The effects of remote work on collaboration among information workers
It seems like you are not the only one – a study published in Nature shows that “remote work caused the collaboration network of workers to become more static and siloed”.
Many of us like to work without any external distractions. It is easier to follow this instinct when being physically separated. Silos are likely to evolve.
Focus is good, but the balance between focus and synchronization is important to keep everyone in the loop and spread important information.
A system that fosters asynchronous collaboration allows organizations to crack siloes and enhances the internal information process.
Luckily, using workplace technologies like apps, tools, procedures, software, processes, or an entirely new methodology of getting work done can help ensure good communication – which can eventually lead to better collaboration.
Making sure that your workplace has a healthy culture of teamwork and collaboration is key to staying ahead of the competition and achieving success.
