The article examines the positive and negative aspects of workplace relationships. The author reports that a 2006 survey by communications consultancy the Aziz Corporation found that 80 percent of senior managers thought it was acceptable to look for a future partner at work. The author argues that this relaxed approach to workplace relationships can only work when strong values and behaviours are already firmly established in an organisation.
