Re-Imagining Effective Work

New Way to Work Index – Unify

Unify recently published the results of its New Way to Work Index:

The first research wave for the Unify New Way to Work Index ran between January and February 2014 and surveyed more than 300 executives across the globe focusing on the habits and constructs of successful teams. Among the results was the finding that 94 percent of respondents work with virtual team members, indicating the rise of today’s mobile and global workforce and an urgent need for solutions that create enhanced productivity and collaboration across multiple platforms.

Unify summarised six habits of highly successful teams:
– they don’t let distance get in the way, and behavior trumps location
– they collaborate freely wherever they are
– team members are more personable in their habits
– team members reach out across locations
– engage in dialog not monologue in team meetings
– have more focused meetings
