. And if the bosses catch you by this occupation, layoffs will not be far off.
Do not blame others for their mistakes. It’s dishonest, stupid, and just childish. It is very unpleasant to confess that your mistakes have affected the quality of the overall work. But where it’s more unpleasant to admit that you have lied and denigrated the other in order not to admit your mistakes.
Do not gossip Hear a gossip – do not distribute it further. Who knows, suddenly the gossip object decides to find out where the wind blows, and will come out on you? Explain later that you are not here, but the secretary of the general is guilty, who told something to the manager in your department.
Do not pretend to be sick. If fatigue and depression overtake you, take a vacation or vacation at your own expense. The ruin can only hurt. If you, by saying “the worst man in the world”, face a colleague or boss in a store, do not count on the fact that your sudden healing will please someone. Perhaps your work in the company on this and will end.
Do not go to work if sick. The excess of official zeal is also punished, as is his disadvantage. If you really get sick, then infect co-workers – not the best way to win their respect. Take the hospital and sit at home. Your feat will not be appreciated by anyone, and it is simpler to bury firewood in a fever.
Do not use office equipment for personal use. It is not necessary to discuss the tactics of “peacekeepers” in the Caucasus by telephone in working hours in all the details, to print a full collection of the Beggdeer on the office printer or, using the “ball” internet, to “fill” in the library with dozens of gigabytes of photos. Remember that the patience of the bosses is beyond bounds. The punishment can be severe – from retaliation to dismissal.
Do not discuss personal problems. If something in your private life interferes with work, this is a reason for holidays, leave or even dismissal on their own. In any case, it is not necessary to “cry in a vest” colleagues. Not only that, it’s an unprofessional approach to the question, it will not help a lot either. If the career continues in the same firm, the reputation of the niche and the neurotic is no longer to be washed away.
Do not dress carelessly. It does not matter how many years you worked in the company, how much your “barefoot” chief, how many hours you slept last night, and how hot it is in the street. Clothes should always be clean, flawless and appropriate to the overall office style.
Do not flirting Before you rush your head with the head of a service romance, ask yourself how the company relates to similar situations. Think about whether you are ready to be fired if no flirtation is accepted. And, most importantly, can you continue to work side-by-the-side with your ex-lover if the relationship is disrupted. If you are going to start a romance with a subordinate, all accusations of sexual harassment can be added to all the minuses. Someone will say that we are not in America, but, nevertheless, there is a risk.
