Think Carefully About Where You Put the Office Bathroom

Think Carefully About Where You Put the Office Bathroom | Certified Knowledge Manager (CKM) | Scoop.it

"Why the placement of your office bathroom matters."

Dr. Dan Kirsch's insight:

SBP:  Strategic Bathroom Placement.  But it's not truly about where a bathroom is located so much as it is about creating a physical environment that provides ample opportunity for people to interact, and then encouraging and allowing that interaction.  Apple, Google, 3M and others have all turned this concept into an organizational "way of life" but you don't always have to go to that extent to take advantage of the knowledge sharing brought about by socialization.  Little things can help to shape the environment, to nuture the roots of collaboration.  

 

Take for example, "Beer Cart Friday" at Advance Medical (http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2013/03/08/beer-cart-friday/1973789/) where CEO Jennifer Fuicelli uses -- yes, beer as a catalyst for creating a high performing corporate culture.  She's also incorporated costumes on Halloween, cookouts and what she calls a "get out of jail free" card used by employees to receive a paid day off on their birthday.

 

Organizational cultures that support socialization and collaboration create something extremely important -- trust amongst those who you spend a significant chunk of your life with.  Trust and sharing knowledge go hand in hand.  Sharing knowledge and collaboration are what fuel organizations such as Apple, Google and 3M, and it's clearly one critical part of their innovation generating machines.
