While there are sceptics out there who may not believe in the value of team building, it is important to take note that there have not yet been any studies done to find a correlation between insecure, nervous employees creating problem solving opportunities or expanding organisational capabilities. The bottom line is that employees who are motivated, challenged and secure within their positions in a team will perform to their full potential and organisations that want to sail the seas of uncertainty this year should consider team building to align their human resource strategy with their organisational strategy for the year.
One of the biggest benefits of managing your human capital resources through team building is that it provides motivation. Motivation is one of those essential ingredients that can slip away while big projects are on the go and as employees literally run out of steam. Long term motivation can be especially difficult to sustain when organisations are under pressure to perform and meet their targets. Here are some of the most important reasons to invest in team building for your organisation’s growth and expansion strategy this year.
Discover Open Communication Through Team Building
Having open and clear communication at all levels means that everyone knows what is going on. Open communication means that there will be greater clarity about individual and group expectations for performance management. Through communication we can assess projects and programmes to see if they have been implemented effectively.
Team building offers an opportunity for decision-making processes and problem solving as it forces people to define their goals and objectives more clearly. It aligns individual growth and career advancement needs with organisational and HR strategy.
Develop Camaraderie Through Team Building
By introducing fun team building addresses the “human” needs of the team. Relationships may not be easy to maintain in the workplace but having a spirit of camaraderie fosters loyalty and unity between team members in an informal environment and makes it more enjoyable for people for maintain professional relationships.
It would be ideal if all employees could go on extended workshops and courses to hone their skills on a consistent but this is not always practical in today’s fast-paced working world. Team building events provide an accelerated learning format for optimal results in the shortest possible time frame.
What is going to make this year different to last year if you are working with the same team? A change in attitude, a change in approach and a little bit of fun to make sure everyone is on the same page with a team building event will concretise your organisational growth strategy for the year.
