As we all know, A water cooler effect is a phenomenon, occurring when employees at a workplace gather around the office water cooler and chat. It is a synonym for gathering and connecting people in a certain environment.

However, our Accountant caught wind and put us straight .Anyone know of any tricks done that have worked to get to be allowed to watch a major sporting event in the office, please post on the blog. Our advice to any girls in the office, watch those blokes in the office who all of a sudden near the start of the World Cup start volunteering to lift the water bottle onto the water dispenser machine, they may have ulterior motives, watch them like a hawk.

There is clearly a need in today’s digital age to find better ways to work across distances. The problem is not about transmitting information more quickly or cheaply: in a moment’s notice, we can have a video chat with someone in London, Amsterdam or San Francisco. The problem is that it is just as easy to disconnect from the conversation once the business at hand has been completed. What we’ve lost are the discoveries we made while we were in search of something else, walking in the hallway, waiting in lunch line or standing by the water cooler.

If you lead a team that works at a distance, one of the most important things that you can do is arrange for your staff to connect and speak to each other on what is traditionally seen as ‘non-work related’ topics.

Actually, now with the development of technology and culture itself, the possibility of the same office watching the same series last night is extremely small, and the water dispenser effect is disappearing.
