Question to Ask The Workplace Doctors:
Complaint about a coworker was unintentional!
“How can I tell my boss I didn’t mean to complain about my co-worker?”
I had a mandatory one on one meeting with my boss recently to go over how I was doing since being hired 4 short months ago. It was a rushed meeting because we spent most of it going over the company website, then had 2 minutes left to go over my numbers and open questions/concerns.
In the process of discussing my work I informed her that I noticed a co-worker who has really high numbers is because she does not take a lunch. After much protesting of not telling my boss who it was, she said since I brought it up, she needed to know.
