Today’s work style becomes more and more mobile and diverse, yet collaboration is still a key factor to success.
Some research shows these facts and stats about collaborative working:
1. The mere presence of other people can boost your performance
Social psychologist Floyd Allport’s research showed energy of other people can act as a substitute team even if we’re working solo.
However, when completing a difficult or new task, our performance level decreases and we tend to do more poorly, so choose wise what tasks to do in what circumstances.
2. Prevent failures
A massive 96% of executives cite ineffective communication as the reason for workplace failures.
Also, researchers in Australia found that a person working alone has a 59% chance of successfully completing a series of critical tasks. However, the likelihood of success jumps to 99.9% based on a team of three subject matter experts working together—with one person completing tasks and the other two supporting the work along the way.
3. Creative input
People who work in a team are more creative, productive and confident. Decades of scientific research have revealed that great creativity almost always springs from collaboration, conversation, and social networks—challenging our mythical image of the isolated genius.
4. The best teams communicate outside of formal meetings
Researchers at MIT have found conversations outside of formal meetings are the most important factor that contributes to team success.
5. Employee retention
Feeling connected makes 63% of people more likely to stay with their existing employer
