Teamwork is everything in the modern workplace.

Managers and employees spent at least 50 percent more time on teamwork over the last two decades.  Currently, workers use 80 percent of their time on collaborative activities like meetings and calls.  However, one of the top five reasons that people quit their jobs is because their work environment did not encourage teamwork.

Meanwhile, Millennials make up 57 percent of the workforce, and they expect the ability to collaborate in real-time.  With a diverse workforce, you get a diverse set of needs.  In this new work culture, employees expect the freedom and mobility to collaborate anywhere at any time.

Of course, if you don’t implement the right collaboration tools, you are leaving teamwork blockers in place in your organization.  In the eBook linked below, you will learn tools and strategies to improve collaboration.  “Unblocking Teamwork” identifies four common teamwork blockers.

  • Too many tools on a single team causing “productivity bottlenecks.”
  • Inefficient virtual meetings due to “technology mishaps.”
  • Lengthy feedback and revision process caused by a “lack of version control.”
  • A disorganized and inconsistent set of apps.
