Of course, teamwork. In my opinion, teamwork is a powerful tool for effectively achieving goals, besides the personal and professional growth of each employee who is a member of such a team. If you uphold teamwork at the epicenter of your work culture, the productivity levels will definitely be higher.

All this, in response, contributes to greater quality output.
