Strong teams are important in businesses of all sizes – but the problem too often is that businesses focus on making customers happy and neglect the needs of their employees.
An organization’s leadership plays an important role here in overseeing activities that promote team building.
Team building creates stronger bonds among the members of a group. The individual members respect each other and their differences and share common goals and expectations.
Team building has other benefits as well, such as:
- Improves employee motivation
- Increases productivity
- Encourages collaboration
Team building can involve structured activities and exercises led by team members. Or, with the proper budget and goals, managers can contract out for facilitation with an external resource. External facilitation by an experienced person can give your team building a boost.
But, while team building activities should undoubtedly be fun, in order to maximize their effectiveness they should help promote your company values — otherwise they can be forgotten or misinterpreted.
In fact, the most effective team building events not only communicate company values but also have tangible back to work benefits. It is equally important to choose the right fit for your company in order to see the best return on investment.
