The importance of team building

The holidays are a perfect opportunity to think about organizing a team building event for your colleagues in the new year. Of course, we don’t have to have a specific occasion to diversify the office environment, but around the holidays is always a good opportunity for an employer to think about how to organize a team building event that will stimulate the team for the new year and charge it with positive energy.

After the long holidays, people will be rested and calmer, they will not be so busy with work, and this is a perfect opportunity to extend the festive mood, and then start the new working year.

The collective is built over a long and lasting time, and the internal relations between colleagues, as well as between an employer and a team, are one of the most important things to have a prosperous business. One of the most effective options for “warming up” the relationship in your team and bringing it together even more is to organize such an event for them at the most appropriate moment. And here is what exactly “team building” means and what are the benefits of conducting it:

Team building is generally a type of training program that aims to give each participant the opportunity to express their personal qualities, play in a team and develop their leadership qualities as well as their reflexes. Very often, this type of organization is also accepted as a type of excursion or vacation, since the duration of the event can be one or several days. And although at the core are team games that stimulate certain qualities, people can have fun, rest and relax the rest of the time.

The important thing about team building is that people are taken out of their everyday environment so that they can feel the change, recharge and have new strength and energy to do their usual work tasks.

These types of events also play an important role in creating an overall picture of the qualities of your employees. Of course, in a day-to-day work environment, you’ve already had the opportunity to get to know a lot of the workers, but it’s quite another to be taken out of their “comfort zone” and given a great experience that will push them beyond their capabilities. , to show their creativity and further develop their potential. In this way, employers can also orient themselves and refine their view of exactly how their team works on a day-to-day basis. And of course, if you’re holding this event at the beginning of the calendar year, it’s a great way for you to sum up exactly how people on your team are feeling after the past year and what your HR and engagement strategy will be for the new year. You also have the opportunity to make a plan for what the distribution of tasks will be for each employee.

Another important feature of good team building is the ability to eliminate professional positions and titles. In these days, when the team is training, resting and getting to know each other, it is easiest to create equality, which can then be transferred to the office and make the environment much easier and pleasant. And why not start the new year this way?

Organizing this type of event is not an easy task and there are many steps that need to be followed and completed so that you are calm on the day and before and not thinking about what could go wrong but rather enjoying yourself of the organization and of the games that are prepared to be held. Very often, clients already have an idea of what exactly they want to hold as an event, as well as what the purpose of the team building will be. It is on this idea that we are guided and find the most suitable place where the plan can be easily implemented.

To begin with, a suitable place must be found in which the event can be held. The place is just as important as the program, because it quite often succeeds in getting employees interested and in the mood to have a good time.

The next step is to organize the overall program and have a clear idea of what exactly will take place on the respective days. An important feature of team building is that, in addition to games, you can teach your colleagues something new with lectures. This is very useful, as in this way you increase the interest of your employees and also enrich them further.

Among other things, you need to organize your budget, the program, the idea of what you want to achieve after the event is held, and have a clear idea of the desires and personalities of the people who will participate in the team building, to avoid having someone who feels uncomfortable.

Of course, there are many more details that go into creating a functional team building event, and if you want to have just such an event that is completely organized and well thought out, Smile Agency is the place to go!
