“The more employees you have, the more I encourage organizations to consider adding a dating policy,” says Tina Hamilton, PHR, president and CEO of hireVision Group, Inc. “Even if it’s an awkward subject, office romances are not something you want to pretend won’t or don’t affect your employees. A clear dating policy protects your organization from potential harassment, favoritism, discrimination and other such unpleasant events.”
