Your employees spend a lot of time together at the office, making it essential to have a welcoming atmosphere to increase their motivation and productivity. After making sure you have designed the workplace to make your employees feel at home, another step in the right direction is helping your team bond.
Team building activities are meant to strengthen bonds between coworkers, improve teamwork and problem-solving skills. However, the mere sound of these words can make your staff roll their eyes and instantly think of some of the embarrassing experiences they had to endure.
Therefore, it is not unusual for the team members to dread these kinds of activities, or at least be reluctant about them. Such activities may feel forced and awkward if not well thought out.
There is a way to engage your employees in team building activities they will actually enjoy.
