Organisations are changing the way they work – most now have regional, global and virtual teams working across different projects.
Efficient collaboration is essential to high-performing teams. Your team can quickly become discouraged if they encounter collaboration blockers. Here’s how to avoid them.
The days of employees working in isolation are long gone. Today, collaboration is the key to any organisation’s profitability. In fact, the time that employees spend on teamwork has doubled over the last two decades. More time is spent on collaborative activities like calls, meetings, and checking and responding to emails.
A new workplace culture emerges
Teamwork is critical to business performance and productivity. As a result, teams now span multiple locations and timezones, all while working on the same projects at the same time from multiple devices.
Without addressing the collaboration blockers that teams may face across your organisation, your employees will quickly become frustrated, discouraged or even be left out of the loop on important projects and decisions.
