PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Have you ever been approached with a two-cheek kiss? Well, if you didn’t expect it, it’s totally awkward, made worse if the timing is mismatched.
It’s those kinds of greetings that has made companies think twice about physical contact in the workplace. So where does that leave handshakes?
A survey by TotalJobs found that three out of four people want all physical contact banned at work. The idea is to remove confusion over what kind of touch is appropriate.
Some companies are now considering whether they should prohibit handshakes.
“I think that’s going a little too far. I’ve never had a problem with it,” one woman said.
“I think it’s a show of mutual respect,” said one man.
