The New York Post reports that employees who gossip about co-workers or become distracted during meetings are two of the biggest complaints about the workplace.

At least those were the most frequent responses of office workers and financial executives recently surveyed on office etiquette by employment agency Accountemps, which is part of Robert Half.

'The most common civility culprit cited by chief financial officers is being distracted during meetings (27%)', according to the survey.

Workers, on the other hand, 'pointed to gossiping about colleagues (28%) as the most prevalent breach of workplace etiquette'.
