Ensuring everyone is on the same page regarding clients and new marketing strategies is an important aspect of unifying a team. But constant face-to-face meetings in the workplace can actually interfere with the ability of employees to perform their jobs efficiently.
The modern business culture is becoming a more open and collaborative experience. The upcoming generation of workers is not only among one of the most educated, it is also one that favors transparent work duties, expressiveness, and above all, a collaborative work environment. This inclination towards teamwork has influenced subtle changes in communication preferences.
As a marketing manager juggling several different tasks, it’s all too easy to overlook something important or fall behind on contacting vendors. Unfortunately, these challenges can result in wasted time at best and lost business opportunities at worst. Coordinating with other agencies, clients and freelancers on a regular basis and keeping projects and events running smoothly requires efficient workflow management.

Yet this is often what team members find themselves doing in order to retrieve that glimmer-of-light idea recalled from a previous meeting or correspondence.
