Collaboration leads to a more engaged and innovative workforce, however it's still not a priority within a lot of companies today.
Getting everyone involved with decisions making can help projects to run more efficiently and creates a workforce full of team players. Working collaboratively creates a buzz within the office and a culture of staff who enjoy coming to work, leading to a more productive team. Collaboration is a process which involves everyone sharing their individual knowledge, utilising their own skills and experience as well as those of the rest of the team leading to a better project outcome.
Most of us may want to work smartly but this isn't always easy.
From emails pinging on our smartphones late at night, to being asked to attend a meeting two hours' drive away, events can often conspire to overwhelm us.

We have been putting our environmental and community values into action at one of the UK's busiest beaches.
Over 60 of our people plus family members and friends took part in the first-ever Banner Beach Clean at Scarborough's South Bay. It was fabulous effort by all involved, the teams worked up and down the beach and the surrounding area and collected over 28 kgs of plastic, glass and assorted waste from the North Yorkshire beauty spot.
This was a great way to put our commitment to local communities and the natural environment into action, with the beach clean running from 11am in the morning until 3pm in the afternoon.
The lure of warmer weather makes most of us want to spend more time outdoors.
But if, like most of the population, you're at work most days, you may need to think not just about what you'll be doing when the weekend comes around, but how you can make the most of summer in your workplace.
Making work an appealing environment when the sun is shining outside is great for motivation, puts smiles on faces and helps everyone stay productive.
There are also common-sense reasons for thinking about what your workplace needs in the summer, from minimising infection risk to safeguarding against dehydration.
Here are five ways you can score a workplace win in the summer months:
