The Water Cooler Effect:
The driving force created when two or more employees have an informal, face-to-face conversation.
 
Ideas that come from water cooler conversations may influence new ideas, products, and services. It's a casual way to brainstorm and problem solve. This means that staff members are actually working while talking and sharing different perspectives. 
A research group at MIT has developed innovative methods for examining the impact of workplace socializing. Using special technology, they measured the length and tone of conversations and found that group cohesion was a significant predictor of productivity.

We use smart proprietary connection technology to make introductions within your organization.

It is a highly customizable platform, allowing for custom branding, tailored questions and targeted goal setting.

Connect new hires with mentors, cross-pollinate sales and marketing, break down barriers between junior and senior management.

DO YOU FOSTER AN OPEN CULTURE ?

Employees of organizations with over 15,000 workers typically engage with fewer than 1% of their colleagues. Most of these co-workers are in their own or adjacent departments. Employees who are "engaged and thriving" are 59 percent less likely to look for a job with a different organization in the next 12 months.

Well-Being Enhances Benefits of Employee Engagement as reported by GALLUP

"I felt a little lonely when I joined and had a hard time navigating the departments. Water Cooler has given me the opportunity to connect with super helpful colleagues who have become friends and advocates."
(New Hire in Procurement, Automotive)
"Water Cooler is cool! I meet so many interesting people and sometimes we talk about work and other times it's just fun to meet another cat lover."
(Senior Advertising Director, Healthcare)
"To be honest, I was ready for a new role and had started looking around. Water Cooler came around at the right time - I met with 5 senior directors and decided to go into marketing in another department after a long career in sales."
(Sales Director, Enterprise SaaS)
"Such a cool concept! I love that it gives me the opportunity to get up from my desk and have lunch with someone new or a colleague who I haven't seen in a long time."
(Frontend Developer, Ecommerce)
