Collaboration in the workplace isn’t a new topic. When organisations fail to communicate effectively enough to their staff, they become frustrated, leading to misunderstandings and a decrease in overall staff morale. This can have a detrimental effect and direct impact on everyone from frontline staff to clients. Most organisations in today’s modern world can relate to each other and the difficulties they face regarding the ‘Silo effect’. Productivity suffers because teams and departments within an organisation don’t comunicate effectively enough with each other.
One-third of employees claim that having the ability to collaborate with others, drives their loyalty to their organisation.
Collaborating strengthens your employees’ skillsets, as employees learn from each other and strengthen cross-departmental relationships.
Collaboration within an organisation offers various diverse perspectives for problem solving and sparks innovation.
Employee engagement not only equals a happier workforce it represents an educated one. Having a collaborative workforce will naturally cultivate a sense of community amongst employees, which drives them to go beyond the expectations of their role. They actively want to absorb as much organisational knowledge as they can to ensure they’re viewed as valuable and can assist with important decision making.
