Recent studies show that employees value the connections they have with their colleagues, and the majority feel that they are more productive when they have friends at work. Working within an atmosphere that encourages and develops positive connections between workmates can be great for your communication skills and business networking as well as your social life, but how do you know which of your colleagues to seek out as a personal friend?
There are many different personality types, and it can be helpful to consider who will make the best sort of friend at work. The positive or negative traits described here cover a huge variety of attitudes and behaviours, and most people will be a blend of more than one type. Can you spot any of your own personality traits on this list?
