Dawn and Tim did it in The Office. Doug and Carol did it in ER. And it seems that the Irish are having office flings as well!
A recent poll has revealed that half of those questioned had hooked up with one co-worker while a quarter had enjoyed multiple office romps.
Tim and Dawn in TV show The Office had a bit of a thing going on.
The study by IllicitEncounters.com showed that employees are keen to get together with almost 75 per cent admitting to having a crush on a co-worker and considering making a move.
However not everyone is able to get in on the action as 6 per cent said that their contracts contained clauses forbidding such antics.
Flirting and flings are affecting productivity and profits apparently.
Not surprising considering that it was also revealed that in-house relationships can cost businesses thousands of euros due to a decrease in productivity, which the majority of employees admit is likely to happen when they start flirting with somebody in the office.
Speaking about the findings, IllicitEncounters.com spokesperson Mike Taylor said: “You will never stop people from developing romantic feelings towards their co-workers which can often lead to a full blown affair.”
