Top Fifty Workplace Jargon We Hate

By Grace Vasquez

I can understand when jargon is needed for a certain type of job for example engineering or at a law firm. However, I seriously think “jargon” is created by people who probably weren’t popular growing up and need to find ways to validate themselves so they come up with “buzzwords” and honestly, that’s all they are don’t you think?

Londonoffices.com did a study and they found if you want low productivity or just to drive your employees insane use “jargon” terms during your meetings or company emails. It works every time.

I will say this because Londonoffice.com is “result driven” their  “game plan” was to make it easy for us “out of the loop” readers and listed the 50 most annoying jargon terms so “going forward” we all will be on the “same page.” How thoughtfu; it’s a “win-win” for us all. Ugh. ~grace
