Study: Americans have fewers friends at work

Hot topic

A new study has found fewer Americans have a close friend at work and they don't view workplace friendships as a priority like they once did. 

Experts have said work friends can actually boost productivity and help manage stress, so that's the downside of the study. 

Psychologist Dr. Cooper Lawrence said this trend could be symptomatic of the quicker turnover many people now experience. They don't want close friendships because they move around.

Do you think workplace friendships are healthy?
