Workplace: Elevator or Stairs

Take the elevator or the stairs? That is a reasonable workplace question. The elevator may or may not be faster, depending on the number of floors you are moving between. Elevator rides can be great for networking – unless your building culture is to never speak while on the elevator. Taking the stairs is great for building your own strength and stamina, as well as providing personal contemplation time. Metaphorically, the question of taking the elevator or the stairs prompts these workplace and team productivity questions.
