What if your coworker is lazy?


Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, takes on the subject of slackers at work.

According to a study (VitalMarts), a quarter of workers put in more time each week than they have to in order to cover for lazy colleagues.

Bosses may not even know anyone is dogging it.

This can lead to resentment and bad morale. You may need to do something.

First, do not be judgmental. Approach with respect. You may be more mad at yourself for taking it.

If you decide to just do the work--then do it. Don't complain.

And remember--the boss may not want this person doing the hard stuff--to this degree, the boss has already acted. You are reliable--so more work falls on you.
