Is dating the new employee benefit?

Something for the weekend…

Most employers encourage social gatherings and activities among staff to foster a better working environment.

Events usually involve days or nights out, such as meals and office parties, but could workplace dating services be the next step?

A survey of 1,000 employees, by OfficeTeam, found that 73% of respondents believe romances should be allowed in the workplace. Luckily for them, a separate OfficeTeam survey of 200 HR professionals found that 97% either always, or sometimes, permit office romances.

Perhaps instead of looking for new healthcare benefits and the best pension scheme, employers should invest in a speed-dating scheme.
