Should We Be Allowed ‘Personal’ Conversation At Work? [POLL]

Employees at Flushing Township in Michigan are upset about a measure to cut down on idle chatter at work.   This past July, the town adopted a new policy that requires all the employees of the town to only talk about business matters during the work day. 

It’s in effect from the time they check in until they clock out, with the exception of their lunch break.   Many of the Flushing Township workers are now voicing their unhappiness about the ban on small talk.   They say it has really hurt morale.

We talked about this on the FUN Morning Show today, and there was a mixed reaction.  One listener said that it’s the most ridiculous thing she has ever heard, and that she would quit a job if that were company policy.   Another told us that she has a co-worker who talks about her personal life constantly, so she would welcome a “no personal conversation” policy.
