38% of employees have dated a co-worker at least once in their careers.
Office romance is alive and well and a significant number of workers say they've dated their colleagues, according to a new survey from CareerBuilder. In a surprisingly large number of cases, these cubicle dalliances have led to the altar. And no one is off limits – even the boss and others higher up the office org chart. While many companies don't explicitly prohibit dating among the rank and file, you should always approach dating at work cautiously. "Whether you're dating someone higher-up or a colleague at the same level, office romances are always tricky," says Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at CareerBuilder. "It's important to know your company's office dating policy. Also, remember to stay professional and draw a boundary line between your personal life and the workplace." More than 7,700 full-time workers took part in the survey.
