30 Ways You’re Annoying Your Colleagues [Infographic]

A few weeks ago, we published an infographic naming and shaming the 10 most annoying colleagues you’ll find in most offices – click here if you missed it.

But it occurred to me at the time that we all must have at least one thing, one bad habit, that winds up our co-workers – right?

So today, I’m revealing the 30 most annoying things (based on the number of complaints I’ve seen) you could be doing to drive your colleagues mad…

30 Ways You're Annoying Your Colleagues

Are you guilty?

Well, the professionals of the UK have spoken – they’re a judgemental lot, aren’t they?

Ok, hands up. I may have done a couple (or a few) of the things on this list at some point (every day) or other… surely everyone has?!

So maybe next time you’re feeling disgruntled with the sniffer or peeved about “the air conditioning situation” perhaps you should take a moment to consider what YOU could be doing to irritate your colleagues? There’s probably something.

  • And “space invasion” can be seen as intimidating and inappropriate.

Just try to make sure you stay on the right side of that line.

OK, that’s the serious bit over with!
