collaboration, teamwork, team
There is an old saying that “many hands make light work.” That is a primary benefit of collaboration, which helps drive productivity across teams and throughout a company. The result can mean a more efficient workflow that may drive greater cash flow. Whether you have in-house employees, a remote team or a combination of those, a collaborative...
millennials, teamwork
According to a Pew Research Center analysis of 2017 U.S. Census Bureau data, the largest section of the workforce is comprised of millennials, at 35 percent. This population segment is critical for nearly every company’s success, a fact that presents challenges as well as opportunities.

imposter syndrome, frustrated worker, burnout
There are certain things you may have thought or asked that indicate you have some form of career imposter syndrome.

There’s been a trend in recent decades toward open office spaces. This is great for collaborative work because you don’t have to go anywhere to have a quick conversation with your colleagues.

If you’re an entrepreneur in charge of a growing business, you eventually will be required to hire employees. Ideally, these people will take some of the workload off your shoulders, allowing you to focus on meeting with clients and growing the company. Unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned.

The freelancer economy is on the rise, with some experts estimating that 40 percent of the American workforce will work independently by 2020.

In my time working for and writing about startups, I’ve observed that people who deserve a raise the most are often the least likely to ask for one. It seems like every organization has that one workhorse who completes large numbers of tasks but who doesn’t seem to know their own worth. Sometimes people forget...
In every office, break rooms serve as a gathering place for employees to get away from their work for a few minutes.
