Overcoming Social Barriers to Collaboration

February 26, 2015 | By Mike Ryan

There is no debating the economic advantages of employee collaboration. Companies with collaborative teams outperform rivals across every meaningful measure from organizational productivity to worker satisfaction. Yet, when it comes to establishing (and maintaining) a collaborative work environment, many organizations feel they can do better.

How can companies strengthen teamwork and do so across all employee populations where social challenges can create barriers?

In this month’s Performance Perspective, Mike Ryan explores:

  • Why a company’s ability to collaborate is a significant advantage over competitors

  • Why social recognition is a must
