Employer engagement is key to any business. To achieve success, your team will need to be thriving when presented with new challenges, actively sharing solutions with one another and helping share the workload across a busy workspace.
A good way to nurture employer engagement within the workplace is team building exercises and Function18 agree. They’re a great motivator for employees, because after all, who doesn’t want to leave the office for a day and have a bit of fun? Don’t be fooled into thinking such days are a waste of time though, they do serve an important purpose. To encourage your team to gel and work as a cohesive unit.
A lot of companies outsource these events to consulting companies. Sure, they might have all the latest know-how about the ins and outs of interpersonal relationships within businesses, but in all honesty, who knows the ins and outs of your workforce better than yourself? It can’t be understated how much more relaxed your employees will feel when they’re not dealing with strangers during these events.
Another problem with team building exercises now is that so many people have been dragged on those dull and predictable rope walking exercises that anytime someone mentions an activity has been booked for this purpose, the announcement will usually be met with groans. Standard team building exercises are seen by many as somewhat contrived. It would seem it’s time for a change.
