Lack of collaboration in the workplace can be tremendously detrimental for your company. With employees quoting lack of collaboration for workplace failures, it is partly the responsibility of top executives to acknowledge it as a crucial factor to address. It’s a smart goal, since companies that inspire employees to work collaboratively often see better results.

While it’s easy to talk about inspiring collaboration, making it happen demands three things: a clear understanding of your employee workflows, an actionable plan, and the right environment to inspire collaboration.

It’s important to look at the ways that your workplace is not collaborating. This could go from problems with project management to iterative work in different departments.

Understanding the specific collaboration problems that affect your company will help you identify what needs to be solved and how each possible solution might help.

Once you’ve understood what needs to be fixed and how, it’s time to set up a plan of action. As part of a roll-out of a new collaborative approach, it’s essential to have a plan to ensure meaningful use.

Common Pitfalls Inspiring Collaboration

A common problem holding back collaboration in the workplace is lack of engagement with the environment. If you fail to plan for user adoption, your new office furniture may just sit there gathering dust and the increase in collaboration you wanted may never happen.

Many companies find it helpful to rely on professionals to help with this process. Although top executives and managers know their organization’s own needs, they may not always know the best practices for increasing office furniture user adoption and creating collaborative workplaces.

That’s where our services come in. We’ve partnered with OFGO, one of our manufacturers, to guide many companies in New York toward a more collaborative workspaces with Collaborative Solutions like OFGO Modular Furniture. We understand the common drawbacks that companies trying to inspire collaboration have trouble with.

Fostering Effective Use of Furniture to Inspire Collaboration

Choosing the right modular furniture can mean the difference between increased collaboration and wasted money. Modern companies need to choose a collaborative environment that fits well within their company culture and serves their unique needs.

A huge hindrance to effective collaboration in the workplace is an entrenched office designed. Some offices are so that is so divided that it restricts employees and even whole departments from working together. In some companies, members of the same team are even walled off from each other. How can you inspire collaboration like this?

Companies should ensure their culture inspires and encourages breaking down any impediments to collaboration. An office design of inclusiveness and sharing can help set a company on the path to greater collaboration. As more information flows from managers to employees and between them, employees begin to feel more connected to the company. This creates a workplace environment where sharing and collaboration feels naturally. This can be achieved through the effective use of Modular Furniture.
