More than 8 in 10 workers admit to crying at work, with almost half of those saying they were driven to tears because of their bosses or colleagues.
According to a new survey from career site Monster.com, there are multiple factors that can make people cry at work. More than 45% of respondents who said they cry at work blamed bosses or colleagues. Personal issues were second, with about 19% of workplace weepers blaming problems at home or in their non-workplace lives for following them through the office door.
Another 16% said their workloads had caused them to cry, suggesting many people may feel overwhelmed at work. Another 13% blamed bullying at work. If you find yourself crying at work, experts say the most important challenge is to ask yourself, ‘Why am I upset?” and then try to find a solution.
