It happens all the time, one person in the office learns some gossip about another person and it spreads like wildfire. Pretty soon this individual is left hurt, embarrassed, upset, and frustrated with their job. There are a number of reasons that cause workplace unity to breakdown. This article will review some of the common things that cause workplace relationships to breakdown and how your office can avoid them.
One reason why a lot of co-workers don't get along is because of their personal relationships. Positive home lives can boost employee morale and helps them to become more productive. When they have a breakdown in their home relationships like divorce, death, arguments, etc., they tend to bring these to work and they will unload them on their co-workers. If you have an employee that comes in with a sour attitude or constantly complains about their home life, talk to them about their behavior. Let them know that they are dragging down the employee morale at the office and they either need to seek counseling or they need to look for a new job.
