Working with work friends
Anita Bruzzese, CareerBuilder, says having friends at work can increase morale and enhance work teams…but they also can have a dark side.
They can cause work avoidance. If the friends are in different depts, there can be a certain amount of walking back and forth.
Then if there is a company-wide work team created, the friends may be cliquey with each other on the team.
If one friend is promoted and the other isn’t…yuh-oh.
I had a problem when I had a real job with trying to be friends with my staff members. That never worked out.
What do you think, readers?
