Collaboration Fatigue: Finance Matters

August 2, 2018

Every great organization encourages teamwork and collaboration, and for good reason:  the rewards in productivity and morale are great.  As workplaces become more and more collaborative, though, there's something we should watch out for:  collaboration fatigue.  Did you know that 20 - 35 % of all value-added collaboration comes from just 3-5 % of employees?  That can put some employees on the path to burnout while leaving a significant portion of the workforce untapped.  Patty and Brandi discuss this topic with guest Jessica Rafter, UBI Community Manager.
