Merits of Teambuilding!

Team-building activities can produce a number of benefits. Once you get everyone to understand the importance of team-building, the program has a better chance of being accepted.

Common Goal

  • Team-building activities help people understand the importance of      working together. A company is more productive when everyone works      together for a common goal, without factions or other divisive elements.

Trust/Agreement

  • Team-building activities help develop an atmosphere of trust,      confidence, energy and creativity. Team-building helps put everyone in a      spirit of agreement.

Ideas/Participation

  • When people come together in team-building activities, it results      in more ideas from everyone involved. There is more participation. An      organization can improve certain processes and procedures when everyone      cares about and is a part of the outcome.

Motivation

  • People have a tendency to help each other more when there are      team-building activities. Team-building creates an environment that      motivates people to achieve the goals and objectives of the organization      while subordinating individual goals.

Rapport

  • Team-building activities give people a chance to learn personal      information about each other. People are then able to establish a certain      amount of rapport and are more tolerant of each other. This creates a      situation in which people are willing to work through situations in a more      amicable way.

Organizational Benefits

  • In team-building, employees have a tendency to be more concerned      with the result rather than individual recognition. This makes an      organization more likely to experience an increase in sales, lower costs,      lower turnover and less absenteeism.
