ALBANY CITY CENTER: SOCIAL ERGONOMICS IN WORKPLACE DESIGN
How understanding social ergonomics helps us initiate and regulate social interaction through workplace design by considering factors like personal space, physical and psychological proximity, and territoriality.
Social ergonomics impacts corporate culture. Over a 10-year period, companies that focused on culture had a return on investment that was more than triple the ROI of companies in the S&P 500. In the United States, workplace stress costs an estimated $200 billion a year in lost productivity, absenteeism, and worker’s compensation. Planning for social ergonomics can help reduce the amount of stress and associated costs. Workplaces that encourage social interaction foster close work friendships, which boost employee satisfaction by 50 percent. People with a best friend at work are seven times more likely to engage fully in their work and are more likely to stay at a job. An international study commissioned in 2012 by Google found an 81 percent correlation between collaboration and innovation. A person’s ability to effectively collaborate is affected by social ergonomics.
