Is it appropriate to give (or call coworkers by) nick names or pet names in an office environment?
If it does not cause offence to the person, or anyone else, and the name is not generally derogatory then it should be OK.
i think it would be ok to do so, when you have a good relationship with your co-workers, or the mood vat the office is fine, are some of your collegues doing the same? if so, why not then, but to be honest, i wouldn't give them pet names.
I don't think so, unless that's already their nickname in real life. Better to keep if professional at work. Or others may start coming up with stupid nicknames for you!
You should speak to any of your colleagues in the way that is acceptable to the company you work for. Some companies use first names, some use Mr/Mrs... some use just surname. I once worked at a place where we were addressed, Mr... and the managers were addressed as Mr.. but we spoke to each other on first name/nickname basis, every company is different. When I was teaching, it was Mr/Mrs in the class room first name in the staff room.
Depends on where you work. In retail you can nickname anyone, anything! :-)
if your coworker dosen't have any problem with it then its ok or if he does feel affected then you should quit doing that
I come from a mining underground where EVERYBODY had a nickname. A cple of times as Boss I was assigned guys who when I heard their real name had no idea who they were, until my supervisor used their nicknames.LOL Yet today there are many that we both exchange FB notes using our nicknames today. In an office some would say its different but even then I still nickname the office or telemarketers I know. But thats just me.
