Things you should never share with a work colleague




Your work environment could also be your social environment. However, there are certain things that you just can't disclose to your co-workers. It's natural to get along well, make good friends and build an amazing rapport with your work colleagues, but you have to set a limit on what to share and what not to share. To make your life easy, we've made a list of things that you should refrain from sharing with your co-workers.


01/ Salary information

Regardless of how close you are to your friend, do not make the mistake of sharing your salary figure. Disclosure of salary information indicates that you aren't capable of keeping professional things confidential and can also lead to unnecessary comparison and complications.

02/ Medical history

No matter how great you get along with your work colleague, keep your health issues your own. A colleague will be understanding of things to a point - post that it will become like a burden they will be carrying for you.

03/ Work complaints

It won’t help if you will continue to complain about your workload, stress levels or the company. It will make you sound like the kind of person who never gets invited to lunch. If you don't agree with the company policies, address it to the concerned people. Don't keep complaining about work to the ones who work along with you doing more or less the same tasks as you.

04/ Intimate details

None of your work colleagues are going to be taking a special interest in your personal life. Don't go ahead and share your intimate personal life details with the people you work. They might just use this information against you some time or the other.

05/ Lifestyle changes & breakups

Okay, you started eating clean, working out and got a new girlfriend. Or you lost track of healthy eating, were a couch-potato throughout the weekend and sulked through the days because you had a breakup. Remember, this is your private life and not meant for your work colleagues to know. They don't care. It's a hard pill to swallow, but they won't care enough.

06/ Negative views of colleagues

If you don't agree with a co-worker's lifestyle, professional abilities, etc. confront that person. If you don't want to do that, don't go around talking negatively about that work colleague to another one. You don't want controversies at your workplace, do you?

07/ Off-color or racially charged comments

Assuming that your co-workers won't be offended if you make a racial joke? Well you're wrong. It's not funny to make racial jokes and don't ever take a risk like that. Even if you know for certain that your colleague wouldn't mind your comment, just don't talk about it at work.
