The words ‘Team Building’ don’t do justice to the magnanimous impact they can have on your team dynamics and overall corporate wellness. In an age where we are able to complete tasks, which would normally take a month, in a day’s time, it is becoming increasingly important to engage employees with one another and take time out to release work-stress. According to research, we spend approximately one-third of our lives at work! This is quite a significant part of our life which should be equally fulfilling as any other aspect of life and recognizing that is the quality of an employee-focused organization
Here are our top 3 reasons why team building activities are worth your time:
1. Increases Team Productivity
The most common excuse to avoid conducting team building activities is that ‘we just have our annual event where we go out for lunch or dinner’. This needs to change. Team building activities are way of pushing employees to choose something unique and slightly outside of their comfort zones to encourage them to come together in new ways.
According to Kenexa Research Institute, companies with highly engaged employees achieve twice the annual net income of organizations whose employees aren’t engaged. For this to happen, the top of the management as the core leadership team should enforce team building activities to strengthen these corporate values.
2. Improves Team Performance
Corporate team building is much more than simply boosting employee morale’s for a short period of time. If conducted by an experienced team building company, the impact can help team performance and deliver powerful business messages through exciting and challenging activities. Team building is a worthwhile investment as it helps employees feel worthy and appreciated whilst reminding them about their organization’s corporate values and culture.
3. Motivates employees and boosts positive energy
Whichever industry you belong to, the daily grind stresses everyone out and it’s essential that the top level management realises this as a concerning matter. Through effective team building activities, employees not only feel great stepping outside of the work environment to interact with one another but also share anecdotes and cheerful memories for the following days to come. Therefore, team building activities certainly bring in a lot of positive energy into the work environment and help employees perform better.
