I’m not the biggest proponent of hand shaking, but seems like a sensationalist headline to say it will NEVER happen again

like

It 100% will happen again. In fact I’ll have to consciously remind myself not to when I finally meet someone in person again. But if this starts us down a path of not making it an expectation of business interactions, that’s a good thing.

Always so awkward at the beginning end of pitch meetings when 20 people need to shake hands with each other. I welcome this change.

Thank god. Please also stop the hugging and face kissing greetings. Sometimes it gets really weird when I meet a guy and I wonder whether I should go for it not not for it because who knows how he would take it.

I hate shaking hands. I really hope this makes people stop doing it. And I’m not a hugger. My close friends and family know this and respect it. Why do casual acquaintances want to hug me? Just stop all ready. If you aren’t my husband or dog, I don’t want to hug you. If someone tried to kiss me, I’d probably smack them. Two feet of personal space for me once things get back to normal, although I’d be fine with keeping it at 6.

PwC4 - totally with you. Not hugging anyone other than my parents, husband and dog. No desire to hug, or be hugged by, my clients or coworkers.

Awkward elbow bumps anyone?

As a former LEO I am always uncomfortable shaking hands. Old habits die hard.

D1 - Jk, thanks for your service!

Lol we literally kiss each other where I live, little smooch on each cheek 😙 And sometimes a guy thinks he’s funny and twists his head to get it on the lips, which is generally followed by a fist-to-face greeting

Shaking hands is fine. Just dont touch your face afterwards 🤷‍♂️

But if we don't shake hands anymore, I can no longer stink-palm my enemies :(

Hey mummas, I'm struggling with how I feel about my team at work. None of them, including my manager, have children and they just don't get it. I'm pregnant with my third and my manager has never once asked me how I'm doing, only ever refers to it in terms of me 'leaving' for maternity leave so he'll be a resource down. Never once asked how I'm coping with juggling wfh & full time caring for my children through covid, and icing on the cake my baby just recently.. (continued in comment)

I'm so thankful that EY has not made the Covid19 Vaccination a condition of employment and they allow work from home to remain an option. Such a great employer. I don't want the government or my employer to dictate what happens to my body, we must always have freedom of choice. That is one of the things that makes US a wonderful place to live. To all who received the vaccine I'm happy you had that option. I will wait a few years until there is enough vaccine data before I put it in my body.
