Leveraging Data Analytics to Drive a Collaborative
Call it the paradox of the connected workforce: If it is easier than ever to connect with others then why is it so challenging to collaborate and get things done? Much of our time is spent communicating with others in meetings, on the phone and via email, yet we often have little return to show for that substantial investment. Data shows that employees are suffering from collaborative overload, while many top performers often do little to help their colleagues. At the same time, developing a strong workplace culture is still viewed as more of a mystery than an established practice supported by analysis and insights. Reb Rebele shows how organizations can use data and analytics to create and support a strong collaborative culture that drives greater results.
