Is It Wise To Have A Workplace Bestie?

It’s not easy navigating how to make friends at work. How close should you be with your co-workers? Too much, and you might feel difficult to say ‘no’ and let your workload pile on. But too little, and you miss out on collaboration and maybe even forming a meaningful relationship between people you spend half of your time with in a week. So should you make friends at work? How do you draw the line between personal and professional friendships? We speak to Elaine Fernandez, Social Psychologist & Curriculum Manager at GIFT.ed for more in depth discussions.
