How to deal with an unfriendly colleague, and how to make an injury claim against an employer
Working with an unfriendly colleague shouldn’t be a very big deal, as you are only working with this person, and not married to them. However, when you go into an office every single day and have to face someone who you feel doesn’t like you, or is being unpleasant to you, it can start to wear on you very quickly.
What happens then is that eventually you start to feel that you cannot cope with going into work every day, and you start to dread your work week. It is best to deal with a situation like this sooner rather than later, so that you can start enjoying your work again.
- Be polite. Just because this person is being unfriendly to you doesn’t mean that you have to respond in kind. The best way to deal with anyone who is being unpleasant with you is to be as friendly and pleasant to them as you can be, to hopefully force them to realise their behaviour.
- Talk to them. If you are starting to become upset or irritated by the unfriendliness of this person, it may be worth sitting down with them and letting them know how their behaviour is affecting you and your work. Try to stay professional, though, and don’t be unpleasant.
- Stay away from them. As much as person, avoid having contact with someone that is unfriendly and makes you feel unhappy. This is the very best way that you are going to be able to get through the day without feeling upset or picked on by someone with this personality.
- Don’t rise to anything unpleasant. If they say unpleasant things to you, try not to let this bother you, or at least try not to let them see that this is bothering you, and they may stop treating you in this way.
