GENDER IN THE WORKPLACE: HOW TO BEHAVE IN A COED ENVIRONMENT

Four People Touching Hands

“Mind your manners.”


manners people

When you are working in an office space or any other workplace, you should be cautious of how you communicate with your fellow employees. Especially if the employees are of the opposite gender. And if you are male, you should really watch yourself because it is so easy to find yourself in trouble when harmless fun goes too far. So be mindful of how you behave so you don’t find yourself in the middle of a human resource nightmare. So, what are some things you might want to watch out for as you move your way through the daily workplace?

touchy feely

I have come into the workplace and given people hugs. Then you think to yourself, could this be something that comes up later on, on the job. It’s sad to say this, but in our time period today, you have to be careful that you don’t lose your job or more, go to jail. But why, why should I risk going to jail? And the reason being is that you never know people’s threshold for comfort. Now, mot people get to know you, and then they are more comfortable to hug. But even people who know each other can sometimes make each other feel uncomfortable.

watch your words

When you are talking to someone in the workplace, make sure you know that you might get to know people quite intimately, but it’s still work. And the things you say, even to your coworkers off the clock is still part of the job. So you have a conversation about sex off the the job, but you’re in a sensitive space because you still see this person. And you might say something that could trigger them to not want to work with you anymore. Now you’re stuck because you need your job. So adhere to the things you say.

dating is a no no

These are the people you tend to be around a lot so it comes as no surprise relationships start. But if you want my advice, don’t do it. You should not be dating people who work alongside. It can cause problems if the date becomes something that shouldn’t have happened. Imagine dating someone you work with and have to see them everyday after a breakup. The professional environment can prove to be place of conflict.
