Synopsis: This is a new podcast by The Straits Times to help you work smarter, think deeper, and get ahead in your work life.
In this episode, we are going to talk about something most of us have come across in our working life: workplace romance.
Are companies getting it all wrong when they try to police workplace relationships? Are their rules even effective?
To discuss this, The Straits Times' senior correspondent Krist Boo hosts lawyer Ian Lim, head of employment at TSMP Law Corp and Ms Mollie Tay, a financial services planning manager.
