Most companies have no policy on romance


UPI News Service, 02/13/2006 

A survey for the Society of Human Resource Management finds that most U.S. companies have no policy on love in the office.

Only 9 percent of those polled said that their companies ban intra-office dating, and 70 percent said there is no policy at all on the subject.

The survey also found a growing tolerance for on-the-job romance, with 60 percent saying it is a bad idea, down from 70 percent in 2001. But that did not extend to relationships between managers and those they supervise with 80 percent of human resource professionals suggesting that should be out of bounds, up from 64 percent.

There was a marked drop in fear of sexual harassment claims, down from 95 percent in 2001 to 77 percent in 2005. At the same time, personnel managers are far more concerned about retaliation and hurt feelings if a couple breaks up, with 67 percent saying that is likely to be a problem, up from 12 percent in 2001.

CareerJournal.com polled 493 human resources professionals and 408 employees in November.
