A Good Excuse to Touch Base

Nicole Biggart, professor at UC Davis’ Graduate School of Management, says separate spheres of ideology in the workplace arose with industrialization and was a way of ensuring the employer got full attention. But new studies are showing that engagement can stimulate the workplace, “We want full engagement of the workers’ emotions on the job, their whole person, not just hands and backs. So, work as family and friends,” said Biggart.
