Abstract

Our social networks are partially ascribed from the day we are born, escalate into a larger web throughout our lifetime, and can give us a significant advantage in the labour market. Segolene Zeller writes that our social capital becomes an ascribed status, alongside gender, family lineage, and skin colour. Since interacting across social boundaries may be difficult, our social networks tend to lack diversity. She suggests using behavioural science strategies in the design of organisational processes to support employees in creating the necessary change.
