According to a new survey out of the UK conducted by TotalJobs.com, 62% of people have what they consider to be an enemy at work. 1 in 3 of those people say they have lost sleep over it. 70% of the people with an enemy would consider changing jobs over it. The researchers gathered their data from 7,000 employees.
I wonder if this includes the aircon.
Our work enemies are usually the same age as us or older . . . the same gender as us . . . and someone we interact with on a daily basis.
Oh . . . and 28% say their enemy is their BOSS.
So what makes someone an enemy? The top five reasons are: They lie to make themselves look good . . . they criticize other people . . . they always interrupt . . . they're passive-aggressive . . . and they're dismissive.
