Global #PeopleSkillsChat Topic: Workplace Friendships

When you think of how much time we spend in the workplace with the same people every day, the subject of workplace friendships becomes inevitable. Friendship has many benefits on employee happiness and also on productivity. Yet workplace friendships also pose some interesting people skills challenges. Can they become cliques? Do they skew people away from the business mission? And what about close friendships developing between leaders/managers and some employees? Does it isolate others?

Join us in People Skills global Twitter chat (Hashtag #PeopleSkillsChat) Sunday, Oct. 27th, 2019 10am ET to lend your insights on our topic of workplace friendships.
