Networking and collaborating
You can improve your workplace productivity by exchanging ideas and information with others in your industry. Collaborating with others can reduce the cost of doing business and give you access to new ideas and new technologies.
Networking and collaborating includes:
- building relationships with other organisations and industry bodies in your sector
- joining regional or national industry/trade organisations
- creating good business relationships with suppliers and other organisations that add value to your organisation
- getting involved in local, regional or national government agencies or programmes (e.g. New Zealand Trade and Enterprise).
