ABSTRACT
The coronavirus pandemic has led to a surge in virtual work across companies, with many or even all employees working from home for an extended period of time. One of the key unintended consequences of this widespread switch to virtual work is the impact on the relationships and interpersonal networks within organizations. By better understanding how working remotely can damage connections, trust, and cooperation, managers can act to mitigate those effects. One of the biggest drivers of who interacts with whom in organizations is physical proximity - a phenomenon that's been observed from the US Senate to the Google campus. Amazingly, even a distance of a meter or two can make a big difference. When everyone goes virtual, though, employees can no longer casually run into someone in the hallway or one desk over. They do still keep in touch with the people they feel closest to and with coworkers they're required to work with on particular tasks, but with everyone else, the level of interaction is drastically reduced.
