Millions hate work colleagues
The workplace might not always be the home of happy families according to research revealing that as many as 12 million workers in the UK have strong negative feelings toward their co-workers.

A poll conducted by jobs2view.com found that 40 per cent do not get on with at least one fellow employee while nearly one in ten admitted to disliking the person they sit next to at work.

Meanwhile almost a third (31 per cent) stated that office hatred had actually led them to quit their jobs. On a slightly less dramatic note, almost a quarter (23 per cent) had found an excuse to move seats.

In addition, a fifth of respondents admitted to not liking their boss.

Key reasons for disliking colleagues include laziness, excessive chat and cliquey behaviour, whereby workers feel excluded from particular friendship groups. Moreover, over half dislike co-workers for being hot and cold regarding friendliness: being amiable at times and ignoring them at others.

A recent poll found that more than half of all UK bosses have a crush on a staff member while nearly a third act on their impulses.
