Office crush | Should you have a workplace romance policy?

Should you have a workplace romance policy?

Love is in the air – but should HR be cracking down on it? Whilst Valentine’s Day might be the spark that finally pushes Nadeem and Kevin from furtive, hurried glances across the kitchenette into finally asking each other out, should employers be worried about relationships that start at work?

What if they eventually break-up? What if, with Nadeem being a manager, there is perceived favouritism towards Kevin which affects office morale? Should HR take a stand a stop this office romance before it starts?
