Is team building relevant in today’s workplace?
In the modern society of instant gratification, the art of relationship-building is severely neglected. Once colleagues can identify with each other without their preconceived opinions of each other, real team bonding and growth can begin. Team building events benefit the participants in both their work and personal life. The long term benefits include enhanced communication skills, concentration, decision making, stress minimization and self-confidence.

Why is team-building important for businesses?
Team Building is important for businesses because it recognises that a company’s biggest asset is their employees. It is important because individuals can recognise others with a better understanding and mutual respect. Team-building events and activities have many benefits to your company such as improving communication and making the workplace more enjoyable. It is very helpful in motivating a team and for team members to get to know each other better. It is also very useful for making sure that all the members of a team are “on the same page” with regards to the companies objectives through goal setting activities. Through team-building activities, the participants often learn more about themselves especially in terms of their strengths and weaknesses as well as helping management to identify and utilise strengths in their employees.
