Preventing people problems – Office relationships


Q: Last week I caught two of my young employees getting too close for comfort in the stationery cupboard! What do I do?

A: Whose comfort, yours or theirs? If you have a policy about workplace relationships, see each of them individually and make sure they understand the rules. If not, then spell out the rules in the meeting i.e. not wasting working time canoodling or sending loads of emails and text messages. We will send you some HR Dept tissues as the course of young love never does run smoothly.
