Sometimes the idea of hosting frequent office events for your staff can feel daunting and frankly, a waste of time and resources. It can feel hard to justify taking staff away from their jobs to participate in activities however there are many benefits of encouraging this type of team event.
Everyone at some point feels stressed and bogged down by their work, office politics, or deadlines. Giving your staff the opportunity to blow off some steam and get away from the nitty-gritty of their day to day means they are coming back refreshed and with a clear lens through which they can approach their work.
An employee spends 8ish hours a day, 5 days a week at their job and often this means they spend more time at work with co-workers than they do at home with their families and friends. Encouraging co-workers to learn how each other works, learns, and their strengths and weaknesses, means you have a staff compliment that is better equipped to work as a team. Your staff are able to work together more effectively, meaning better output and ultimately more profit.
Better workplace morale
When your staff feel valued and part of something bigger than their direct responsibilities, they are more willing to go above and beyond the confines of their job description, assist fellow team members with work and feel as though they are contributing. The more time staff have to connect with those they may not work with during regular business hours, extends their engagement into the working hours as well.
Engaged employees work better, produce higher quality work, and are more committed to the company as a whole.
