We know what you’re thinking…this involves you, your staff, a river, some barrels and a poorly conceived raft design! The truth is, motivation and team building is at the core of great employee engagement. And the more your staff feel motivated, valued and part of a team, the more committed they are to making your business a success.
Encouraging a “team” work ethic will increase:
- Productivity and efficiency
And team building doesn’t have to revolve around formally organised events. Sometimes, “little and often” is the best approach, especially for smaller teams. It might be that holding a weekly team briefing, where everyone has the opportunity to share ideas or discuss issues, really helps your staff to feel included. Or you could pop to the pub, or grab a coffee after work on a Friday for a quick discussion about the week’s activities in a relaxed atmosphere. There is no right or wrong way to get your staff to feel part of your team – every group is different. In fact, why not start the team building process by getting some feedback about what they think would work?
The more your staff feel motivated, valued and part of a team, the more committed they are to making your business a success…
