In the current work environment of remote working and flexible office schedules, it’s crucial to create opportunities for team members to come together. Team-building activities and company team away days provide the much-needed chance for relationship building and socialisation, fostering a positive company culture and boosting morale.
This break can help employees rejuvenate and refocus, returning to work with increased productivity and a fresh outlook.
Investing in company events and away days can also help increase employee happiness and job satisfaction, showing that employers care for their personal and professional development. Such initiatives can help employees better understand their roles within the company, leading to increased confidence in their work and improved job satisfaction.
Develop New Skills
Additionally, team activities and away days can help employees develop new skills and work together more effectively (especially if you can get them out of the office), leading to increased productivity and collaboration in the workplace. By getting to know each other on a more personal level, team members can improve communication and build stronger relationships, creating a stronger sense of community (I’m sure we’ve all made connections on a different level being out of the office in a different environment!)
Participating in team activities and away days can help employees see the big picture of the company’s goals and mission, leading to increased investment in the company’s success and, hence, improved productivity. Events and activities can also help build trust among team members, essential for effective teamwork and improved work efficiency.
According to Lorman, 76% of millennials believe professional development opportunities are one of the most important aspects of company culture.
