Are Office Politics Unavoidable?

Some people love navigating office politics, others dread it.  A recent survey found, however, that most people agree office politics are inevitable.

In a study, by Robert Half International, 60% of respondents reported that office politics can not be avoided.

“The savviest professionals practice workplace diplomacy,” said Max Messmer, chairman and CEO of Robert Half International. “They remain attuned to political undercurrents but don’t allow themselves to get pulled into situations that could compromise their working relationships or reputation.”

Are office politics an everyday part of your work life?  If so do you enjoy them or detest them, and how do you deal with office politics?
