Google has recently been named -- for the fourth time -- the best place to work, according to Fortune magazine. The company is considered to be providing the good life for its employees. The company offers privileges and perks to its employees that workers at most other companies can only envy. But what may seem like luxuries are actually good business and Google can prove that because the company studies everything it does. For more on this story, check out the "CBS This Morning" report.

The work spaces are extensively tested, from floor to ceiling. Diner booths, it turns out, can work better than traditional conference rooms, according to Google.
Bock said, "Casual collisions are what we try and create in the work environment. You can't schedule innovation, you can't schedule idea generation and so when we create our facilities around the world we're really looking for little opportunities for engineers or creative people to come together."
The designs are to help employees, according to one Google representative, Laszlo Bock, head of Google's People Operations Department. He said of one conference space, "The idea behind this is the employees should own their individual space, be as creative as possible and we shouldn't get in the way."
