I have a terrific employee who has a troubling habit of being “touchy” in the workplace. Whenever she is standing next to an employee, she usually touches the person’s arm, hand or shoulder. Recently, I saw her talking to a male employee and she had her hand on his chest. As I noted, she is otherwise an outstanding worker who functions at a high level. So how can I broach this subject, letting her know her touching isn’t appropriate in the workplace, but at the same time not offending her?
