A current study discovered that 73% of British adults have a work partner, indicating a platonic relationship with a work associate with emotional bonds and trust.

4 in 10 of this group shared that they are most likely to confide in a work partner about work issues and monetary troubles, instead of their better half. Typical factors for having a work partner are that they benefit psychological health and work-life pleasure.

This platonic bond can be so strong that 3 in 10 participants would leave their present job if their work partner were to leave. 13% of participants, 19% of men, pick to keep their work partner a trick from their partner.

The study was carried out by Krispy Kreme, who is running a project for Valentine’s Day concentrating on workplace relationships. Work partners can go to a Krisy Kreme store in between 6th– 12th February and get 2 Valentine’s Day doughnuts for the price of one.

“We invest a lot time in the workplace, that forming genuine, jubilant relationships with our coworkers is so crucial and as the research study reveals, people remain in reality obtaining real take advantage of their working other halves and other halves, from having someone to laugh with to someone to confide in” stated Emma Colquhoun, Chief Marketing Officer UK & Ireland at Krispy Kreme.
