    How to be friends with your employer

    Obviously it is not necessary to be best friends with your employer, and this is actually more likely to cause problems in the office than not getting on with them at all. However, you should make the effort to be friendly with your employer at the very least, as an employer that likes you will make far more of an effort with you if something goes wrong, or if you have a problem that only they can solve. Here are some tips for getting to be friendly with your employer, so that you have a better rapport than you have in the past.

    • Be polite. Always remember that your employer is above you in the hierarchy of your workplace, and be polite and courteous with them. There is nothing wrong with having a joke with your employer, but get too informal and you actually risk damaging the relationship rather than building on it.
    • Make time for them. Just as they need to make time for you, you should make time to talk to your employer and get some one on one time. This may begin as talking about your job, what you are struggling with and so on, but if you make these chats regular they should soon become more friendly.
    • Include your employer. If everyone is going out for a drink after work, ask your boss to come along as well. Leaving them out all the time further solidifies the fact that they are separate from the rest of you, and does not promote friendship.
    • Respect their position. Even if you are friendly with the boss, you shouldn’t expect them to be on your side for everything, or to make special allowances for you. Respect their job as well as thei friendship and your relationship should blossom.
