I listened with great interest to the latest episode of the Hostile Work Environment podcast, which featured as its guest my good friend Dan Schwartz talking about the pitfalls of Valentine’s Day at work.
Dan cited CareerBuilder’s annual V-Day survey, which offers some interesting stats about the current state of office romances:
22 percent of workers have dated their boss (up 7 percent from last year). 31 percent of workers who started dating at work ultimately married each other. Almost 1 in 10 female workers whose work romance soured left their job. 41 percent of workers had to keep their romance a secret.
