Building and maintaining a strong team is very important to everyone at Urban Valley Resort & Spa and to this end we recently hosted our latest Staff Thank you Lunch. We all realise that success is a collective effort to ensure our guests continued happiness and wellbeing.
Team building is important…
Team building brings people together by encouraging collaboration and teamwork. Fun activities that help people see each other in a different light allow them to connect in a different setting.
One of the most powerful reasons for team building is to get results.
Through a series of planned team building events that are fun and motivational, teams build skills like communication, planning, problem-solving and conflict resolution. These team building activity ideas help to facilitate long term team building through fostering genuine connections, deeper discussions and processing, especially in a multi-cultural environment like ours.
Through team building, people bond in a common cause, supporting each other to achieve a common goal, whatever that might be.
Here’s a list of the top six reasons for team building:
- Communication and working better together.
To no surprise, communication and working better together is the top reason why people choose team building. Everybody wants a friendly work environment, where people are comfortable and happy to talk to and work with anyone.
- Collaboration and the fostering of innovation and creativity.
People tend to have a larger imagination when they are around people they are comfortable with. Successful team building events not only bring people closer together, but they also contribute to a more successful and creative workplace. Everyday workplace collaboration is key to a successful business and it is paramount for success at Urban Valley Resort & Spa.
- Teamwork and boosting team performance.
Team building activities also work to improve workplace projects that involve teamwork because it helps the teams understand each other better. After completing team building activities together, employees better understand each other’s strengths, weaknesses, and interests. This understanding helps them work even better together on future progress vital to a company.
- Networking, socialising and getting to know each other better.
Socialising and making friends in the workplace is one of the best ways to increase productivity. But not only does it increase morale, it also allows for better solving of everyday workplace issues.
- Celebration, team spirit, fun, and motivation.
After any sports team wins a major trophy, they celebrate and have fun, which motivates them to want to win even more. Celebration, cheering and fun that comes with every Team Bonding event can motivate employees to bring their job to the next level.
- Competition and bragging rights.
Competition has been shown to increase productivity. By channeling that increased productivity into a fun, inclusive team building activity, teams can bond in a more effective way than by other methods.
So, never underestimate the importance of developing and maintaining a strong team – at Urban Valley Resort & Spa we invest in our team so that we can maintain our high standards.
