It is just not the single, who were ready to mingle, even married men and women were getting involved to a considerable extent, the report revealed.
At least one-third (34 per cent) of the working executives in the corporate sector saw no harm in romancing married colleagues, the survey conducted by global research firm Synovate for Teamlease, said.
A large number of working executives (59 per cent) felt women were equal partners in office romances with many even initiating affairs, the survey said.
A high number of executives (56 per cent) were clear on the issue that organisations should not interfere in romantic involvement between employees.
Overall, 16 per cent of those polled admitted to have been romantically involved with their office colleagues.
The survey comprised respondents belonging to top 500 companies in India. The questionnaires were administered to employees in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Pune, Chandigarh and Hyderabad.
Is playing romance really so dangerous?
Work, after all, is the place where many people spend more than a third of their lives, and it's possibly one of the best places where employees can find a potential mate who shares similar life goals and attitudes.
Southwest Airlines thinks not. The airline has about 1,000 married couples on its rolls and gives an annual "Love Award" recognizing the contribution that one special couple makes to the company.
But as romantic as that sounds for someone who's looking for love, dating in the workplace poses many problems for business owners. That’s why many businesses have rules against office romances; some even have rules against hiring married couples.
Suggested rules of the road for work and love:
1. Go ahead: Dive right in
2. Keep it discreet - but don't be secretive.
3. Don't cheat. Just don't.
4. And remember: The forbidden fruit is always the most tempting.
Forty-three percent of workers in the United States say they've dated a fellow employee; of those, 34 percent reported getting hitched, according to a 2006 survey on office romance by CareerBuilder.com.
ROMANCE IN POLITICS
H. Vishwanath’s book Halli Hakki Haadu (A Village Bird’s Song).
Vishwanath, a member of the former chief minister’s cabinet and counted among his “loyalists”, apparently believes he has done no harm to his former boss. But a “passing” reference to the actress has handed Krishna’s detractors what they were looking for.
According to excerpts carried in a Bangalore paper today, Krishna had asked Vishwanath what “people” would “think” if Saroja Devi was given a ticket from Mandya, his political turf, in the 2004 Lok Sabha elections.
Vishwanath had replied: “Sir, people know what happened between you and the star when you were young. They say Krishna won’t forget his old number and will definitely give her a ticket.”
Krishna was said to have laughed and said: “We should not forget old numbers. It is a sin.”
