Romance in the Workplace | Conversations at Coast with LBB

Editors posted on 16th March

By Editors

Say what you might, we've all had a crush of some sort at work. A boss who inspires you in more ways than one, the cute girl from HR who you'd love to discuss your 'package' with in detail, or the married guy who sits next to you and discusses all the romantic things he's done for his wife.

With a crew that's worked in huge set-ups, and now works in a rather intimate set up {albeit in a female dominated team}, LBB is coming together with Coast Cafe to present Edition 4 of Conversations at Coast - Romance in the Workplace.

The ethical, the romantic, the confidante, the clandestine… even the disguised {or not so disguised} possibility of harassment.

It's no secret that we spend a sizeable part of our lives at work. Between open floor plans, physical proximity, inadvertent eavesdropping, long hours of togetherness, offsites, and work travel, do we indeed end up tempting fate? Or does the excitement of a clandestine sexual relationship drive some of us to experiment with people we work with?

On the other hand, some of us genuinely do end up meeting our soul mates in the work space - someone who relates to long hours, our drive and motivations, and just gets our mind space. Some couples even start and run successful enterprises together. So where does work stop and private life begin? How does last night's fight not translate into an undercurrent at office the next morning?

If you've been in any of these places {or other hidden spots in that giant corporate building - no judgement!}, or have ever wondered about what goes down at your partner's place of work {we're human, aren't we?}, hop over to Coast Cafe this Thursday to get some perspective, and possibly embrace some real life truths. Coming from work? Bring your colleagues - should make for super interesting lunch table conversation on Friday…

Where: Coast Cafe, Hauz Khas Village

Time: 7.30pm to 8.30pm {Post event mixer at 8.30pm}
