Some people absolutely love the freelance lifestyle, but it isn’t for everyone. We can understand that you would want some of the more traditional perks that come along with working full-time but freelance has it’s perks too.

Collaboration or Roadblock?

This week we asked: [#QOW]

Is email a collaboration tool or a collaboration roadblock?

roadblock

Over 77% of you said that email was a great collaboration tool rather than a roadblock. Email allows us to communicate more quickly to our team either remotely or while in the office. It’s a great way to bounce ideas off one another.

Since the adoption of Mobile/Smartphones, we have our email in our pocket! Most of us are more connected than ever before – whether we want to be…or not.

Are you happy to be plugged in?

70% of you answered YES!

The appeal for a working lunch was overwhelming! Perhaps more companies should consider providing lunch for its employees to see productivity go up during the work day. Adding the extra time could greatly improve the workflow with less creativity gaps.

Does your company provide lunch? Do you feel it is effective? Let us know!
