Forming bonds with your workers is important but could deeper relationships end in disaster? HRM asked an expert.

    I wholeheartedly agree. As an HR Manager, I am "friendly" with my co-workers but personal friends with none of them. I don't socialize with any co-workers outside the office, only at company functions. Employees expect us to be neutral and any perceived favouritism can affect our ability to mediate disputes, deal with workplace conflicts, or assist managers with employee performance problems. If we become close friends with a co-worker, what happens when for business reasons we have to facilitate their termination? We've just lost a friend.
