Northern Colorado Poll: Workplace Romance Leads to Marriage?
The Northern Colorado Business Report reported that a recent poll conducted by the Mountain States Employers Council that found over 70 percent of those surveyed had met their spouse at work.
“With employees spending more and more time at work, it only makes sense that some people will find romance in the workplace,” said Lorrie Ray, MSEC’s membership development director. “The key for employers is making sure that workplace dating does not turn into workplace harassment.”
And while many workplace romances lead to marriage and lifetime commitments, not all office affairs have such positive outcomes, the report noted. Past surveys of human resource managers revealed that office romances can trigger complaints of favoritism and sexual harassment and can lead to decreased productivity.
