How should I tactfully ask visitors to sign in and wear a badge? — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Question: “I am the receptionist for a large assisted living facility. Visitors
must sign in at the reception desk and then wear a visitor badge.
People do not like this and have told me it’s none of my business who
they are or why they want to visit. I explain that it is for the
visitor’s safety as well as that of our residents. Any ideas or
suggestions how best to handle this?” — Gwen O’Brien
