As the ever growing business world evolves, a greater importance is placed on people rather than profit. Companies and businesses are finally realizing that you can’t build a company without building the people who work in it.
That being said, it isn’t individuals, but teams that set good companies apart from great ones. One of the best ways to keep a team motivated, in sync with each other and happy, is to get them off site and let them engage and play with each other in team building activities.
Behind every successful business, is a happy team.
Here are 6 benefits of team building activities:
1. Work is a happy place:
We spend more than half of our lives at our workplace and with our colleagues so it should be a pleasant experience. Having regular team building activities allows the team to be excited and look forward to something that isn’t work related. Teams will be more open and relaxed with each other when anticipating these outings.
Team building activities help induce interaction between colleagues who typically don’t interact at the office and keep to themselves. Increased integration can help lead to more innovative thinking and problem-solving in a team.
3. Culture Club:
Team building activities make your company fun, lively and give it character. The bonding and camaraderie that take place at these events are often pulled through to the office as well; creating a warm, close-knit and vibey culture. This also entices others to want to work in your company and also with your company.
4. Increased Morale:
Nothing increases team spirit and fights work fatigue and burn out like a day out of the office. The team will get back to work refreshed and revitalized and ready to be more productive than ever.
5. Ever – Efficient:
After team building events, an office’s efficiency will generally increase. With the team having better relationships and understanding between each other, there will be less room for miscommunication and understanding and less wasted resources.
6. Roles and Responsibilities:
Sometimes people aren’t sure of what their exact role is in their team and they struggle to figure out what they bring to the team. This can be demotivating for them. Team building activities encourage people to implement themselves in the best way they know how — this is great for people figuring out their roles within the team. Leaders will also be able to see which are the strong points for each member.
