The relationship between the boss and the employee is very important to company productivity, but it can easily become complicated. Those who supervise people have to be cautious about what to say, how to act, and how involved they can get in their employees’ lives. Managing such a relationship is definitely a precarious balancing act. But bosses can be friendly even without sitting down with the people they supervise and chatting about the weekend.
We have collected some of the best examples of boss-employee relationships you would probably like to be a part of, and they definitely seem like the kind that can make work bearable. From having the ugliest sweater competition to ‘supporting’ each other during a weight-loss contest, these examples prove that it’s possible to maintain a friendly, yet professional demeanor in the workplace no matter what your position.
