Canada / More than one third of workers have dated a co-worker finds CareerBuilder.ca Survey

Looking for a Valentine? The office might be a good place to start, according to a new CareerBuilder.ca survey. CareerBuilder’s annual survey on office romance found more than one-third (35 percent) of Canadian workers have dated someone who worked for the same company, and 15 percent say they have done so more than once.

The national survey was conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder.ca from November 6 to December 2, 2013, and included a representative sample of 426 Canadian full-time, private sector employees across industries and company sizes.

Marriage

That budding office romance may even lead all the way to the altar, or possibly divorce court. Of those who dated someone from the office, one quarter (25 percent) ended up marrying their office sweetheart, while 17 percent admitted that either they were married or the co-worker they dated was married at the time of the affair.

Dating Up

One in five (22 percent) workers who have dated a coworker say their office sweetheart was at a higher level in the organization than they were – some even dated the boss (12 percent). However, only 2 percent of employees who have had an office relationship say the relationship helped them progress in their career.
