    Getting disturbed by the singing of co-worker while working

    I am working in a software company where the desks of working are very near to each other. One of my coworker has a habit of singing while doing his work. As a result I get disturbed a lot because of that. How to convey him this problem of mine?

    Re: Getting disturbed by the singing of co-worker while working

    Hello,

    As a software professional you should be ready to accept change. You need to adopt youself in
    different situation. You should not loose your focus while doing your work. If you are having too
    much trouble then politely request your colleague to kindly lower his singing voice so that you can focus
    on your work. Alternatively a good conversation will definately sort out the issue.

    Bye,

    Re: Getting disturbed by the singing of co-worker while working

    Hello...

    Well..As he is a colleague of you (happy that he is not from one of the higher authorities), Take some time personally with him (during lunch hours)...

    Firstly appreciate him that he sings very well...and then come to the matter that it cause disturbance to you sometimes..!!

    Feel free with him and make the above statement in a very casual manner...See to it that, it doesn't hurt him...

    Deal the matter in a very polite way...

    But remember appreciation is the best way to get rid of such problems...

    Hope this will help you...

    Good luck...

    Co- worker want to annoy you.

    So you should take some steps to regret from such type of situations :-

    1] Avoid lingo fanatics

    2] Not to say words like uhm, like, you know. Avoid to say such words

    3] Always celebrating something because co- workers don't want to pressurize on them.

    4] Not to chewing the gum loudly that you put in your mouth.

    5] Speak like a advice sometime and order sometime to Co- workers

    Thank you ....................

    Hello Aspirant,

    Yes,it is true that some people has habit of humming /singing slowly while working or doing something.It gives him/her pleasure mood while disturbs others.Since it is his habit,it is very difficult to stop it.However,nothing is impossible.When there is a problem,there is a solution to it.

    First of all ask your friend not to do humming as it disturbs me.See the result.If there is no positive attitude to it,meet your boss & explain your problem.Request to change either your place or his seat so that both of you could work well.Still,if you don't get relief,put the matter in writing to your boss with a copy to still senior officers/managers/employer.

    Hope you will get relief & work happily.

    Good luck.

    office is not the place you sing and dance being a software professional people should know how to behave its very important that a employee should always maintain discipline always at office time.. singing is the worst thing an employee does at office hours this is totally unaccepted because this shows how sincere and serious your co employee is during office timings. one should know about their habits that cause a problem to others.. i think you directly report your colleague about the singing activity, tell that its very disturbing be frank no matter what your co-worker thinks....

    Hello,

    Your colleague is having the habit of singing while he is working.Maybe he does is unconsciously or consciously.Now if you are getting disturbed at your work due to this,then you have to speak up.Otherwise your work output will be hampered which might affect your job.I can understand that you are bit hesitating think what to say to your colleague.I wont suggest you to go to this man shouting and asking him to stop singing.Rather I will suggest you to go to him and talk politely stating that while singing if he lowers his voice then it will be helpful for you to do your job peacefully .I think if you convince him in this way then he wont take it personal and will cooperate with you.

    Adjustment and adaptability to different types of situation is the key to success in the professional world.In the professional sector,every individual has to deal with various sorts of situations and needs to get adjusted to them properly to face any sort of challenges in the future.

    This is a problem which is now in its infant stage but can turn into a big problem in the future.This is because it can hamper your work as well as your performance to a great extent which in turn will be reflected in your career as well.So it will be better to sort out this as soon as possible.

    First of all,you should try to solve this matter at your personal level.Try not to get deviated by his singing.You should have got used to his singing and this should divert your concentration from work.Try to focus at your work rather than paying any heed to his singing because the more you give the more he may continue his singing and the more you may get disturb.

    But if you still face trouble in concentrating at your work,then it is better to speak to him regarding this issue.Tell him in a friendly manner appreciating his singing skills but highlight the disturbance created by it in the office premises.Tell him how you are getting disturbed and how it is affecting your work and performance.Request him to cooperate with you and try to reduce his habit of singing during working hours.

    It is hoped that he will understand and will definitely cooperate with you.If he does not and keeps on repeating the same habit,it will be better to catch the eye of the higher authority regarding this matter and request them to interfere in this matter by stating the problems you are facing.

    Re: Getting disturbed by the singing of co-worker while working

    Hi aspirant

    You should definitely do something in this regard as this is not good for you and your performance. If you are constantly being disturbed then your performance will surely go down and then you will be lagging behind the other employees. Also your boss may not like this. So its better that you talk to your co-worker who has a habit of singing while working and tell him the problem you are facing.

    Tell him politely that you have noticed that he sings while working. As the working desks of the employees are very close to each other you get disturbed quite frequently and hence are not able to concentrate on your work. You request him not to sing during the working hours so that your work performance is not affected . You hope that he won't mind and will try to understand the rationality in your point.

    I am sure he will understand your point and will not sing during the working hours. But if he does not improve his ways you should go and complain to your boss. Good luck

    Re: Getting disturbed by the singing of co-worker while working

    hey,
    To work in such a distracting environment is a really difficult task. You can politely ask your colleague to lower down their tone or to stop singing so that it doesnot disturb you. Its been said that you should adapt to every kind of environment, but if its becoming unbearable you should definitely take some actions against this as it is hampering your own concentration and then apparently your performance. You should not compromise with them at any cost. so its better to let your colleague know that they are unintentionally disturbing you. take care

    Re: Getting disturbed by the singing of co-worker while working

    Dear if you are getting disturbed from that person because of singing then you must talk to him on this matter because this one can take your performance down in the company when you are being disturbed from him that is why you do not need to say anything and directly mention your problem that dear please will you stop singing while working because I am a lot of disturbed from your this habit and I am really unable to work because of your singing that is why please just stop while working and if you need then you may sing during lunch or after the office hours but presently just let me do my work concentratively

    If he does not understand and keep his singing continue then you must go to your boss and request them to change your desk or computer and when they ask you reason then you should mention your problem then your boss either will change your desk or his and may be that your boss talk to that employee about his habit while working and may make to understand him on this issue

    All the best

    You should not loose such an opportunity when it is coming to you.

    If you refuse this kind of chance then in future when you will want such thing you may not get ad will have regret this one.

    You must be motivated and happy for this rather than discourage yourself to become just a team member.

    Leadership for the tour will provide you more confidence in yourself.

    Leadership is what every one wants and you want to let go this opportunity.
