Tips For Managing Employees Who Irritate Others

Working in close quarters and spending a majority of waking hours together can lead to friction among your employees. Even the most sophisticated and well-meaning people can bring quirky behaviors to the workplace. Eliminate productivity-deflating problems by setting expectations for civility and intervening to deal with these common irritations. Talking about Coworkers: A gossipy employee can easily start rumors, presumably based on a tiny bit of truthful information but misrepresenting a coworker. Suppositions supplant productive conversations. Unchecked gossip becomes destructive. Ignoring Work-Related Problems: An overly optimistic, proud employee glosses over problems or pretends they don't exist.
