Passion can be tricky
WHILE you can find true love at work, it can be a tricky issue for bosses.
Almost one fifth of relationships start in the office, according to YouGov research.
But HR expert Gill McAteer, from business advice firm Citation, says: “When it comes to workplace romances, many employers don’t know where they stand.”
Here are her top tips if employees get together.
- Banning office romances may be a step too far, but employers can put specific policies in place.
- Any policy should cover whether confidential disclosure of the romance is required and, if so, who to. A timeframe should also be placed on disclosure.
- Firms must consider the implications if, for example the relationship involves senior and more junior colleagues.
- Set expected standards of conduct, balancing the business needs and the right of employees to a private life.
- Any policy should remind colleagues that pursuing an unwanted relationship or inappropriate behaviour towards a colleague could be deemed sexual harassment.
