Office Romance Is At A 10-Year Low

Office romance just hit a 10-year-low. 36% of people have dated a coworker — according to a survey from CareerBuilder, that number is down from 40% in 2008. The report surveyed 809 full-time workers across industries and companies in the private sector. of those surveyed, 37% of men said they had dated a coworker compared to 35% of women. 31% of people who met at work and started dating ended up getting married, while 41% had to keep it a secret. The survey also found a pattern of “dating up” — 30% of workers say they dated someone higher up then themselves. 35% of women had dated up, compared to 25% of men. The survey was conducted in November and December 2017, amid the #MeToo movement. Chief HR Officer at CareerBuilder Rosemary Haefner stated, “Office romance is experiencing a dip and whether its impacted by the current environment around sexual harassment or by workers not wanting to admit the truth, the fact remains that office romance has been around forever and will continue to be.” So, if you’ve ever gotten romantic with a coworker, you’re definitely not alone. But, for some reason, the steamy trend seems to be on a steady decline.
