    What should I do when office people interfere in personal matters?

    I am a female working with 40 people staff in which 12 are girls and amongst them I am in direct contact with 6 everyday. Apart from the office matters we females do share our personal stuffs. But one of my co-employees takes undue advantage of personal matters and spread rumours about that. What shall be done to stop all this?

    This is not a professional attitude from your coworker.Family matters should not be involved in professional world.However,it is a common problem in most of the firms that coworkers spread rumours against each other.This type of matter should be dealt professionally.First of all,you should remember that the more you react to all these stuffs,the greater enjoyment she will have and the she will continue doing this at a faster pace.You can implement the following steps to control the situation.
    -Don't react much to all theses stuffs.
    -Don't discuss family matters of which she can make an issue.
    -Talk to her regarding this directly with her and also question her why she does all these if it exceeds the limit.
    -If still she continues,have only professional talks with her and no personal talks.
    -Request her to not involve in your personal life.

    Hello

    The people in office or your boss should not discuss your personal matter .

    This is quite absurd.

    You can be very clear about the fact that you do not be a part of such discussion.

    Try to avoid being in the place where such talks are going on.

    Try to be a bit reserved when they speak about your personal life and thy will get the signal that you donot want to discuss or you are being uncomfortable with this.

    If still the things go on then be straight forward and ask them not to discuss this matter .

    And try to avoid talking about your personal life with your colleagues or in office.

    this may lead to rumours and controversies and you might put yourself in trouble.

    Thank you

    hiii,
    well discussing about personal matters at office is no a good idea. you know that it is your fault only, talking about personal issues wirth co-workers is little dangerous too. as she has started spreading rumours about you, you should be alarmed of now what to say at office place. till then you can go and directly talk to her to stop gossiping about you
    thanks

    hello madamAs i can understand that you are not secure in office soecially personal matters or other task.Everyday you visit to employees and share your feelings but i want to suggest you that you should not disclose your personal matter in official environment.You should not frank with co-worker in personal matter.Always be aware that every employee do not take any matter seriously,so dont be try to offer your feelings with others.I can understand that working place is the related job or working not place of sharing personal feeling.You should maintain a decipline at working.thanks
