Workers looking for love at the office

3 ways office romances can help businesses

A study by Morgan Pryce, London-based commercial property agents, reveals that 50% of UK workers are open to the prospect of office romance.

The 2016 study asked those of working age (between 16-65 years) within London and surrounding boroughs if they would consider looking for romance at work.

More than half of those under 34 years old said they would not mix a romantic and business relationship, while the older generation – 55 years plus – were more willing to have a workplace love interest.

The study also found that men are more likely to be open to the concept of a tryst with a colleague then women, with 64% of men in the poll voting for looking for ‘the one’ at the office. Women remained more wary, with only 36% saying they would look for a partner at work.

An equal number of city and rural workers were polled in and around London and it was found that a majority of those working in the capital voted against workplace romance compared to those working in more rural areas such as surrounding boroughs like Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire.

The poll follows on from a recent study conducted by Morgan Pryce on the areas within London to find the most eligible bachelors. The study found that the complex city was split into areas where more singletons resided than others.
