Investing In Your Workforce’s Happiness
If you have big plans for 2019, now is the time to make sure that your team is as strong as possible.
Behind every business success story is a team that works brilliantly together. If you’re ready to take the next step and really push for greatness in 2019, then you should focus on your team’s happiness first. It’s not rocket science either! With a little time and investment, you’ll soon have a team who are rock solid and ready to achieve.
Take a look at your staff
If you’re looking to boost your profile and profits in 2019, you should first of all look at how happy and motivated your team are. A team who are genuinely passionate about their jobs will deliver better results, and will be prepared to step up and go the extra mile when needed. If your team aren’t happy, then they are just going to put in the bare minimum, without really caring about the bigger picture.
Transform the office
One of the easiest ways of improving the mood in a workspace is to decorate and make the office feel as comfortable and pleasant as possible. If an office feels oppressive and run-down, that’s really going to impact on your team’s performance. So over the course of a week or two, give your workplace a fresh lick of paint, ensure your staff have comfy chairs and make an area where they can relax and take a break. You’ll be amazed at how the general mood improves – and your staff won’t be running out of the door at 5pm on the dot!
Take part in team building events
Once you’ve improved the office décor, look at taking your team out of the workplace for a day. Corporate team building activities are becoming more and more popular, and are so far removed from the cliched motivational talks that most people think of. Modern team building activities can be anything from obstacle courses, baking classes, cocktail mixing lessons and casino evenings. So your team will have lots of fun as they take part.
Getting everyone working together
Team building activities are great if you want to strengthen workplace relationships through your entire company. You can get departments who might not mix together during working hours to collaborate. This will make the world of difference back in the office. Different teams will reach out to each other, and tasks will be completed much more quickly when different departments can work together with ease.
Team building events can really improve people’s confidence too. Solving a problem or completing a task within a set time period will really boost someone’s self-esteem. Team building activities are great for blending a workforce of varying ages. Younger employees will be encouraged to step up, and those who have been with the company for years will be reassured that they still have what it takes. Everyone will come out of the day feeling more driven and eager than ever before.
2019 can’t come quickly enough!
With an office that everyone loves to spend time in and some select team building activities, your business could be totally transformed. So what are you waiting for? Now that you know how to get your team working together and feeling more confident in themselves, there’s no reason to delay.
