The phrase ‘team building’ often concerns an employee. Isn’t that a day of ‘forced fun’ for colleagues who don’t know each other very well and are expected to be best friends and model employees from then on?
It can also worry managers. Will he or she have to come up with something funny and motivating to share with the group on an expensive day out that ends up just being a day of lost production?
It shouldn't be that way.
Team building is about
All these support staff motivation.
Motivated and well rewarded staff = a happy work force = increased productivity, profit and a secure future for all. Here are some quotes and studies on the importance of motivated staff.
Richard Branson famously once said that companies should prioritise employees over customers and shareholders as happy employees will look after their customers which in turn keeps shareholders satisfied.
A Harvard study found that camaraderie (“to have good, productive relationships with fellow employees”) is one of the three key goals that must be satisfied for enthusiastic employees.
On top of that, two studies cited in this infographic found that organisations with highly engaged employees have an annual net income which is double that of those companies with a demotivated workforce. Isn’t that what every employer wants?
If you’re convinced about the importance of an engaged team but think you can do that in the office, here are 5 reasons to have time away from the workplace.
