5 Ways to Make Friends at Work

  1. Introducing yourself – This may seem obvious, but being the first to introduce yourself, gives a great first impression of a friendly and approachable personality, instantly making the other worker feel they can easily strike up a conversation with you.
  2. Showing an interest/small talk – This again may feel like an obvious one, but engaging with small talk, asking questions and showing a genuine interest in your colleague’s life can go a long way. You may find that you have a lot in common and similar interests.
  3. Going for lunch – Lunchtime is the perfect time to get to know a fellow colleague, asking if they want to go for lunch with you instantly makes them feel included and part of a team.
  4. After work drinks – This is also another great way to get to know your colleagues in a more relaxed and informal environment. You’ll be amazed at the stories you’ll hear!
  5. Local events – Similarly, have a look to see if there are any events taking place near to your office. This could be as simple as a film showing at a local cinema, a comedy night at a local pub or a BBQ in the park to bring workers together to know each other.
