Research indicates that friendships at work increase productivity and overall job satisfaction. Additionally, employees are more likely to believe they are well-paid. Those who share friendships at work are more likely to share ideas, be innovative and feel like their work has real meaning and purpose (p. 17). Yet, Vernon posits that in the workplace, we often experience a pseudo-intimacy, whereby “colleagues can know so much about each other but can care so little” (Vernon, p. 15).

In this week’s reading material, the following philosophers discuss their views on this topic: Aristotle, Russell, Smith Ferguson, Marx and Simmel. Make sure to incorporate their views as you answer each discussion question. Think about how their views may be similar or different from your own. In at least 250 words total, please answer each of the following, drawing upon your reading materials and your personal insight:

  • To what extent does having friendships in the workplace impact your own level of job satisfaction?
  • Please describe some of your own friendships in a workplace environment and whether you have been able to experience true care and support from your colleagues. What about genuine friendship?
