Thanks to technology, people can work from just about anywhere. For the most part, that’s a win-win for employees and companies alike. Productivity tends to increase, and employees appreciate the ability to balance work with life. But there are legitimate reasons for encouraging employees to work onsite. For example, people collaborate better when they can meet face-to-face when inspiration strikes. The problem then becomes how do you encourage people to come onsite while still promoting work-life balance?
In many industries, collaboration has become a competitive advantage. By coming together and sharing their limited view of the market, customers, and the company, employees can achieve a greater perspective that can lead to creative thinking and innovation. Working together, employees can come up with more efficient processes, new revenue streams, and product improvements that add to the bottom line.
