Long-lasting love might be closer than many single workers think according to new research.

A survey by Career Builder found that 30per cent of colleagues who dated ended their relationship with a trip down the wedding aisle.


The top industries for finding workplace romance included hospitality, information technology, financial services and healthcare.

Famous couples who met on the job include Barack and Michele Obama, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and CBS CEO Leslie Moonves and his wife Julie Chen.

Thirty-nine percent of the 4,216 employees surveyed said that they had dated a co-worker at least once during their working lives.

Of that number 29per cent said that they went out with a higher-up while 16per cent admitted that they had carried on with the boss.

Women were more likely than men to date someone above them on the career ladder - 38per cent compared to 21per cent.

Most said they had been open about these relationships, but 35per cent kept them secret.
