Dating in workplace

Gregg Ward, Workplace Consultant puts it this way: “There are a lot of “creeps” (both men and women) out there in the world; dating and falling for someone you work with is a lot easier/safer than trying to meet someone in clubs, bars, etc.

And, once the romance starts, it can be very exciting “pretending” to your colleagues that you’re not dating.

These relationships make sense because of the commonalities that co-workers share such as proximity to work, the actual work, the amount of time one spends at work, and the interests underlying one's career chose.

Friendships and romances can also affect the workplace positively adding to the sense of teamwork and camaraderie.

It can affect the careers of both employees with regard to advancement opportunities, choices of jobs, and assignments.

Clearly, these relationships can result in charges of sexual harassment, years or decades after the fact.

This type of situation can lead to poor performance, increased absenteeism, workplace drama and a possible hostile work environment.

Their goal of implementing policies consistently and fairly will help inform your choices.

Ahh, Monday morning; that annoying time to get up early, schlep into the office and get back to the stresses of the job. An office romance may make Monday mornings easier and more fun.

They also encourage gossip, job dissatisfaction, and low morale.
