One of those items we are warned against discussing at certain venues, or ever, is politics. Of course, it all depends on what direction that conversation takes.
Well, according to a new CareerBuilder survey, 36 percent of workers reported they discuss politics at work.
"Most workers opt to keep political debates outside of the workplace," said Rosemary Haefner, Vice President of Human Resources at CareerBuilder. "Anytime you're dealing with subject matter that is sensitive or potentially inflammatory, it's important to always be respectful of your colleagues' opinions and avoid emotionally-charged exchanges."
But, office politics and governmental ones are similar, right? This was answered with 46 percent of workers believe the competitive nature of government politics is very similar to office politics. Nearly one-in-five (19 percent) said office politics are more vicious than national politics.
