Workplace romance is an ongoing issue that has impacted the business world for decades. Part of the reason that office romance can lead to controversy is that if one party is in a greater position of power, it could be considered sexual harassment. However, there are also instances where office romances have positive outcomes. Some former co-workers end up married or working very well together. There’s so much nuance when it comes to office romance that outlining every potential circumstance can be difficult or even impossible. Enforcing those policies can be even more cumbersome.
This panel will explore:
- Best ways to approach this complicated and sensitive topic
- How to make this an opportunity to have some difficult but necessary conversations?
- Policies and guidelines beneficial to both the organization and to employees
