Workers consider themselves ‘over-sharers’ in the office

The study found it takes just six months to settle in and become comfortable enough in a new role to start to discuss your personal life with peers at work.

The research by Pirkx found more than half of those willing to open up say they feel colleagues are an ‘extension of the family with 51 per cent saying they feel better adjusted for having people to vent to.

Their weight, arguments with their other half and health problems are also among some of the topics the nation’s workers will discuss with their peers.

Aston spoke to behavioural psychologist Dr Bo van Grinsven and Stella Smith, CEO & founder of Pirkx.
