Love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage…

Now that we’ve got that song stuck your head, let’s talk about the elephant in the office — Valentine’s Day!

It’s coming up. And even though it falls on a Sunday this year, that doesn’t mean Cupid won’t be striking arrows in your workplace.

Romance and work have never gone together quite as well as a horse and carriage. So as a business owner, how do you deal?

Allow us to help. We searched our archives to find the very best Valentine’s Day-themed blogs to help you navigate the season of love.

From handling office romances to sexting, we’ve got all the information you need to have a fun, compliant, and HR-approved Valentine’s Day.

Here’s 4 of Integrity HR’s best Valentine’s Day blogs:

1. Handling Office Romances

This topic is often the first one that comes to mind when you think of HR & Valentine’s Day together. We get asked about office romances a lot. So what do you do if Bill and Janet from accounting get all Jim & Pam on you? Find out by reading this blog.

2. Hugging at Work

Ah, the hug – a centerpiece of both romantic and platonic affection. Who doesn’t love a nice hug? Some people, actually. And they may be your co-workers. In this blog, we discuss appropriate hugging etiquette at work – for both the huggers and non-huggers out there.

3. Preventing Sexual Harassment

Okay, we know sexual harassment doesn’t represent love or anything Valentine’s Day stands for. But, unfortunately it is a relevant topic that must addressed. Read this blog to learn 7 ways sexual harassment can be prevented at your workplace.

4. Sexting

Not to ruin the fun, but we’ve got another serious topic. Sexting may seem harmless, but it can become a form of sexual harassment, especially when combined with work. Read this blog to learn how you can protect yourself and your employees from this issue. (Isn’t modern romance fun?)
