The Importance Of Workplace Collaboration

Collaboration in the workplace is when two or more people work together through idea sharing and thinking to accomplish a common goal. It is simply teamwork taken to a higher level. With the changes and advancements in technology, such as high-speed internet, web-based programs, file sharing, email and video conferencing, collaboration has become a more productive way of doing things. Our whiteboard paper makes collaboration in the workplace easier. It can stick to any surface in any room and it is 100% reusable which makes sense for the environment. Collaboration incorporates teamwork and several other aspects, such as the following:

  • Thinking and brainstorming ideas to provide solutions
    • This key element brings groups together to offer different perspectives and expertise to solve common problems.
  • A strong sense of purpose
    • Group and individuals who truly collaborate see the value in working together. Collaboration is not forced because there is a meaningful reason for working together and should benefit both parties or the group as a whole.
  • Equal participation
    • Treating everyone as equals when collaborating can open up communication and encourage ideas from all levels of the company or department, not just the managers or directors.
