The last two years have seen an employee turnover “tsunami.” Employees are feeling burned out and overworked. According to an Achievers Workforce Institute report, only 21% of employees feel very engaged at work. Almost half of the respondents (46%) said they feel less connected to their workplace now than at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and one in four employees plan on seeking a new job with a different employer in 2022.
How can your company get through this and retain your best talent? One way is through team building in a fun and relaxed environment to form bonds and connections. A team-building event can improve communication, relieve stress, boost motivation, and foster collaboration.
Team building activities help your employees see each other in a different light, allowing them to connect to each other in an exciting new setting. The genuine connections they make in events that are fun and motivational pay enormous dividends. From problem-solving and conflict resolution in competitive activities to networking, socializing, and “getting to know each other” in a more relaxed setting, team-building events can provide new motivation AND bring them closer together.
Importantly, these events show employees that management cares and is willing to go the extra mile to show appreciation for their efforts.
Build bridges across departments so that employees get to know the people on the other side of emails and Zoom conferences. Unlock leadership potential. Foster innovation and creativity. Enhance company culture. The benefits of a team-building event will pay dividends long after the event is over.
