Getting a job in which you work with other people is better than getting a job in which you have to work alone.
There are many things to consider in terms of work pattern. Different people have different ideas about whether or not work with other people. While some people like to work alone. Others prefer to work with colleagues. Personally, I believe it is better for employees to work with each other, because employees who work with others can hone their interpersonal skills, and the work mode could encourage the competition. Meanwhile, collaboration may inspire people’s creativity.
Firstly, it is universally acknowledged that working with others can improve employees’ communication skills. At work, workers learn how to communicate with colleagues, bosses and customers. For example, what a programmer has to deal with is not only computer programs, but also figuring out what their partners are thinking, which means that workers must communicate and negotiate with colleagues frequently.
Moreover, colleagues that workers cooperate with are their rivals as well. As we all know, cooperation and competition are the eternal themes of human growth. Working with one another creates competitive atmosphere and environment, so that employees can gain knowledge from people who are more excellent than themselves. What’s more, the stress that competition brings may stimulate their passion for work.
Last but not least, teamwork definitely inspires people’s creativity. According to research, thirty years ago, only ten percent of Noble Prize winners worked in a team. Nowadays, the proportion of achievements achieved by teamwork has reached sixty percent. As the saying goes that two heads are better than one. The collision of people’s ideas always has the effects beyond the expectation.
In conclusion, I hold an opinion that working alone may avoid amounts of troubles, but it is far from being an efficient work mode. Instead, working with other people is the better way not only to encourage the productivity but to make workers enjoy teamwork as well. That why we should undoubtedly work with each other.
