A new program, called PROXIMITY, was created as a tool for proximity calculation and to update and expand upon Kirste and
Monge’s (1983) PROXTIME program. The purpose of PROXIMITY is to calculate the fluctuating proximity between individuals within
organizations. PROXIMITY provides output for three types of relationships: (1) an overall organizational proximity, (2) pairwise
proximity between individuals, and (3) individual proximity to multiple others. PROXIMITY also updates some of PROXTIME’s
features such as the computer platform, the type of data the program can handle, and the form of output available.
