Graduates advised against bad workplace practice

Transport and utilities
Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in the transport and utilities sector may want to heed the advice stemming from Randstad's workplace survey into the most annoying workplace habits.
If a graduate is placed in a new job it is essential to make the right impression in the first few months of employment but should they regularly commit any of the most common faux pas they could find themselves out of work.
The survey showed that 43 per cent of people said workers with poor time management skills were annoying, 36 per cent thought gossips were the worst and 25 per cent claimed that those who leave a mess in communal spaces were unpleasant to work with.
Eileen Habelow, senior vice president of organisational development for Randstad, said: "Employees are looking for ways to increase their value at work, so it would only make sense they would be a bit bothered by co-workers who they believe are having an impact on their rime, and possibly company productivity."
