What happened to eye contact ?
Yesterday I took a walk around to take questions about flu shots and was mortified that several of the employees never took their eyes off their computer screens when I spoke with them.
This is an office, not an operating room or airport control tower. Employees can take a second to look at someone when talking to them.
I also noticed in our company meetings, employees are staring down into their phones texting instead of looking at the speaker.
Is eye contact passe? Are simple good manners gone, too?
