What is the importance of team building…and how can Lucidity Learning help?
Team building activities are a way of providing high-impact learning, increasing team skills, improving communication, and boosting morale and productivity. Employees benefit through experiencing a sense of accomplishment in working as a group to complete a challenging task and learning ways to improve communication skills.
That said, the mention of team building activities can often lead to a few eye rolls or sighs among staff. We all have more important tasks to attend to, right?
Of course it's likely there is important work to be completed, but investing time in corporate team bonding sessions can benefit employees and the business in the long run.
Team cohesion, engagement, drive, positive collaboration, and effective and efficient communication equals happier and more motivated and productive individuals.
Research has shown that team building has positive effects on team performance, with the secret being to keep team building exercises ‘normal’ and to avoid creating invasive and uncomfortable situations.
There’s also evidence to show that the connectedness of a team increases motivation. Along with fair treatment, feeling accomplished and camaraderie, these are the top factors people value at work.
From an employer’s perspective, training your team is just as crucial as hiring the right person when it comes to job satisfaction, productivity and efficiency.
