To increase worker performance, employers often invest in a number of things, from rewards and incentives to education and training. These traditional approaches develop employees’ skills and enrich their work experience. But we discovered a surprisingly simple way to increase productivity, one that was low-cost and had immediate impact: better office seating arrangements.

Research we conducted suggests that who an employee sits next to affects how they perform — and grouping the right types of coworkers together can improve productivity and work quality.

Just like sitting next to a drunk will get you drunk. Abi?
If you like sit beside Don Carlos, if you dont have in you you dont have it in you. You cant give what you dont have no matter where you are sitting.

Most likely but I also think It's a matter of attitude to work.
A person without interest or desire to perform such duty might end up reducing the efficiency of the productive one.
Even, two productive people working closely could strike up envy and subsequently, a fight for dominance (personal interests above company goals). So there is a chance the quest for edficiency could become sidelined.
So, I think it's a matter of attitude.

not always true, a lazy person cannot become a hardworker by merely sitting next to a hard working person.

Op your premise is wrong, if it were correct than taking criminals to the police station would make them police officers.

In saner climes, a lazy person will not get the chance to sit next to a high achiever. But in 9ja tribalism & corruption make it possible.

To the question, in theory it does. BUT it also depends on chemistry.

Some very efficient people can be condescending, full of themselves and not generally pleasant. He or she may not even want you to achieve like them. If that is the kind of person next to you, you will be miserable instead of being productive.

If all is good and work atmosphere is great and you have what it takes, then it will be an inspiration.

grouping the right types of coworkers together can improve productivity and work quality. This I may agree

BUT

A dunce (for example) sitting next to a productive person, in an attempt for him to be more productive, may not really work.
while some people are wise, some are other wise.Our minds and intelligence levels were designed differently.If you are naturally good and productive, you are.If you are not, you are not.Some defects cannot even be remedied, just as some folks are not trainable, and or reformable.

It is true o. I remember one computer woman in school when I was doing my MSC. This woman can read and do assignments for Africa....I mean....when we were paired together for a group work, I started crying. No be small thing. We stayed in the library from sun up to sun down for two days...I couldn't believe myself. Chain...something I would have borrowed book to go and do in my apartment.mtcheew

But what am I saying? Something we were given a deadline of two weeks we finished in 2 days because of the way the woman pushed and pushed and we can.e out really good grade wise

LoL. Exactly. You just took the words off my mouth.

This is the problem most people who work online face especially when they become lax with their work habits and starts spending too much time with lazy peeps. Now we all get to work extra hard to cover up for the lost time.
