    What is the best way to shut down office gossip to improve office environment?

    I work in a small company and therefore gossip spreads very fast and we often end up hearing things we are not supposed to know. What are the easy ways to put a damper on office gossip and hence improve the office environment?

    Hello,

    First and foremost thing is to install CCTV cameras.CCTV cameras are a threat to all,as it records everything.It will record that employees are gossiping rather than working in their own desk.If these cameras are installed properly at every corners then it will work like magic.BUt it has to be ensured that these cameras work properly and monitored by efficient people.Otherwise it wont be of much help.Secondly,try to maintain a professional attitude at office.There is no need of much transperancy between you and others.When ever you become too frank with anyone at office,you are to face gossips about others.

    Hi friend

    Such things are not new at all and thus keep on happening in almost all the small companies.So you should try to not to listen to such gossip and thus waste your time on it. As you can't stop it you should find ways so that it doesn't reach you and so are able to concentrate more your work than thus lame things. Thus the best thing for you would be to ignore such gossip and try to close your ears to it. If you make it a habit to engross yourself in your work and then I am sure you can ignore such gossip which is affecting your professional life so badly.

    You should remain engrossed in your work so much that such gossip doesn't reach you at all and thus you are not affected by it at all. Then this will improve the environment for you and thus you will be able to do your work with more concentration and more heart into it.

    Another way to deal with such gossip is to change your place in your office where you are isolated from other employees and thus you don't get to hear any of such gossip from them. Thus you can request your manager to change your place and also tell him the reason for the same. I am sure he will definitely help you out as this will also benefit his company if the employees can concentrate more on their work.

    Also you can engross yourselves in other activities like listening to light music while working and only talking to your friends and thus avoid talking unnecessarily to any and everyone. In this way you can definitely avoid hearing such gossip and I am sure you will be able to see a drastic change in your performance level and also that your office environment will certainly become better for you and thus you will love working there more than before.

    Good luck and Thanks

    Hello ,
    Gossip in the office environment results in deirect decrease in performance of the employees .
    As its very engrossing , everyone wants to join it and distracts the people and thus cannot focus on their tasks .
    Measures that can be taken to avoid heavy gossip can be ::


    • Giving new tasks to the employees with deadlines o that performance is not compromised .
    • Give them warnings and slightly increase the work presssure .


    • Explain the importance of a good working environment and tell them you are creating a bad image
    infront of the managament .
    • Train the employee and increase professionalism so that such things does not creep in .
    • Change the places of few people who are into a usual behavior in the company .


    • Give proper facilities to the employee so that they can get some break-time and have some leisure time .
    • Take some rounds / checking of the working place to check upon the employees .
    • CCTV's can be a strict way to monitor each employee .
