Join Workplace Strategist Erica Keswin for an introduction to the Spaghetti Project. What is The Spaghetti Project? A 2015 study from Cornell University found that eating meals together improved firemen’s performance. Erica was so intrigued by this idea, she started asking people about the ways they connect with their friends and colleagues at work. And as a hats-off to the firemen, she calls her research and homespun huddles The Spaghetti Project.
