While this era of “political correctness” may have many of us shying away from stepping on anyone’s toes, many of us still aspire to the big bucks so often associated with climbing the corporate ladder.

And, with more and more of us spending more time at the office than we do at home, our workplace is being transformed into a comfortable personal space. But, experts are issuing a “red flag”. While many companies and employers may encourage you to make yourself feel at home, just HOW homey you make your corporate cubicle may affect your career advancement and the potential for promotion.

Experts note that if you have more than one in five items that reflect your family life or personal style, you may be seriously compromising your professionalism. And, they add that this weariness of crossing this delicately fine line, is a primarily American phenomenon. In fact, they suggest that it’s a basic American principle that says that you should not mix business with pleasure and that includes not cluttering your work space with personal, rather than professional paraphernalia.

And, research has revealed that managers based professionalism, dedication to the company and the ability to do the job necessary for promotion directly to the number of items that blatantly reflected one’s personality and personal life.
