Builds Team work
In most organizations, some of the tasks must be done collectively. This means that all employees must come together to achieve a common goal. Sounds easy right? Not so. We all come from different backgrounds, different upbringing and we all have different temperaments. Team building encourages team work. It creates obstacles that one person cannot achieve alone. It forces the team to compromise, to accommodate each others difference. When they acknowledge their difference, they are able to work together.
The office can be quite intimidating. There’s always this fear of being watched. Every action is evaluated. You cannot tell an employee she looks stunning without being slapped with a sexual harassment suite. Every one is competition. But it is different when you take the employees out for team building. Human beings are social animals, deprive them of their phones and they’ll look for someone for company and who better than their colleague. Team building encourages communication and employees who are on good terms perform better than those who are not.
Motivates the employees
Nothing says, “I appreciate you” to employees than to be treated on a day out. Coming up with events that encourage the employees to learn new skills is an important factor in building productivity in the work place.
Each employee has a role to play. Team building activities mainly center around a goal which can only be achieved if everyone does their part. Teaching employees to be responsible will reinforce how taking responsibility is important to team performance.
