It may seem like a distant memory, but it wasn’t that long ago when the idea of people working in open plan offices was unheard of.

But once you’ve been working for a while, it can be tough to stay aware of what you do on daily basis. And yet, you might have unprofessional work habits, and without realizing it, be hurting your reputation.
