Employee collaboration

The employees of an organization are typically widespread across geographies and regions, and having a virtual collaboration platform helps in establishing synergy between the varied teams and individuals. In order to drive the adoption of such platforms, especially in hierarchical organizations where communication usually flows through the hierarchy, introducing game mechanics comes in handy. Yammer is a popular collaboration software that helps in sharing ideas or information across teams within the organization and also increases interactions within project teams in order to get work done and arrive at prudent decisions after hearing multiple perspectives.
