how to access to them?

Postby Tukanja » Fri Dec 03, 2010 11:37 pm

I am at a company I work for. In the lobby, I run into my subordinate employee, who is followed by two guests. I wasn't informed about the visit.
I want to approach and ask who the two gentlemen are. How to access them?

Me: Excuse me, gentlemen.
Me: (to employee) Would you please introduce the gentlemen (to me)?
The employee: These two gentlemen are from Israel; Mr. Eyal and Mr. Benyamin.

Should I introduce myself then or wait for the worker to introduce me to the gentleman.

Should I have asked the subordinate employee to introduce me to them, first, maybe.

Please someone let me know both the proper behaving and the conversation.

Thanks

I think that ideally you'd want the employee to introduce the visitors to you. Since this may not happen, below is a friendly way to get the information you need:

"Hello, who do we have here?"

or

"Hello, how can I help you?"

I think that through the body language of both you and your employee the visitors would realize that you are in charge and that you'd like to know what is going on.
