With Valentine’s Day approaching, love in the workplace becomes a topic of concern for many places of work. Organizations find conversations about office romance difficult to approach and often ignored until a serious threat is presented. We recommend the following to avoid larger issues that may result.
- Update handbook to include a policy about office romance
- Provide training to supervisors and managers on addressing the topic
- Regularly share the company’s sexual harassment policy and procedures
These policies and procedures are in place at the workplace to protect the safety of your employees and the company. We are your resource and will be glad to help you adopt policies and training to address these.
