Washington, Feb 2 (ANI): Building strong friendships at work may improve office productivity, a new survey has revealed
A survey by finance and accounting recruitment specialist Robert Half International found that 63 percent of employees think that when colleagues are friends outside the office, it has a positive impact on the workplace, with 57 percent of their supervisors agreeing.
According to the study, having good friends at work provides a social dimension to the workday and can make the job feel more enjoyable.
Pallavi Anand, a director at Robert Half, offered some tips on how to make office colleagues your good friends like inviting a colleague to lunch, joining project groups or committees, celebrating milestones, organizing a potluck, not being cliquey, widening one's circle and so on.
While building work friendships can help build the quality of life at the office, experts at Robert Half also cautioned employees to avoid several pitfalls, including socializing to the point of not getting work done.
Becoming friends with the office gossip monger or the boss' vocal critics and pitching in to help a co-worker friend at the expense of your own workload also is discouraged, Robert Half experts said. (ANI)
