Despite the summer months no longer meaning a long vacation as it did during school days, adults still think of summer fondly, remembering fun and carefree days with family and friends.
This is why the summertime is the ideal time for employees to get out of the office and bond. The weather is perfect, and we’re all already in the right mindset for some fun!
Team building activities are a great way to stimulate creativity and foster collaboration in the workplace. According to a survey, 97% of employees and executives surveyed believe that lack of alignment within a team directly impacts the outcome of a task or project. And 86% of employees and executives cite lack of collaboration or ineffective communication for workplace failures.
Fun activities help employees see each other in a different light, allowing them to connect with one another in a different setting. Motivational activities help teams build skills like communication, problem-solving and conflict resolution. When employees better understand each other’s strengths, weaknesses, and even interests, team performance is improved. And let’s not forget that people start to genuinely look forward to coming to work!
In fact, a study revealed that 39% of those surveyed believed that people in their own organization didn’t collaborate enough while 75% of employers rate teamwork and collaboration as “very important.”
This means that people believe in the value of collaboration and teamwork. When we are around people we are comfortable with; we tend to be more imaginative and inspired. Successful team building activities ultimately lead to more creative workplace ideas.
That’s why we at Room Escape Atlanta love seeing coworkers get together to bond. And if you can’t come to our facility, we can bring the fun and excitement right to you!
