Sometimes it is hard to do things by oneself, be it working on a project or managing a business without extra sets of hands. However, it does not have to be this way, because collaborating with others is a totally different feeling than working alone. Each year brings new problems that can be conquered together, and with this year moving along, here are 10 reasons for collaborating in 2021!


1# COLLABORATION BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER


It cannot be overstated enough, but being isolated from people is no fun. Especially in work where communication is needed, working in isolation is a hindrance to one’s health. This can be solved with collaboration because it can bring people together, and from that, nobody will be left out. Isolated people would be missing out on possible interactions they might have had.


2# COLLABORATION CAN HELP US LEARN FROM EACH OTHER

Sometimes people learn by hearing, and sometimes they learn by doing. However, sometimes people can learn from others in a collaboration setting. This goes well with the previous reason because when people meet each other, they can also learn a thing as well. So get to know new people within a collab group and see where that leads.

#3 COLLABORATION ASSISTS WITH EXTRA LOAD WORK

Doing too much work can be very stressful. But why work solo when working with others can balance the load and lessen the stress. Working together would also help productivity by keeping the work progress in schedule. Do not work alone, work in a collaboration.

4# COLLABORATION KEEPS PEOPLE ON TASK

Feeling distracted? Not getting work finished on time? Collaboration can help with that, by keeping all members on task. They can be on task by getting everyone into the spirit of working together. By doing so, everyone can become more focused on their tasks. 

5# COLLABORATION BRINGS TEAM MEETINGS

These days, apps such as Zoom and Messenger are often used for establishing team meetings in organizations. Team meetings are important for briefing members of a collaboration because everyone needs to be in the know of what is going on. Team meetings are even more crucial for remote collaborations.

6# COLLABORATION INVITES CREATIVE IDEAS

The best work when all team members come together with brilliant ideas. These ideas can eventually lead to more collaborations and possibly jobs. There is something for everyone in a collaboration.
7# COLLABORATION PROMOTES REMOTE WORK 

It has been a while since people were allowed to go to work. Remote work makes it possible for people to resume in the comforts of their home. Collaboration helps by connecting members online, even from different parts of the world.

8# COLLABORATION SUPPORTS EMPLOYEE MENTAL HEALTH

Organizations and businesses will fall if an employee’s health is not a top priority. This can lead into a decline in the quality of a working environment, Making sure everyone does not become overworked will help them relax and stay focused.

9# COLLABORATION ALLOWS FOR INTERNAL MINGLING

When in a collaboration, it is important to know who the teammates are. Spend some time working with them, and they may share about their personal lives. Friendships can blossom and possibly romantic relationships. Do not join a collaboration for the work only, do it for meeting new people.

10# COLLABORATION ESTABLISHES GOALS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Every collaboration has a purpose, and all members must act upon it. The sole reason collaborations form is because of mutual interests within them, as people want to accomplish something together for society or make names of themselves. Goals and responsibilities are what define collaborations, as they give them purpose. 
This year so far has been tough on everyone, so connecting with others is key to making it through together.
