Valentine’s Day is upon us and that means love is in the air. While most of us are content to celebrate our romantic relationships outside of the workplace, there can be an unavoidable attraction between coworkers. It’s important to recognize the potential implications that office romance can have and how to navigate them with professionalism and grace. Let’s take a look at what you need to consider when it comes to office romance.


IT CAN BE A DISTRACTION AT WORK

Office romances can often lead to gossiping among colleagues or one partner feeling like they’re getting special treatment from their manager. This means other employees may feel uncomfortable or even jealous. Therefore, if you find yourself in an office romance, it’s important for both partners to remain professional at work and make sure that their relationship isn’t a distraction for others.


THE RULES ARE DIFFERENT FOR MANAGERS & EMPLOYEES

If one partner is the manager of the other, there are certain rules that must be taken into consideration. The manager should not take any action that might be perceived as biased towards his or her partner, such as giving preferential treatment or promotions without merit. Additionally, managers should make sure they are aware of any company policies regarding office relationships and follow them accordingly.


BEWARE OF HOW IT WILL AFFECT YOUR CAREER

It's important to remember that your career goals come first and foremost in any situation, so it's important to consider how your relationship could affect your job performance or opportunities for advancement in the future. If you think your relationship could potentially harm your career down the line, then it may be best not to pursue it within the confines of your workplace.


Navigating office romance this Valentine's Day requires thoughtfulness and caution on both parts of a couple in order for everyone else at work - including those involved - can remain comfortable and focused on their job duties without surprises or distractions caused by a budding office romance. Keep these tips in mind if you find yourself attracted to someone at work this season—it could save you from some awkward situations! And remember—always stay professional!
