READ­ERS WRITE IN Fa­mil­iar­ity helps peo­ple to bond. Women who work in an en­vi­ron­ment char­ac­terised by friend­ship and laugh­ter are more cre­ative and less stressed. This trans­lates to bet­ter pro­duc­tiv­ity and in­creased in­no­va­tion. Monthly lunches and of­fice par­ties help one dis­cover like-minded peo­ple. At times one must make de­lib­er­ate efforts to un­der­stand their peers as these are the peo­ple you in­ter­act with on a day-to-day ba­sis. Sreshti Verma, Delhi Most women face spe­cific ob­sta­cles when at­tempt­ing to climb the cor­po­rate lad­der. While it is not nec­es­sary to hang out with your co-work­ers round the clock, it wouldn’t hurt to have a cor­dial re­la­tion­ship for a healthy work en­vi­ron­ment. An un­sup­port­ive at­mos­phere of­ten catal­y­ses jeal­ousy and com­pet­i­tive­ness. Mu­tual trust among women at work­place can cre­ate a sense of se­cu­rity and pos­i­tiv­ity. Anusha Raichur, Ban­ga­lore With fe­male em­ploy­ees be­ing more vul­ner­a­ble to work­place ten­sion, chat­ting over lunch and hav­ing a lighter mo­ment with col­leagues are more than just pleas­ant dis­trac­tions. Bond­ing with co-work­ers is more than just hav­ing fun at work; it in­duces a sense of mu­tual ad­mi­ra­tion. Ruby Khosla, Farid­abad
