Having friends at work is incredibly important for employee engagement and happiness. Employees that report having close friends at work are more productive, happier, receive more praise, and are less likely to look for other jobs. According to research, employees that have good relationships with their coworkers are even willing to forego a salary increase to stay with their friends.

Not having friends at work can lead to feelings of loneliness and can make an employee disengaged.

This presentation dives deep into the research behind why having friends at work is so important.
