Company mixers and social hours were designed to encourage personal connections and dating with colleagues.The balancing act between maintaining a policy like this and prying into employees’ personal lives can be difficult, but the key to its success is respect.
Senior leaders encouraged office relationships, romances, flings, and dating with people from work.
Because if you were in the office, you were likely to get more work done than skipping out early to take your sweetie out on the town.
The fewer secrets, the better off your workplace will be.
Employees will be less likely to sneak around and engage in “extra curricular activities” when they know their relationship is on the books, so to speak.
A good friend of mine worked at a healthcare technology company that catered to young, hungry, and fiercely competitive workforce.
