New research reveals essential elements to effective collaboration
Whether we work in a co-located or distributed team, more and more of our work today is carried out online – the digital workspace exists for all of us, regardless of our physical one. However that very digital workspace lives within a unprecedentedly noisy and distracting online environment.
Despite the plethora of tools designed to help us collaborate and connect, today’s knowledge workers face new challenges when it comes to being focused and productive. New research from GoTo by LogMeIn published recently revealed that the 2,000 employees they surveyed face continual distraction and competing demands on their attention, leading to a tendency to multitask at all times – blending personal and work activities on multiple apps and devices.
