Kickstarting 2020 with some positive thoughts!!

Have you already started planning team building activities for the year ahead? - everybody needs a fun project to work on in the New Year, especially in the beginning!

According to studies, team-building exercises are important not for the immediate experience of the activities performed by the team, but also for the group skills, communication and bonding that result. The main goals of team-building are to improve productivity and motivation. Which leads us nicely onto... Employee engagement.

A healthy and successful company starts with employee engagement. It’s important to understand and encourage what you, your employees and managers need to become and stay engaged at work.

Employee engagement is the emotional commitment an employee has to the business and its goals. Engaged employees care about their work, they use discretionary effort to accomplishing work as a team and their performance is of higher quality.

Why are engaged employees important?

Well, it’s believed that If people love their work and the environment you have created, they will be dedicated to innovate and improve your business.

• Focused, higher quality service

• Powerful productivity

• Impressive client retention

• Increase in sales

• Expansion in profits

If you’re still asking yourself “How do you create a team of engaged employees”? Here are a few tips:

1. Invest in them.

2. Surround them in a positive and clean work environment.

3. Plan team-building activities.

The physical environment of a workplace greatly affects the positivity within the business. Great energy can be created by an attractive, comfortable, clean environment. This energy ultimately enhances productivity and success. Windows allow natural sunlight and Vitamin D into an office, which is essential to contributing to a good mood. Similarly, windows allow an employee to look out and envision a new idea, which enhances creativity in the office.
