Three ways to enable collaboration in your company

Studies predict that half of the UK workforce will be working remotely by 2020, with around 4.2 million Brits already working from home in 2015. But with employees working from different locations and ‘the office’ being wherever you can get a spot with your laptop, how can you ensure your company continues to work collaboratively?

In this post, we’re going to take a closer look at the top three ways that you can enable collaboration in your company.

Three ways to enable collaboration in your company

1. Get everyone on the same page

It goes without saying that everyone within your company needs to be on the same page in order to produce work effectively. But if no one is in the same place, it can be tricky to make sure everyone understands what they need to be doing.

In order to work collaboratively, everyone within the company must understand their role in each project. If, for instance, your marketing and finance teams aren’t in constant communication, you may end up overspending on your upcoming campaigns.

First and foremost, you need to create clear brand guides and project overviews – and provide all employees and teams with access to them. This is a great way to ensure everyone understands exactly where they need to be, even if they don’t come into the office very often!

2. Establish clear business goals

In order to drive success within your business, each member of your team needs to understand the goals of your company and how they can help to achieve these goals. Whether you have individual goals for each team member, or overall focuses for your company as a whole, making your achievements clear within your organisation gives each employee a focus, decreasing confusing and increasing team cohesion.

3. Provide access to assets

One of the tricky aspects of remote working is being able to access all the necessary files and assets you need for a project. When working from home, or the local café, the last thing you want is to set up your working space and order your coffee before realising that you can’t access the files you need, with no one is in the office to help you out.

Fortunately, there is an easy way to avoid this issue. A digital asset management (DAM) system provides a simple-to-use and easy-to-access platform for all employees to access the assets they need for their work.

Cloud-based DAM systems allow users to access files from anywhere in the world, as long as they have a secure internet connection. You can even avoid the unauthorised use of certain files by restricting access to specific metadata tags, keeping everyone focused on their own work without the temptation to check out other projects.
