Fifty one per cent of Britons have been found to suffer from a bout of rage during work, over common disputes such as whose turn it is to make coffee, or having problems with their computer.
According to an article published in the Telegraph, many workers encounter a bust up over issues such as co-workers talking whilst others are concentrating on their work, being passed up for a pay rise, or the printer being out of action.
A spokesperson for Planscape commented: “As we spend a significant portion of our lives in the workplace, it’s important to find a balance that meets your professional and personal needs.
“Research has found that the design and the layout of the office can greatly affect your performance, which is hugely important. While tea and coffee rounds will always prove troublesome, fortunately something can be done to improve the ergonomics of an office – and that’s by investing in furnishings designed to complement your comfort zone; reducing the levels of stress experienced in the workplace.”
Unsurprisingly, the study found that 42 per cent of workers were at their most stressed and impatient on a Monday – hitting the proverbial brick wall by the time the clock struck noon.
Commissioning the survey was Gavin Herbert, from Old Jamaica Extra Fiery Ginger Beer, stating: "British adults are renowned for their work hard, play hard attitude, which means that when they are in the office, they are used to coping with heavy workloads and lots of pressure.
"When working in this type of highly stressed environment, smaller niggles can get heightened and appear to be a big deal.
"And on a Monday, many people will be tired and grumpy after a long weekend, which adds to the likelihood of them blowing a fuse if someone skips the tea round or the printer stops working."
Around 25 per cent of those surveyed admitted that they would be riled if upon their return to work, found that their desk had been used and left untidy.
