From the beginning, our company has followed one formula to ensure growth and success. That formula is nothing but, collaboration amongst our employees. We realized that the success of our business depends upon whether our employees and departments are able to work together smoothly. And so, we made sure that every employee who steps into our organization is tutored on the importance of collaboration.
But how do we define collaboration? ‘Collaboration is the act of individuals working together to make unified decisions. When we talk about collaboration in the workplace, this definition extends to team members or colleagues working together and setting processes to make choices that all members agree on for a greater purpose.’
Collaboration is key to our organizational structure and is a crucial part of our achievements. Our employees also understand that working together in teams is much more effective and productive. We promote and encourage collaboration in our workplace regularly to achieve all organizational and personal objectives.
By working at NewAgeSys, all our teams, employees, managers, and leaders have learned the true meaning of a team and why it is the main factor that contributes to personal and organizational growth.
In addition to the above-mentioned points, there are a few other reasons why we at NewAgeSys encourage collaboration in the workplace and they are as follows:
1. Encourages problem-solving:
The first and foremost reason why collaboration is important while working at NewAgeSys is because it promotes problem-solving. We noticed that when people with diverse knowledge and experience come together, the chances of finding a solution to a problem increase. This is because each individual puts in their perspective and input on how to solve the problem at hand and eventually everyone analyses each solution and comes up with an optimal solution without any conflicts and hassles.
2. Increases employee satisfaction levels:
At NewAgeSys, employees are our assets and we ensure that our employees are kept happy and satisfied at all times. And so, we promote collaboration in the workplace as it continuously increases employee satisfaction. By working together as a team, employees feel valued and important and feel like they are a part of something much bigger. This feeling in turn ensures that employees contribute positively to the growth of our organization.
3. Provides a chance for self-analysis:
We ensure that while working at NewAgeSys and collaborating with various teams, employees not only help the organization but also help themselves. Collaboration has challenged our employees to analyze themselves and their competencies on a regular basis. This way, employees receive clarity on their strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities and can choose to build or improve themselves on the basis of this.
4. Develops skills:
We also encourage collaboration at our workplace because it is an excellent way for each employee to boost their skills. Collaboration promotes continuous learning in the workplace that allows employees to improve their strengths and add to their competencies. Employees are also able to understand how to take feedbacks and reviews from other employees in a positive manner and work on them. No two employees have the same ideas and therefore, through collaboration, our employees can come to work and guarantee that they will learn something new every day.
5. Smooth workflow:
As mentioned earlier, collaboration promotes an extremely smooth workflow and ensures that our day-day operations take place without any hassle. Employees working together in teams increases our day-day productivity and contributes to our overall growth. Collaboration also ensures smooth workflow by creating a proper channel for communication. This means that employees know how to delegate work and who to report to as and when a problem arises at work.
Lastly, we at NewAgeSys have understood that simply encouraging collaboration is not enough for the growth of our employees and the organization, we also have to foster collaboration regularly. And so, we follow practices such as encouraging innovation, rewards system, respecting perspectives, and connecting employees to foster collaboration.
We also understand that only talking about collaboration will not lead to success, working together as a team requires patience, hardwork, and a desire to do better. And so, even if we face a few bottlenecks on the way, we will continue to work on them and promote collaboration and continuously make it a part of our organizational culture.
