Company dating in the workplace
As Steven Mintz mentioned above, around 40% of people in the U. admit that they have dated their coworkers and this rate rises up to 70% in the UK (Wilson 1).
For example, when you search for a film, we use your search information and location to show the most relevant cinemas near you.As for lateral romance, there is less likely to have a conflict of interest if people date their peers who have different projects from them.However, there will be ethical issues related to the projectivity and quality of their work.I appreciate students' inclusion of my blog in their responses.Last week at Happy Hour after work, I was chatting with my Fund Controller about dating in the workplace.On the one hand, “job productivity can be negatively affected by romance, because of long lunches, extended discussions behind closed doors, missed meetings, late arrivals, early departures, and errors” (Wilson 7).
In this kind of situation, it is harder for dating people to perform the best of their competence and ability at work, which results in a lack of due care.
On the other hand, workplace romance may have an impact on employees’ motivation.
If one person has arguments with another one he or she dates and cannot resolve the problems before coming to work, they will extend their hostility and displeasure to the workplace since they will still see each other in the office.
This week I will post five blogs from students at Pepperdine University.
Professor Carolyn Galantine assigned students to choose a blog and post comments.
