Employee Communication

My Dad was a high level business executive in the 60's and 70's...

He told me he'd spend good chunks of his day just 'talking/ shooting the breeze' with his salesmen and other staff. This counted as productivity back then.

To what end has the speed and use of technology overrun basic human workplace interaction? My Dad achieved success and results from knowing the people he worked with inside out.

At what point did the 'bottom line' become more important than 'How are you doing today?' And are we any better because of it?

When someone decided that MBAs had value.


And, no, we're not better for it. Nowadays, companies are generally run by people who don't actually know anything about what they do.
