Despite the fact that communication with customers and information flow between coworkers are among the most crucial aspects of any business, until today there hasn't been any objective, scalable way to capture that information. Using cutting-edge wearable sensing technology, we will discuss how people communicate with each other in the real and virtual world and how their communication patterns impact happiness, individual performance, and organizational success.

 

In this presentation, you will learn how behavior and organizational initiatives can be measured both scalably and reliably.
