Most Annoying Phrases in the Workplace!

A recent survey of 2,000 U.S. office workers discovered some of the office jargon most annoying to workers. Nearly 50% said they were highly annoyed by the use of the phrase “think outside the box.” “Synergy” was also on the least-liked list as was “Circle back.” “Bandwith”, when referring to someone’s time or capacity to get things done also made the annoying list as did “Table this conversation”, “run it up the flagpole” and “Pow-wow.” Just say “meeting” for crying out loud!
