dc.description.abstractFriendships in the workplace have been shown to lead to greater job satisfaction and commitment to the job, but forming friendships in the workplace may be harder for some individuals than others. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the friendships people make in the workplace and to determine if friendships at work impact job satisfaction, job commitment, and overall wellbeing, looking particularly to see if these factors differ by gender or among gay, lesbian, bisexual, and heterosexual people.
