One in five of us claim to like everyone at work

Like it or not, if you choose a standard office job you’ll probably be spending the best part of your waking hours with your colleagues five days a week. Getting on with them is likely to make your days significantly more pleasant.

Most Britons get on with their colleagues

A new YouGov Omnibus survey produced in collaboration with Yahoo for the "Britain Is A Nation Of..." podcast brings good news: thankfully, two thirds of Brits (63%) currently in work like at least half of their colleagues. Four in ten (41%) say they like more than half, while a lucky one in five (22%) like everyone they work with. One in eight (12%) like half their colleagues.

The rest of us are less chummy with our workmates. Another one in eight (12%) like less than half of their colleagues… and one in fifty (2%) don’t like any of them.

Britons aged 35 to 44 are the least likely to feel warmly towards their workmates: just under six in ten (58%) like more than half or all their colleagues, compared to seven in ten (69%) 18 to 24s who do.

Women are slightly more likely than men to feel positively towards their colleagues, with eight in ten (79%) saying they like at least half, compared to seven in ten (72%) men.
