Launched in 2017, Microsoft Teams arrived just in time for the age of workplace teams.

However, employees today work with twice the number of teams as they did just five years ago.  This rise in collaboration holds whether you run a Sacramento business or not.  According to a recent study, 80 percent of employee time gets spent collaborating with others.  That’s a full four days of every work week used on collaborative teamwork.

The evolution of the modern workplace drives this uptick in workplace collaboration.  These days, advancements in technology allow workers to freely collaborate and communicate, which achieves results and drives profitability.  Meanwhile, 43 percent of people work at least some of the time remotely.

Unfortunately, if you don’t foster a collaborative environment for your workers, your business grows less agile.  You may find that it takes your business more time to make worse decisions.

Employee Engagement

Over half of U.S. employees say that they do not feel fully engaged in their work.  At first glance, that may not seem like a big deal.  However, this pervasive disconnection could prove detrimental to your bottom line.  Studies show that engaged employees contribute:

  • 17 percent higher productivity;
  • 20 percent higher sales;
  • 21 percent higher profitability.

People like feeling like they are part of a team.  It makes them feel less isolated and fatigued and more engaged and motivated in the workplace.   By becoming one of the 125,000-plus organizations to implement Microsoft Teams, you give your employees the collaboration tools that they need to succeed.  Your employees get integrated Office 365 apps and customization options, while your business gets enterprise security and compliance.
