Work behavior is the behavior one uses in employment and is normally more formal than other types of human behavior. This varies from profession to profession, as some are far more casual than others. For example, a computer programmer would usually have far more leeway in their work behavior than a lawyer.
People are usually more careful than outside of work in how they behave around their colleagues, as many actions intended to be in jest can be perceived as inappropriate or even harassment in the work environment. In some cases, men may take considerably more care so as not to be perceived as being sexually harassing than they would ordinarily.
Counterproductive work behavior
Counterproductive work behavior is also a type of work behavior. Most of the people do not know what counterproductive work behavior is. Even people do not recognize this behavior, it seems normal to them. Here are some examples in order to understand what counterproductive behavior is:
- When someone is ignoring people at work.
- When people work slowly and the work needs to be done fast.
- When people refuse to help their colleagues.
- When people refuse to accept a task.
- When people show less interest in their work.
- When people show destructive behavior against their colleagues.
- When people do not appreciate their colleague's success.
These are the examples of counterproductive behavior that people confront in their daily life.
