Without effective streams of communication, it is expected that teams will lack consistency and efficiency. A simple concept that is often overlooked by so many companies. Productive communication not only allows for clarity in one’s own role, but also helps in understanding the position of others within the team.
The understanding, key values, and long term vision of the company is imperative for an employee to feel connected to the job and the company itself. If the employee doesn’t believe in the underlying mission of the role they have taken, then there is a huge barrier between the company’s expectations and what the employees will deliver. This leads to inconsistencies within teams at the workplace.
Communication is Imperative for Productivity
The importance of collaboration continues to shine through in company performance year after year. At the end of the day if communication is not a part of a company’s strategic alignment, it’s only a matter of time before the organization will begin to face repercussions.
According to NYTimes, telecommuting is fast on the rise. It has risen 79% between 2005 and 2012 and now makes up approximately 3.2 million workers, according to statistics from the American Community Survey. As more businesses allow employees to work remote from cafes or the comfort of their homes, the need for collaboration tools is only increasing.
Taking this in regard, it is safe to say that a cohesive platform is crucial especially when you need to connect with multiple employees on a multi level team. This is where our specifically designed collaboration platform comes in. Convo brings consumer tools to the enterprise, enabling fast, flexible and secure communication and collaboration throughout an organization, helping everyone work to their optimum.
