Workplace dating statistics
Industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology is the scientific study of the workplace.
The chance that you'll find romance at work increases if you work at a company with a strong corporate culture, such as Southwest Airlines (LUV), which reports that 2,328 employees have a spouse who works for the company.
However, romance can be ever present within the workplace and may be no further away than the next desk.
A 2006 study by the Society for Human Resource Management found that as many as 40 percent of workers had had an office romance.
The development of interpersonal relationships at work is inevitable.
After all, many men and women spend most of their weekday hours together.
And when office romance leads to the altar, employees can experience potentially greater health benefits, perks, and maybe even a double-down in stock options.
