What would you think of enforced hugging at work?

I wasn't quite sure which forum to put this into but as its work-related have put it in this one as it kind of fits around the socialising at work issue.

Social dynamics at work can be quite tricky as it is, but what if your boss was making you hug him/her as per this article. I've also shared on another site.

One time I worked somewhere and the "boss" made this girl kiss him. Or rather he forced herself on her and kissed her on the cheek and you could tell she was feeling very bad... It was a molestation. This girl was very attractive and he was constantly going on about her and at some point the guy apparently stopped caring about her feelings and kissed her. It was awful. This (married) guy I think was some kind of sociopath…

Anyway, I'm not fond of this hugging idea. It's creepy.

No-one has the right to do that. Its your body, personal rights and boundaries. You can politely decline, and have every right to do so. 'No thank you' is fine.

That is so creepy

Just plain wrong. Simple as that really.

The link took me to a business page.

I think it would be wrong to force someone to hug you. I would feel the boss has other motives if he made it a rule that everyone has to hug him. Enforced hugging sounds more like forced hugging.

That sounds severely wrong. I feel sorry for her. Sexual harassment sucks. This whole incident reminded me of this.  😩

@RiRi I remember seeing that a while ago… That guy is a sicko. It's very upsetting.

It's wrong and I wouldn't do it. It's an invasion of body space and privacy, and open to abuse. Bad idea.
