Few people work entirely alone these days, and it’s pretty rare to find someone who has never had to work as a team. But have you ever worked as a member of an interdisciplinary team? Have you ever brought something to the table – skill, knowledge base, or experience – that others did not have?
At iHire, being collaborative is one of our core values because of our diversely talented workforce:
“We are active and connected members of the company and our teams, working together to achieve common goals. Face-to-face when possible, we contribute, listen, process, learn, create, and share information to advance each initiative and achieve success.”
We pride ourselves on being one solid team, regardless if that team crosses department lines. We are all working toward the same common goal! Our individual contributions are made by listening, learning, and creating. With so many different backgrounds and experiences, why not share our knowledge with others to improve and achieve success?
According to the Chess Media Group, there are 12 principles of collaboration:
Here is my take on those 12 principles:
Collaboration not a new concept by any means. Companies like Google have been operating in this manner for years and many employers are following in their footsteps. We know now that by embracing an amazing company culture to include the value of collaboration leads to employee engagement and retention. Every employee knows and understands their importance and contribution to the overall organization.
