HR Strange But True!
July 05, 2001

Four in 10 office workers in Italy admit to having "affectionate relations" in the workplace according to a new survey, and 56 percent say office romances make them more productive.

The findings are part of a poll of 2,500 employees at 50 companies.

Nearly eight in 10 of those who said they had been involved in a sexual relationship with someone at work said they also worked "twice as hard" while the fling was going on.

"Work should be erotic," the survey quoted one manager as saying. "It is a big part of your life, but if you go to work without having passion, it's not going to go very well."

The survey found that the favorite forms of flirtation include the "is your mouse broken" excuse for hand stroking (23 percent), saucy e-mails (19 percent) and suggestive post-it notes (17 percent).
