Begone from our sight, amazeballs! Kit Out My Office research

Online office furniture retailer, Kit Out My Office, has released its annual list of the most annoying office phrases that it believes should be stamped out as part of New Year’s resolutions.

These are:

  1. Think outside the box
  2. Hit the ground running
  3. Do more with less
  4. Can I borrow you for a second?
  5. Amazeballs

2017’s most annoying office phrases were:

  1. Think outside the box
  2. It’s not rocket science 
  3. Amazeballs
  4. Going forward
  5. Can I borrow you for a second?

2,519 office workers took part in the e-tailer’s survey. At the opposite end of the spectrum lays “it is what it is”, with nobody stating that it was irritating or overused. Gareth Jones, who was responsible for the research at Kit Out My Office, says: “The modern working life is fast-paced, and as such we strive to deliver information in a clear and concise manner. The downside of this is it is a breeding ground for jargon. Setting a collective New Year’s resolution in your office to stamp-out jargon in 2018 could definitely help to improve morale. We honestly hoped to see a little more variety versus last year, as we hoped people would start cutting out annoying office phrases. However, they’re still being used widely, which provides us with a reason for continuing to undertake the survey.”
