In one of his most recent blogs, “3 Ways to Inspire More Collaboration at Your Company,” Avaya blogger Matt Young describes several techniques to help you improve collaboration within your Baltimore business.
“With big companies, the impulse to put on blinders and stick to your basic responsibilities can be strong,” said Young. “It doesn’t have to be that way, and each person may have a piece of the puzzle a company is trying to solve in their metaphorical pocket. The key is good communication.”
In today’s business world, with its open offices and constantly evolving technology, collaboration is the name of the game. It is not enough to have good employees. You want those employees to work well together. Business is a team effort. This is why organizations are redesigning their offices to promote collaboration. It is also why businesses are investing in technology that helps them better collaborate.
