By: Lana Bawaneh

In a business world that is growing quickly, organizations need to keep up with this rapid development and expand their work by producing various products and services in order to grab more potential clients from different industries. One of the most essential elements in creating a healthy work environment is team management.

In any company, teams need to be defined clearly based on their missions; and communication between the different teams, as well as between members of the same team, needs to be smooth and positive.

This article briefly describes what a collaborative workforce looks like, and also gives you some tips that may guide you in building a healthy work atmosphere full of creativity and innovation.

Tips for a healthy collaborative and successful work environment

Easy and Smooth Recruitment Process
Finding the right team members for your team can be difficult, but it’s crucial to your project’s productivity, on the other hand, having a digitalized system that simplifies the recruitment process will save time and efforts for both – candidates and companies. Going through a smooth and structured recruitment process will reflect a good image for the company.
Immediate Onboarding Process
Having everything ready for the new teams will make them get into the work environment easily and rapidly! Using a system that does all of this will make work super easy! Organizing an employee onboarding process not only impresses new employees but also reduces the workload of the HR team. 
Payroll Management
Maintain a steady and regular financial process is very important for organizations because managing payroll is one of the most crucial tasks. Having a system that manages payroll will definitely lower or even dispose of errors. 
Team Management
Orchestrating the team perfectly requires professional skills in order to steer the team towards achieving the end goal. This doesn’t only mean coordinating the process that will meet the objectives within its required criteria and timeframe, but it also means having to consider the individuals involved.   
Project Management 
Project management basically is the act of determining project tasks, creating schedules, assigning resources, identifying and tracking issues and risks. Throughout a project management system, you can have a flexible, PMI-based framework for managing projects in different industries, and enable organizations to elevate and optimize project management practices and activities.         
Tasks Management
Effective task management requires managing all aspects of a task, including its status, priority, time, human and financial resources assignments, notifications and so on. A successful tasks management can help either individual achieve their goals or groups of individuals collaborate and share knowledge for the accomplishment of collective goals.

Employee Self Service System
Having the teams manage their own services is a big advantage for companies. It reduces the workload of the human resources team. With Employee Self-Service Portals, employees can perform a number of HR-related activities saving their organization's time, cost and efforts. For example, employees can view and update their personal information, view their payroll-related data and submit vacation and leaves requests.               

Complete Summary and Reporting 
Project summaries and reports ensure that the objectives of the project are being met by monitoring and measuring progress regularly to determine variances from the plan. It is also a great way for project managers to keep track of a project’s progress and also help them identify risks and other challenges that need to be addressed.               

Notifications Engine 
Having a notifications engine will ensure all of your to-dos are in tasks and ensure that you can keep track of the deadlines associated with them. Moreover, it can help you stay on top of what's coming when things are due and you have a lot on your plate.

Tracked Activities
Keeping your work and activities tracked you can build up an accurate picture of what you do during the day, and how you invest your time, it also helps you to understand whether or not you're doing your most important work during the right time of day. Integrated team software platforms are a great way to boost teamwork and establish an efficient collaborative work process. Take a look at our whitepaper on the subject here.
