Colaboration is the future

Two major trends are affecting the way that we work. On the one hand there is a growing push for collaboration and team-based working. On the other is the desire to enable remote working, with both business leaders and employees keen to embrace the benefits that remote working enables. Employers and managers can leverage remote working to free their employees to be more mobile and globally dispersed. Employees appreciate the ability to work with increased efficiency, as well as the preservation of work/life balance. On the surface of things, it would seem that these two trends are at odds with one another – work is becoming less tied to centralizing staff in an office, and yet it’s also demanding that staff work more closely together. The only way to address that apparent divide is by enabling collaboration, which can be achieved through robust collaboration technology, such as the new Microsoft Surface Hub 2S.

More than 50% of work done today is accomplished through collaboration1. Work is becoming more complex and bringing teams together to approach the complexity of work in a creative and productive manner, is key for the success of the company.

Collaboration is also something that smart, forward-thinking companies encourage as a way of building a diversity of ideas within an organisation and helping the development of skillsets and knowledge of employees.

The three principle benefits of collaboration -- and the reason that targeting collaboration is becoming such a core component to a successful organization -- can be broken down as:


A collaborative team comes up with solutions quicker than an individual could. Furthermore, by breaking a workload down into teams it’s possible to get multiple objectives within a task done simultaneously, resulting in a faster completion time.


When working in a team, a person becomes acutely aware of their strengths, and areas for improvement. Having a diverse range of people and backgrounds also helps expose people to different ideas and ways of thinking. By working with people with expertise in areas separate to their own, an individual gains access to new knowledge and capabilities.

Greater Job

Being part of large projects helps foster a sense of community and team spirit, creating internal “evangelists”, which in turn helps companies with employee retention and job satisfaction. With the skills market being as constrained as it currently is, retention rates are at the top of mind for many executives.
