How team building events at Chill Factore could improve productivity
Team building events are a crucial and necessary part of working life. Encouraging collaboration and teamwork between staff members can bring your team together in a positive manner. There are many beneficial reasons for team building events but one of the most valuable is the improved levels of productivity that they can encourage.
Read on to find out how holding team building events at an innovative venue, like Chill Factore, could improve the productivity of your team.
Socialisation between team members
Perhaps the most obvious benefit of team building activities is that it promotes socialisation between team members. It often becomes normal in an office for people to only engage with each other for business purposes, but this inevitably results in staff members not getting to know each other personally.
Team building activities promote the idea of socialisation between staff in the office, allowing people to get to know each other on a more personal level. Often when working in an office, it can be difficult to build connections with people that you don’t work directly with, so it is only during team building activities that people are able to find similarities of interests and hobbies.
Helping team members to build connections with each other can have a positive effect on general productivity since, naturally, people like to feel connected to those they work with.
You can picture it now. All of the team gliding across the snow together, working in a harmonious nature – sounds like a great way to get people feeling connected.
Bridging the gap between departments
Team building events are a great opportunity for those who don’t often encounter each other in the workplace to build a relationship. Some departments in a workplace often do work that is so different in nature that they won’t have much reason to engage. For example, the marketing team won’t interact with the finance department on a regular basis, so fun team bonding activities are a great way of allowing staff members to interact with each other.
Improves office morale
Fun team bonding activities boost morale in the office. Instead of being stuck behind a computer or desk all day, employees are given the chance to network, engage with others, and have some fun! When an employer promotes and encourages some fun team bonding activities, the staff members feel engaged and want to get involved.
In today’s culture, where offices tend to communicate via phone or email, team building events bring everyone together and promote a sense of solidarity, and there’s nothing like a good old Summit Challenge to get people talking!
Team building events = sense of appreciation
As an employee, when your boss suggests a fun team building event, there’s a huge sense of appreciation that goes with the gesture. There is no better feeling than knowing you are valued and appreciated, especially in the workplace, and fun team bonding activities are a fantastic way for employers to show their appreciation for their staff.
Employees are also given a mental break from work and a chance to unwind, so they feel more valued and engaged at work. Engaged workers are more productive, which overall means a win-win situation for the employer. In fact, in a study carried out by Total Team Building, companies who have engaged and valued staff actually earn twice as much income as those companies who have low employee engagement.
