linked and social networks

I’m wondering is there a measurable way to see if adding a bit more social interaction to a network of colleagues increases productivity.

We all know meeting work colleagues for beers or going on a weekend trip can make you undertand your co-worker more and allow you to become more tolerant of that person.

I wonder how you could do this though with people you will not meet for years and might not even be in telephone contact ?

I’ll add this question to my things to ponder list..
