Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 11, 2014 11:55 AM

Here's another great article (with a few twists) about the value of  working in proximity to others, and face-to-face interactions -- and the positive impact on both business productivity and profitability.


It's easy to get caught up in technology and working virtually. Yet what we know from studies done since 1977 is that face-to-face communication remains critically important in organizations.


And of course, when you are actually working with people in the same physical environment, conversations and sharing stories happen all the time.


As this article says, physical closeness even boosts virtual communication. Who knew??!!


This latest study was done with wearables over the past 2 years. Lots of big data was collected. Not only did the research confirm that face-to-face communication increased productivity, they also discovered it increased innovation.


Even better, they were able to actually chart how the physical environment (layout and design) of the office spaces either fostered communication, story sharing, and knowledge transfer -- or not.


Read the article for much more in-depth information about the implications of this study on the design of work spaces and the positive impacts for companies. It's a winner!
