Job performance is highly depends on how you interact with other employees, supervisors and customers and clients. Job behavior is critical for career success. Employees that get along well with co-workers, are outgoing and willing to tackle projects tend to be noticed by their superiors. Desired job behavior that fits corporate standards can lead to promotions and raises. On the other hand, undesirable behaviors may lead to disciplinary actions and even terminations.
Unfortunately, disrespect for one's co-workers (or subordinates) isn't that uncommon. And it often causes people to leave their jobs. For employers this means losing good people, and then having to hire and train new ones. For co-workers it means having to get used to working with new people, and picking up the slack until new employees can be found. The saddest part of the lack of respect in the workplace is that many people don't realize they are being disrespectful. They aren't trying to hurt someone's feelings. They just aren't trying to not do that.
Let's take a look now at few actions that may offend your co-workers,
• Showing up late for meetings
• Having loud telephone conversations
• Neglecting to say please and thank you
• Talking behind someone's back
• Blaming someone else when you are at fault
