Productivity increases when more people work together more efficiently – it isn’t rocket science. A recent article states that collaboration among employees is strengthened when you “create an environment where team members can easily share knowledge and ideas. This will not only improve individual productivity [but also] project standards and service delivery.”
A major key to creating a successful environment which encourages collaboration entails reducing stress. In fact, a recent Forbes article reports that the World Health Organization estimates that stress costs U.S. businesses approximately $300,000,000,000, as a whole, annually. Here are a few tips to reduce stress in your workplace and encourage collaboration:
- Implement a stress reliever in a central location. If you provide a mini punching bag or squeeze pad somewhere accessible to all your employees, they will start to use it and use it as a diving boar d into conversation and co-worker bond formation. This will lead to an increase in easier collaboration between them.
- Implement a public board for your coworkers to pin “thank yous” on. Allow your workers to post little notes, or letters to each other thanking them for personal or work-related selfless things they have done for each other. For example, covering for someone else, doing extra work for someone, etc. This will bring your co-workers closer together.
- Convert to paperless. Physical paperwork can be very stressful – they’re hard to find, hard to organize, harder to find the paragraph or document you need. These impediments of physical documents can increase stress and make collaboration between employees more difficult. Convert your paperwork to digital files so that you employees can easily send each other the pertinent files in a few nanoseconds via email, or have them all access the same file simultaneously via the cloud. By going paperless, your employees will have an easier time collaborating with each other and will lower their stress levels significantly.
