It starts at the beginning of the day. Idle chatter amongst co-workers around the coffee machine discussing the fact that someone’s cleaner just quit and their husband has guests coming for the weekend.
Venting personal problems in the workplace is nothing new, but how does this seemingly small issue filter into and affect your employees working day?
Everyone has ‘outside noise’ in their peripheral hearing while they are at work, that small voice saying things like:“I should really sort that gardener out while I can during business hours” or “I wonder if Mary in HR knows who I could contact about a swim teacher for my son” or “I’ll just quickly search online for a new pair of shoes to match my dress for this weekends gala dinner”.
We are not saying that your employees don’t have a right to socialise or discuss non-work matters, as this does play a massive part in team bonding and cohesiveness. Work would be completely boring if there was no chatter, right?
The main issue is when these tasks become so distracting that they affect your employees ability to actually do their job properly. This outside noise can be a cause of unwanted anxiety for both your employees and you as their employer.
You want to ensure that your employees are fully focused at work and are not unnecessarily anxious about things happening at home.
