You’ve heard the saying “Your coworkers become like your family.” The upshot: camaraderie, unshakable trust and friendships that will last a lifetime. However, beware that your nurse team goes from being “like family” to just being unprofessional. Letting your hair down a bit too much in the workplace is never a good idea. Here are 10 things to stop doing in the workplace.
1. Stop gossiping about each other at work.
Gossiping can be fun when it’s done all in jest. But when you’re gossiping about a coworker’s love life, job performance, etc, it’s unprofessional and just plain hurtful. Remember, the one gossiping WITH you may also be gossiping ABOUT you.
