Rude co-worker at office can affect your sleep, says study
If you’re unable to sleep properly, blame your co-worker who is rude, uses sarcastic comments and demeaning language. Here’s how you can detach yourself.
A recent study has found out that if a co-worker is rude to you in your office, it can affect your sleep.
The study says that when a person experiences rude, discourteous, impolite colleagues at the workplace, they tend to ruminate more about work at home.
So, if you’re unable to sleep properly, blame your co-worker who is rude, uses sarcastic comments and demeaning language, said the researchers.
Affecting your partner’s sleep
According to the study conducted by Portland State University, United States, the workplace incivilities can not only affect an employee’s sleep but also their partner’s.
This also affects the spouse or partner, only when the couple works in the same company or occupation because work-linked couples have a better idea of what’s going on in each other’s work, they can be better supporters.
Can’t avoid these incivilities in office
According to the study, while organizations do everything in their power to create a culture of civility by imposing zero-tolerance policies or offering civility training, incivilities at the workplace are not completely avoidable.
