When thinking about the biggest factors influencing rapid company growth, building relationships and networking sit at the top of the list. Recently, Nudge.ia based out of Canada has run a study on the correlation that exists between companies being well networked and their success.

This Canadian company has measured something they call “relationship intelligence,” in which factors such as an employee’s work relationships and relationships with other companies are looked at. Analysis is performed on machine learning data of employee communications through email, social media, and other means of collaboration.

Not surprisingly, many Utah tech companies and startups rank high on Nudge.ai’s list, including firms like Qualtrics, Workfront, Vivint, Instructure, Overstock.com, Domo, Pluralsight, and more. As quoted by Nudge.ai’s Co founder: “Relationships are the key factor to building a successful modern business.” Companies in the Salt Lake area ranking high on this new measure of relationship intelligence shows how well set up for success many of these firms are.

At Kiln, members are encouraged to grow their "relationship intelligence". With Kiln’s collaborative workspaces, interacting with employees of other companies and networking becomes much easier and can have a huge impact.
