How many times have you faked an illness before team-building days? Calm down, I don’t force you to reveal this horrible truth. Let’s just admit that the majority of team-building activities suck. Those hotdog eating contests and egg dropping… Yuck. On the other hand, team building activities are essential for the company success. In fact, the personal bonds between teammates give businesses a competitive edge.
A team that can collaborate and communicate effectively is more productive, happier and pleasant to work with. How does this work? It’s all about engagement. The studies show that close work friendship boosts employee satisfaction by 50 percent. At the same time, people are seven times more likely to be fully engaged if they have a best friend at work. Another report claims that engaged teams outperform competitors in terms of performance and profits.
