Collaboration: a key approach to organising successful events

17 Aug 2022

There is no doubt that the global COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed how companies operate and do business. Instead of going into the office every day, holding meetings and working closely with one another, many people have been working remotely from home since the start of the epidemic.

With the threat of Covid-19 still looming, we’ve heard that collaboration has been key to reconnect with your team post pandemic. A time to relearn, restructure and recuperate, the need for event professionals to work together to build in flexibility has never been more important.

From embracing online collaborative softwares and communicating with your hosts more efficiently to dealing with last minute Covid illnesses and staff shortages by working together to find creative solutions, there are a number of benefits of working as a team in the post pandemic era.

We’d like to share our top 4 advantages of a collaborative team:

1.     Boosts productivity

Everyone has different strengths and abilities in the events industry so working as a team will help venues learn from each other in a way that enhances communication and drives greater productivity.

2.     Aids problem solving

Collaborative environments improve problem-solving capabilities and creative thinking, subsequently increasing a venue’s ability to adapt in a changing market environment. Given that the event’s industry involves the pulling together of many different facets, multiple inputs are essential for approaching problems and providing solutions.

3.     Saves time

Working in teams enables venues to be quicker and more effective in their work, as compared to venues who work on projects on their own. By brainstorming ideas, skills and expertise, collaboration allows venues to come together towards the achievement of a common goal.

4.     Reduces the workload

With multiple individuals working on a project, the work can be divided up equally and efficiently between those with the time and the expertise to handle specific tasks. Often referred to as the divide and conquer strategy, this significantly reduces the project delivery time.

As we continue to deal with a number of post-pandemic challenges, collaboration has become a necessity and luckily working in a team lends a myriad of benefits.

What do you think? We would love to hear your opinions on collaboration, togetherness, and productivity in the workplace so that together we can empower greater inclusion and stronger cooperation. Head to The Collective to share your thoughts!
