Team building activities are a way to provide high-impact learning, increase team skills and communications, and improve morale and productivity. Employees benefit through experiencing a sense of accomplishment in working as a group to complete a challenging task and learning ways to improve communication skills.
There are four important benefits that arise from team building exercises like ours at Pitt Race:
- Improved productivity- As employees learn how to work together more effectively, they are able to do their own work more efficiently. Through these activities they learn strengths and weaknesses of their fellow co-workers and therefore can identify ways to improve processes that have hindered productivity in the past.
- Increased motivation- When employees succeed in team building activities, they become more confident and feel that they can take on things that they hadn’t before. They also gain motivation from the trust they gain from feeling their work as a team is recognized and appreciated.
- Improved problem solving skills- The problem solving skills that they practice in simulation, like one of our team building programs, can transfer into the workplace. These type of activities make employees aware of the resources that each team member brings to the table and how they can be used together in a structured way.
- Encouraged creativity- Team building activities remove employees from their usual environment and require them to complete out-of-the-ordinary tasks. This type of environment can give employees time to use their imagination and creativity to solve problems. These tasks also send the message to team members that creativity is welcome and encouraged in the workplace.
