According to research, having great relationships is one of the key factors that make people happy at work. Close, trusting, and supportive relationships positively influence an employee’s state of mind and their willingness to contribute to a company’s success.

Bright Side values people who always try to make the world a more positive place. We have prepared a collection of examples of people who took their relationships at work to a completely new level.

1. An ugly sweater competition with the boss

2. “My boss just gave me these socks for Christmas.”

3. When a boss wants to spy on his employees but go unnoticed:

4. “Our boss asked us to make cookies for the Christmas party. Here is the result.”

5. “We made our own Valentine’s Day boxes for work. This is my boss’s.”

6. “2,000 balloons for my boss’s birthday”
