Sociometric Badges

‘People analytics’ is about gathering information on the social interactions of employees in the workplace. Who talks with who, where and how often? This sociometric badge Humanyze, collects this metadata (not the content of these conversations but their occurrences), which can then be correlated with the data generated by the digital communication in an organization such as email, calendars, chats, and location data. When uploaded to the cloud, the collected data is analyzed to measure whether teams are structured for optimal productivity and innovative potential. The results are presented in aggregate as easily digestible, actionable insights for the organization’s decision makers. According to the makers of Humanyze, employee IDs with built-in sensors and internet connectivity will be the norm of future workplaces.
