"Employees should keep their private lives and personal activities as separate as possible from the workplace."


The author state that the private life of an employee and his personal activities should be separated as much as possible from the work place, i have to agree with the author opinion and support it by couple of reasons.

First for an employee to be more productive in doing his work assignments he or she needs a clear mind, therefore many professional employees developed their ability to focus on their work by separating personal life from workplace. this is a very effective way although many may find it hard to do in practice.

Another reason is that most of the employees do personal activities to relieve the stress they have at the workplace, basically by forgetting everything at the workplace (your boss, work problems, emails, stressful meetings... etc) and going for a 9 wholes golf course for example or joining friends or family for dinner, things like that are effective in relieving stress.

Some might argue that many people made good friends at the work place and build a strong relationship with their colleges in which they share their privet lives and activities, however sharing private lives are better dealt with outside the workplace most of the time.

In conclusion i think the author argument is valid because separating the personal life from the workplace and doing personal activities away from the workplace will benefit both the employee and the origination he or she works in.

In 3rd Para...You are talking about Employees, and suddenly you mention "your" in bracket. Correct usag, however, is "their".

"Some might argue that many people made good friends at the work place and build ....check your grammer.

"privet lives"...spellings please!!!!

Overall, I am extremely unhappy. Reasons are not strong enough besides lot of grammer and spelling errors.
