In order to understand how employees experienced their workgroups, a set of questions were asked regarding their work interdependence and social interaction. Questions such as "how much do members of your workgroup depend on other workgroup members for help or assistance to do their work" examined the nature of the employee's work group and the interdependence of work within the work group. Work Interdependence was reported to be moderate across all campuses and job categories, with the Duluth campus reporting the lowest levels of work interdependence.
Social interaction was assessed through questions such as "How often do members of your workgroup spend breaks or lunch socializing with one another?" Employees across campuses and job categories indicated moderate levels of social interaction within their workgroups with the Crookston campus reporting the lowest levels.
