Have you ever participated in a workplace debate or gossip? After spending about three hours staring at your Excel spreadsheet, writing formulas and creating graphs, your brain requires a timeout or moment of respite. Using the toilet or taking part in an office small talk may be a good way to relieve the brain of the severity of data manipulation or computation. It is quite common in a shared office facility like workspaces.
We are usually guilty of discussing about the toilet habits of people in a different office as opposed to ours. At times it starts with, ‘The gentleman from the marketing agency next door did a poo and failed to watch his hands.’ This will attract the attention of other colleagues who all needed a break from their screens. This could lead to other personal accounts of unpleasant toilet experiences from other work mates. If this discussion is not properly monitored it could get heated or linger longer than required. The richness of this discussion is highly influenced by the number of toilets available at the workplace. Fewer facilities make the poor toilet habits evident and the offenders more known. Shared office workspaces usually have limited facilities for many users from a variety of companies. We’ll look at some tips in ensuring the toilet etiquette chitchat is kept on track in terms of duration and focus.
