Having a ‘well oiled’ team in place is a business owners number one goal. But this isn’t necessarily something that’s easy to accomplish and requires a massive amount of input as well as people development.
Something that business owners are taking advantage of is team building activities. They can have a variety of positive impacts on your business from increasing employee confidence and productivity to bringing a less than harmonious team together.
Unfortunately, team building is more often than not an overlooked concept. However, we’ve put together the top 5 reasons as to why we think it shouldn’t be.
Team building activities are a great way to boost the morale of your employees. The workplace can be a competitive environment and it’s sometimes easy for an employee to have their confidence knocked. But this can easily be built back up and enthusiasm reignited through team building activities – it’s in the name after all!
Improved Relationships & Communication
Team building gives your employees the opportunity to talk about things that don’t centre around work, as well as getting them to work together on unfamiliar projects. This is really important if you want to encourage your employees to bond with each other and to communicate effectively.
You get a variety of different personalities in the workplace and it’s common for some people to take a back seat or not want to be in the limelight all of the time. Team building gives these employees the opportunity to step forward and integrate with the rest of the team. At the same time, it will also help you to define who the leaders of your team are.
Productivity & Efficiency
It’s easy for employees to become stressed due to high workloads which can be very counterproductive. The benefits of removing your employees from the workplace for the day or even a weekend can have surprisingly productive results. It gives them a chance to clear their minds and focus on something else for a while. Employees can then return to work feeling revitalized and tackle their work with a fresh mind-set which will ultimately boost productivity.
