Unity is strength. When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. – Mattie Stepanek
The influx of young, hip entrepreneurs hitting it big is changing the ambiance of the workplace. Google is remarkable for changing the landscape because GooglePlex is not your traditional office. It is designed and equipped to foster creativity among its employees through group bonding activities. It has swimming pools and volleyball courts, among other facilities. Sounds fun, right?
Tony Shieh of Zappos’ does away with cubicles. He shares desk with his employees. He is big on the corporate culture of happiness and openness in the workplace and having an open space ensures that he is easily accessible.
Google and Zappos are just two of the companies that are promoting casual, fun but still results-oriented workplace. But not many companies can adopt these practices and facilities. Not all businesses can be casual and remain profitable. However, that doesn’t mean you cannot infuse fun group activities in your company. Nor does it mean that you have to limit your corporate group activities to Christmas and Halloween parties.
There’s team building to bridge that gap. This is a group activity that can offer you a lot of opportunities so that you can create a team that performs well while having fun. It also solves problems and conflicts that your team members are experiencing that hamper their performance in the office.
Not only that, but a meaningful group activity can also effectively boost your employees’ morale and happiness factor. Many employees feel alienated from their work that’s why there are two guaranteed results: poor performance and job resignations.
Thus, it is important that you create a team that is more than a collection of individuals working in the same office. Team building will ensure that your team members are working together towards a common goal by utilizing individual strengths and core competencies. It is a process that will enable your team to reach your company’s goals.
Fun Group Activities
A group activity paves the way for cooperation among your team members. In the office, they have separate tasks that, more often than not, are interrelated. It is important that your team members work together instead of against each other for your business to grow and run smoothly.
One of the common mistakes that many managers make is not putting any thoughts on their team building. Team building is much more than doing things together outside of the office. Thus, team members go back to the office not benefitting at all from the group activity. They could have felt energised, inspired, and enthusiastic after the team building activity.
A specially designed team building is composed of group bonding activities that will eliminate any uneasiness and reservations among your team members. It is tailored fit to your team members’ interests and hobbies to ensure that each group activity will give you your desired results.
