Personal relationships at work

Author: Lynda Macdonald

Introduction

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.
