The ethics of managing people... What would you do?
You are the head of your department in a large organisation and have a good relationship with the majority of your staff.
Recently you noticed that one of your senior female employees - a married woman - has been making advances towards a junior male employee.
There is no indication of harassment, but a lot of coffee breaks together and subsequently the productivity of both parties appears to be significantly reduced. They spend a lot of the time talking together and you’ve now started to notice a pattern of them occasionally being absent on the same day.
What would you do?
