Over the years various business leaders and psychologist have worked out a series of activities in an effort to keep employees and staff inspired and motivated. Their goal was to keep the employer’s turnover lower and increase their productivity. Though a lot of these methods have failed and in somewhere found success, but cannot be seen as full proof method to achieve the trust and loyalty of employees. Recently there has emerge a concept of team building and employee engagement which is gradually finding its spotlight for achieving employees trust , boost productivity and improve retention.
What team building can achieve
Though the size and culture of a firm determines the outcome but generally these are a few goals that corporate team building activities can achieve for you:
- The morale of employees improves in team exercises as spotlight on one particular star performer shifts towards the entire team and hence the entire team earns the praise they deserve. This reduces the stress on one star performer and morale of the whole team improves.
- Team activities helps improve communication as it creates a sense of belonging in the firm, which results in open communication between co- workers and staff members.
- These activities help to create a sense of loyalty in employees as it aids to see the upper management as their colleagues rather than a superior authority.
- Team building helps to form better problem solving skills between the employees. Every company faces issues minor or major, sometimes it’s a full blown crises, but with team building activities employees can form their own strategies and plans to counter a problem rather than waiting for the boss to dictate them a possible solution. This will help immensely in preventing a small problem to become a major one.
- Team building exercises and events improve creativity. Discussing possible solutions and sharing ideas all help in boosting creativity and hence a firm benefits from it.
