Getting to know your work colleagues

Posted on March 27, 2018 at 10:49 am

It is a fact that many of us spend more time with our work colleagues than we do at home with our families. With a full time job you may be out of the house over 8 hours a day and much of this time is spent working with other people at your place of work.

Getting along with fellow members of staff is important for a number of reasons. For your own mental health and social development, you need to be able to interact with people you work with. You may not necessarily feel like you want to be close friends and may not chose to spend time with them outside of work, but it is important than when in work you take some times to get to know them and allow them to get to know you. People who do not get on with their work colleagues often struggle with job satisfaction and find that it can affect all areas of their work. They often become less productive and less willing to go the extra mile for the business such as working late.

If you are struggling to get along with your co-workers than think about how you can improve your working situation of if you feel you cannot, if it may be possible to change your working hours or even the department you work in to allow you to work with other people.
