We have previously written that office romances can be tricky territory; so tricky, in fact, that many human resources professionals would say that the risks nearly always outweigh the potential benefits. For instance, what happens if the couple breaks up or the relationship sours?
Earlier this week, we wrote that many companies in Broward County and across Florida will be throwing holiday parties this month in order to thank their employees for a good year and allow everyone a chance to mix more casually.
December is a socially busy month. And it is one of the few times of the year when it is customary for work life to mix with social life. This usually occurs in the form of the holiday party.
Earlier this week, we wrote about the results of a recent survey by CareerBuilder.com. In a survey of 3,900 workers, 40 percent said they have dated a colleague at some point in their careers. Ten percent have done so in the last year, and 30 percent ended up marrying their office flame.
Finding romance at the office has long been considered a bad idea, or at least a risky one. When things go wrong, awkward encounters with your ex are not the only consequence.
