Graduates should prepare for work disharmony

Published: Wednesday, 15 August 2007   Category: Life after graduation

Graduate job seekers may find that starting a new job may be more difficult than anticipated - because they dislike their co-workers.

A poll conducted by jobs2view.com has revealed that up to 12 million disgruntled workers cannot stand to be around the colleagues.

Almost a quarter of workers have moved seats to avoid their fellow employees and a further 31 per cent have actually quit their job to escape the people that they work with.

The biggest factor in the breakdown of office relations is laziness with 46 per cent claiming not to like their colleagues because they were too idle.

Surprised at the findings, Jon Glas at jobs2view.com said: 'These results are alarming. So many people are unhappy at work because of someone they work with.

He added: 'We spend so much time at work and with these colleagues, it can be difficult if you don't get on.'

According to the research 59 per cent of people dislike their fellow employees so much that they refuse to socialise with them outside work.ADNFCR-1068-ID-18246460-ADNFCR
