Teamwork in the Work Place

Teamwork is “work done by several associates with each doing a part but all subordinating personal prominence to the efficiency of the whole”.  

Teamwork is defined as “those behaviors that facilitate effective team member interaction,” with “team” defined as “a group of two or more individuals who perform some work related task, interact with one another dynamically, have a shared past, have a foreseeable shared future, and share a common fate.” (Wikipedia Definition)

 In the past, I have been accused of using sports as an analogy when speaking or writing of a specific subject. Accusation, Justified!!!

I believe that teamwork is the difference between a good product and a great product. If you follow baseball, the phrase “Tinkers to Evers to Chance” would never have been coined if one of the three infielders from the Chicago Cubs were prone to make an error.

Arguably, the best Wide Receiver and Quarterback in the history of football, Jerry Rice and Joe Montana would never have received that status unless they both were together for all those record setting years.

In the NBA, John Stockton (Assist Leader) and Karl Malone (The Mailman) from the Utah Jazz were so successful because each one consistently knew what to expect from the other.

At FYI Solutions, I believe that the company has prospered and has the longevity that it has primarily due to the cohesiveness and teamwork of the group. There are essentially seven specific groups (Management, Finance, Sales, Recruiting, Solutions, Outreach and Administration) that work together to reach our ultimate goal….Client Satisfaction!!

Without each group doing their specialty, the end result would never happen. The Account Executive receives the Client opportunity and presents it to the Recruiting Staff who searches their respective databases to match the correct candidate to present to the client. Our Account Executives work very closely with our Solutions Staff members to identify Project opportunities to deliver the Client end product.

Without our Administration and Outreach group to support all of the above initiatives, our attrition rate would be so high that we would not be able to sustain any growth. The implementation of our Consultant Outreach program enables FYI and our Consulting staff to work together and keep the lines of communication open to create a better product. The final piece of the puzzle is our Finance group who makes it possible to attain all of the functions by tying the forecasts, revenue, costs and finally payroll together.

Teamwork means so much to our organization that one of our Conference Rooms is named after it.

FYI Solutions is an IT Consultancy, based in NJ, which has been providing staffing, permanent placement services, and solutions to our clients for over 30 years. For more information about FYI Solutions and the available opportunities, contact us.
