Nowadays, organizations are trying to find the best tools for better collaboration that encourages employees to work together better and more efficiently.
Indeed, nowadays in this complex market will survive those companies that can adapt to a business environment that is changing constantly. Doesn’t matter in which market you work, you have to always be dynamic, growing and learn a lot. Hence, collaboration sounds like the best approach to take and it’s something that we all know is good to do. But it is definitely easier said than done.


Business chooses Microsoft Office 365 tools to introduce new ways of working by collaborating more. Here Microsoft apps as Teams, SharePoint, Outlook come to help. But what happens when these tools are so new for employees?
At first, employees are stressed about new technologies coming into their workplace. They are worried about how disruptive it will be for them. Usually, they are worried and raising questions like: Will I understand the new tools? Will I be able to use and work with them? When employees are told that new technologies are coming into their workspace, they get stressed and feel under pressure. And so, the fear about how the change will affect their job causes reluctance to use the tool or to know more about it.

Another type of issue appears during the time when employees are working with technologies. They encounter different problems such as something isn’t working properly, they do not know how to use the tool, or they want to know more about how this tool can be used more effectively.

This brings a lot of confusion at all levels, confusion in the habits of every single employee and also chaos for the IT support desk that receives thousands of questions.


Luckily, nowadays new tools have been created to help IT support to reduce the number of requests from end users. This is done by providing content that fosters user adoption and helps Office 365 users to find support and the information they need directly, offering also new possibilities of learning.
