Personal relationships at work
Author: Lynda Macdonald
This line manager briefing examines the subject of managing personal relationships at work. Although the briefing refers to romantic or family relationships between work colleagues, the principles are also applicable to employees in such a relationship with a contractor, client or supplier, or with someone who works for a competitor of the organisation. Issues that the briefing deals with include disclosure of personal relationships, transfer to another job or department and dealing with unacceptable behaviour.
This line manager briefing is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation for training purposes, which should be used in conjunction with the briefing. The briefing and PowerPoint presentation can be adapted for use, subject to the XpertHR terms and conditions of use.
