Team building is an interesting concept that can strengthen your workplace, especially in these times. It’s also a pretty fun way to spend time with your colleagues!
Many employers consider team-building events as a cost-effective way to boost employee engagement and teamwork skills. These experiences typically include activities like exercise, working out, cooking or baking together, and attending sports matches or games.
It may even be arranged for people to do things they would normally not usually do, such as go shopping or visit a museum after work. This creates informal connections which are important for staff morale and productivity.
Team-building exercises don’t always have to be expensive either – some of the most effective ones can be done at low cost. You just need to find the right one for your group and plan ahead.
There aren’t any hard and fast rules about how many times you should hold a team-bonding event, but our tip is to try it once a year to see what impact it has. If you notice significant changes in relationships within the department or improvements to performance, then maybe doing another one next season is needed?
This article will talk you through the different types of activity you could choose to organize as a team-bonding event, why they're great and what to say when asking for permission to host one.
