Workplace gossip

Workplace gossip

  • 맛집영어 영어수강 영어교재 이미지
  • We are all prone to complaining about the boss’ decisions, difficult co-workers or speculating on who will get promoted next. We all know that talking about others behind their back is not a good thing. It can turn a healthy workplace environment into a toxic environment. It can ruin professional and personal relationships, get people fired, or drive good employees away. On the other hand, sharing good news about others can be a good thing. When it is positive, such as an announced pregnancy, a new project or promotion, such news can booster company morale, foster relationships, and build teamwork.
