Employee productivity is always a burning issue regardless of any social or financial issues businesses may face. This article by Matthew Lindquist looks at how employee productivity can be affected by their co-workers.

The article is interesting in that it looks not simply at an employee’s own productivity but rather at their effect upon the wider organisation. The article is written quite technically with many references to further research pieces, so if you are unfamiliar with the subject material this read may seem daunting.

The read is worth the effort though, as the article points out that whilst most businesses will look at individual productivity when identifying their most valuable employees, this is not the only factor to consider when seeing who holds your team together.
