Employer no dating policy
On some level, it’s understandable why people would be inclined to date their co-workers.
“Colleagues start with something huge in common, which is the work,” says Susan Heathfield, a management and organization development consultant.
Some may prohibit intra-office dating entirely, while others only forbid relationships between managers and direct reports.
She recommends breaking the news with an announcement that’s brief and to the point by saying something like, “Yes, we had a date, but I’d like to keep that between us, if you don’t mind.” You can even do the same with your manager if you have a friendly rapport.
“But when love is no longer in the air, our offices are the first they visit after consulting friends and co-workers.” After all, who wants to go on a sales call with their ex?
