If productivity is a proven byproduct of connectedness and collaboration within the culture, how can organizations work to cultivate this kind of environment?

Streamlined technology is the catalyst for productivity.

Sadly, most remote workers do not currently feel connected or collaborative in their current environment. A recent study looking at the impact of remote work since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic found that roughly 54% of respondents said their primary challenge in working from home was feeling disconnected or alone.

It’s easy to look to technology as a panacea for productivity woes, but rapid uptake of fragmented communications tools in recent months hasn’t led to sustainable improvement. There’s a reason many of us continue to feel like we’re working on remote islands, despite access to several communications apps across our devices.
The problem is not that those communications tools don’t work, it’s that they don’t work together. When faced with an overflowing home screen of apps, employees are bound to get overwhelmed, becoming more frustrated and disconnected. The truth is businesses can’t just add more disjointed communications and collaboration tools and expect productivity to increase.

To create a real culture of connectedness that fosters productivity, it’s time to unify that toolset and eliminate app confusion. By bringing the technology together, you’ll set the business up to naturally increase productivity, much like basketball drills become the tightly knit fabric of the team’s skill set. The tools become less of the focus, and instead you are left with a ripple effect of strong communication and engagement flowing throughout your organization. Distance melts away as you naturally feel connected to employees that may be sitting 50, 500, or 3,000 miles away.

A single platform for communications, collaboration, and contact center empowers your employees to operate more independently and more productively. Unifying these tools also provides greater organizational transparency simplifies the management, monitoring, and tracking of a dispersed workforce to understand the dynamics that contribute to productivity.
