    Flirty co-worker interfering with everybody's work

    We have a flirty coworker in our office. He is very good with his work and does everything on time but he uses the rest of his time flirting with everybody in the office. It is interfering with the work or other workers. What do we tell him?

    Re: Flirty co-worker interfering with everybody's work

    Hey!
    This kind of work culture is very common these days as guys these days cannot control their flirty side. To curb down the behaviour of your co worker, you should show through your facial expressions that you are not interested in such conduct of behaviour. You should also potray the fact that you are too busy with your work and you prefer not to be disturbed. This should work as an indirect cue for your colleague and if he is sensible enough then he would stop behaving in that way. He would know when to draw the line and also maintain his limits in the office.

    It is commonly noticed that some people do such kind of things to attract the attention of their fellow employees and also to become popular amongst them. These kind of people should be curbed by both your actions and your words. You should narrate incidents of work environmment in your friend's office ( a hypothetical one) where such behaviour was compalined to the manager. This might help to curb down such behaviour.

    The last resort that you have is complain to the manager about such conduct of behaviour. This is a very grave step and should be taken only if things go extremely out of control. You can also try one thing before going to the manager and that is making that co worker read some articles about healthy work environment. This might just influence him and help him overcome this flaw of his. I hope your problem is sorted out at the earliest. All the best. Keep working hard!

    Dear Aspirant,

    The individuality defers from person to person.Somebody is introvert & some one is extrovert.Some is talkative & some talks to the point.

    When you all know that your co-worker is extrovert & talkative & he is disturbing you in discharging your duty,you can say politely not to disturb or you don't take interest in his talk.

    You can also say him to be together in leisure time,if you are interested.

    When he is interfering in your official matter,you ask him not to do so.Also say that if you continue these things,we can report to the management that because of his interference,we are unable to discharge our duty properly.He will realise not to disturb others.

    Thanks.

    Ashok

    Hello, You have asked something which may be apt for many of us .It is and will be a challenge for you to carry your work at the same time tolerate that person.One thing which must be clear to you that what ever may come,you have to be punctual regarding your official work.You cannot let it go at any cost.You have to ignore that person and concentrate on your own work.Or you can talk to him tactfully and make it clear to him that you are not interested in him nor his flitatious nature.If others cooperate with you and make him understand the same,then he will stop doing it.

    HellO
    Well this will diturb the co-workers but on the other hand you cannot ask him to stop talking.
    You have to ignore him in this case.
    If he disturbs you during your work then you can straight forward tell him about that.
    You can also ask him to leave and not to disturb you again.

    Thank you
