For many millions of people all around the world, offices are at the centre of their working lives.
From journalists to engineers, recruiters to charity workers, offices provide a place of work for people in every possible industry.
However, for some, the world of office work can seem pretty alien. If you have just left school, university or have simply worked outdoors a lot, you might find the transition rather strange.
Many office jobs run on 9 to 5 shifts, something which many people find difficult to adjust to, especially if they haven’t experienced it in the past.
Just take a look at this post from The Penny Hoarder which discusses this problem of adjustment in more detail.
Another issue people struggle with when starting work in an office for the first time is the unwritten rules which exist.
Offices, over the years, have developed a type of etiquette that all good employees largely abide by. While you won’t find them in any job contract, you will find that disobeying some could land you in a fair bit of bother.
Thankfully, Silverdoor has created a helpful infographic to give those more inexperienced people a heads up. It’s called ‘The Ultimate Guide To Office Etiquette For First Time Employees’ and you can take a look below.
It covers a great range of tips some much more serious than others. For example, at the more serious end of the spectrum, it discusses how to be mindful on social media and the content you post, both at work and at home.
At the other end of the spectrum it explains why it’s not a great idea to bring smelly food into the office!
