The benefits of collaboration
About 75% of employers rate teamwork and collaboration as crucial for a successful business. Employees who work together, solve complex problems more easily, build better relationships, and feel more part of their team. This sense of belonging leads to an increased level of well-being at work. It also improves personal development of every employee involved. By enabling employees to have valuable face-to-face interactions, you can improve collaboration in the office. Technology can help create an interactive workplace and flexibly share facilities.
Create an interactive workplace
The workplace plays an enormous role in stimulating an innovative mindset and providing room for interaction. You can encourage collaboration at work by designing a workplace with different social areas. Think of spaces to learn, socialize, and brainstorm. This so-called activity-based working, enables employees to collaborate more. A well-designed office is nice, but not enough. In order to create a vibrant workplace where collaboration is the norm, you need technology.
Flexibly share facilities
Sharing facilities in the workplace is an effective way to spontaneously meet colleagues. When employees sit next to a different person each day, the silos within your organization will come to an end. Employees will start conversations with colleagues they would normally not have met. Simple conversations can result in great ideas, a project, and eventually innovation.
