The single biggest factor that makes a company thrive is its people. A solid workforce strengthens its teams, develops new ideas, keeps its leaders accountable and takes ownership of the organization’s trajectory. Keeping people informed and teams communicating effectively and swiftly is at the core of a strong organization. As Entrepreneur Magazine notes, company culture has proven to be a “must-have” rather than a “nice-to-have.”

But with a growing demand from employees of all generations for flexibility in their jobs, communicating with your workmates can be a challenge. Where can I find her email? Does he prefer to be contacted via Skype? Or via text? And with the rise in teams spread across the world, connecting with the right person while traveling or off-site can be difficult.
