Persuasive Intent
Last fall, consulting firm Deloitte redesigned its office in St. John’s, Nfld., to boost collaboration among employees. To test whether the new layout was actually achieving its goal, Deloitte teamed up with a Boston-based firm called Humanyze to outfit each employee with a smart badge—a rather conspicuous device resembling a smartphone and worn on a lanyard—that tracked their movements and how often they spoke to one another. The devices essentially gave the analytics team at Deloitte a heat map of office activity.
