Falling asleep while interviewing a job seeker and sending an offer letter to the wrong candidate are among managers’ most embarrassing moments at work, according to a survey by OfficeTeam, a division of Robert Half International Inc.
The survey included more than 1,300 senior managers at companies with 20 or more employees in the United States and Canada.
“Nearly everyone has had an embarrassing situation at work,” said Robert Hosking, executive director at OfficeTeam. “Although these moments can be awkward, it’s best not to dwell on them, or you risk drawing more negative attention on yourself.”
Other embarrassing moments listed include answering the phone using the wrong company name, falling off the stage while speaking during a business event, getting locked in the office and inadvertently sending the boss a personal voice mail from a spouse.
