How to Ensure Communication Keeps Flowing in Your Teams

It’s easier than you may think!

Anyone who has ever been in a relationship will probably relate to the fact that communication is key.  Well, the same rule applies to your relationship with your employees, your colleagues and their relationships with each other. Without communication, there can be no team.

A 2016 LinkedIn survey concluded that American employers ranked communication as the most critical soft skill for employees, with a 57.9% vote! But what does this mean for you and your teams today?


Fostering Communication in Teams

With millennials joining the job force and most companies now offering flexible or completely remote working options, workplace communication needs to evolve considerably. We may still be in the early days of our new understanding of best communication skills at work, but several (pretty incredible) platforms and technologies have already made a huge impact. 

Google Workspace has made its mark in the business and educational industries. With the flexibility offered to its users, even smaller companies are jumping at the opportunity to make use of the improved communication options that it offers. What Skype and Facetime are to long-distance lovers, Google Workspace is to you and your long-distance team.

Jump online at any time, from any device, and have instant access to your team members. Not only can you communicate in real-time, but you can also leave messages and notes for each other. As if that wasn’t awesome enough, all team members also have complete and constant access to ongoing projects. The beauty of Google Workspace is its ability to empower teams to work together as if they are in the same room or office environment.  

Just as the world was being pulled apart, new ways were invented and developed to keep us together.  



In a relationship, the people are the most important aspect, and communication is the oil that greases the wheel. The same applies to your business. Google Workspace allows you to experience the natural flow of energy, work and synergy that you would enjoy in a physical office. It’s fast, reliable, easy to use and a great way to stay connected no matter where you, and your team members, are.
