The Benefits of Team Building for Your Business

What are the benefits of team building for your employees?

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”.

Teamwork is important in all aspects of life, especially within the workspace, with studies showing productivity increases by up to 50% when teams work together. Team building helps generate trust and boost morale, which brings increased communication, problem solving skills, conflict resolution, and team collaboration.

With a move toward working from home, it is more important than ever that teams feel united and collaborative, even online. Team building is one of the most important investments into the success of your company, and overall well-being of your employees.

 

Why invest in Team Building?

Boost Your Team’s Performance

Having your team work together in a light-hearted spirit can help them identify eachother’s strengths and weakness, which they can lean into once back in the professional workspace. This understanding helps them work even better together on future progress vital to a company.

Encourage Team Spirit and Fun

Encouraging your team to win at a team building task can help harness some competitive fun that will translate into the workplace. The feeling of success in a fun environment can help motivate employees to bring their job performance to the next level.

Foster Innovation and Creativity

People tend to have wider imaginations when they are around people they are comfortable with. By breaking the ice and tension that can sometimes build in work teams, all that is left is safe spaces for creativity and innovation.

More Effective Communication

Workplaces are only as successful as their communication skills. Team building exercises always have a focus on communication and may even find specific areas of communication to work on.

Building Bridges Across Departments

Nearly every company falls into the trap of a lack of widespread departmental communication, and this can negatively impact workflows and communication. Ensuring your employees can work well both interdepartment and across the board is one of the main aims of team building. Bridging those divides allows for positive relationships to form, which leads to a more productive company.

Improve Employee Engagement and Morale

Committing to regularly scheduled team building events can build comradery, make employees more excited to come to work, more enthusiastic about their work, and more comfortable approaching each other.  It also may help employees to feel more encouraged to step away from their desks and have some fun, which in turn will help them return to their work feeling refreshed and re-energized.
