Around Valentine’s Day, conversations about love and romance are everywhere – including the office. And with good reason: According to Career Builder, 38% of American workers said they have dated a co-worker at least once over their career.

But just how should organizations approach creating and enforcing a dating policy in 2018?

In this episode of HR Break Room we will discuss:

  • the importance of having a clear, simple dating policy that empowers employees
  • best practices for writing different workplace dating policies regarding coworkers, managers and clients
  • clearly communicating the difference between sexual harassment and romantic interest within the organization

 

Learn more about communicating policy to your workforce in our whitepaper, Discover Fueling Employee Knowledge and Propelling Business Growth through Learning Management Systems.
