I would never date another co-worker again.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
Jim Case Carlton’s Training announced yesterday a new training initiative for workplace romances. Even where romances are prohibited, the custom continues. After all, most people spend the majority of their time at work and subsequently meet their spouse at work. But when it goes south there are losses great than expected. These workplace romances can be handled in a professional manner and Carlton’s Training Jim Case is now addressing how to do that.
Don’t dip the pen in the company ink. Don’t eat where you sleep. There are a million colloquials that warn against it but most take part in an office romance. Jim Case Carlton’s Training understands that most people meet their significant others at work. But is it a good idea? No. Can it be avoided? Probably not. So here are some discussion areas and how to best handle these sticky workplace issues.
There are laws to prevent workplace romances according to Jack Cash Carlton’s Training, especially those involving a superior. There is good reason for this. First of all it can turn into a legal matter with quid pro quo issues at stake. But to be more candid it makes for an uncomfortable workplace for others and also puts pressure on the superior to give preferential treatment that other co-workers can see right up close in the office.
Jim Case Carlton’s Training has seen that workplace breakups are different that of normal difficult breakups. Now the employee has to see the other employee almost daily. Trying to get over someone is difficult enough and most can’t handle seeing the person at work, with another or having to speak to them about professional matters at work without it taking on tones of a personal matter. “I would never date another co-worker again,” says Leslie Townsend of Ben and Jerry’s.
If the best solution according to Carlton’s Training Jack Cash is to never date a co-worker then the second best solution when dating one is to handle it professionally. Avoid contact with the co-worker if at all possible. Never discuss personal issues at work so other employees are not affected by the conversation. If forced to deal with the matter at work take it to a conference room to privately discuss that you will discuss it off company time and not at work and to cease discussion of the matter at work.
