The 25 Species of Coworkers

Alice Handley and Kayla Baxter

The Slacker

What they do:

Think about it: Have you ever seen this person actually working hard? Ever? We thought so! Your office enemy is an expert at working hard to get absolutely nothing done. No matter what it takes, The Slacker will make sure someone else is breaking a sweat.

How to deal:

We suggest making sure you document every dropped project and missed deadline, that way you’ll be covered in case the boss decides to take action. If it gets really bad, it’s also worth saving every email from that person so that you have extra evidence in the event they promise to help you and don’t deliver. Good luck, and keep working hard!
