Workplace collaboration is not a new concept, but it’s gained new prominence in recent years, as modern cloud-based business tools like Clarizen have reinvented the way we work. While organizations once struggled to connect employees in different departments, business units or office locations, employees can now collaborate in real time around the globe.

benefits of collaboration

Companies that were quick to recognize the value of collaboration are now enjoying a wide range of benefits, from improved quality to higher workplace morale. Organizations that have lagged behind are putting themselves at a disadvantage, both for winning new business and for attracting top employees.

Here, we’ll take a quick look at some of the most significant benefits of improved workplace collaboration. If you’re already using Clarizen to connect your teams, these will certainly look familiar. If you’re considering implementing an online collaboration tool for your organization, consider this a sneak peek at the benefits you can expect to see.

Increased Efficiency

One of the most obvious advantages of online collaboration is that it lets team members stay in contact throughout the day, without the need to step away for conference calls or meetings. Collaboration also makes it easier for team members to pass along information to colleagues in other time zones, allowing work to continue on an almost continuous basis.

More Personal Connections Between Team Members

Online collaboration often has a more relaxed feel to it, even when team members are hard at work. Coworkers are more likely to share details of their lives outside of work, which helps them form a more personal connection, which in turn helps minimize conflict and inspire teamwork.

Greater Flexibility in Building Teams

When you have a robust collaboration tool like Clarizen, you can create your project teams based on the criteria that matter most, like skill sets and availability, rather than focusing on issues like office space and geographic location. Cloud collaboration tools let employees and external partners work together in harmony, even when they’re on opposite sides of the globe.
