Importance of Team Building: Promotional Products

One of the earliest life lessons you learn as a child is the ability to work as a team. Even if some people work better together than others, everyone understands the value of being able to work in a team environment. At Greco Graphics, we’re dedicated to cultivating a team-oriented culture within your organization. From custom t-shirts to trophies, our line of promotional products is sure to bring your employees together!

 

Although some people may associate team building activities with awkward “icebreaker” style games, it can be one of the most beneficial things you can do for your team. By establishing a social-style relationship between employees, they are more likely to feel more comfortable sharing their thoughts and ideas and be more susceptible to feedback. According to Forbes, team building has been shown to help build trust, mitigate conflict, and have positive effects on both collaboration and communication.

 

Team Building Is An Investment

From a management standpoint, you may see out-of-office activities as a waste of time or money. But you should think of these activities as an investment. By fostering these relationships and providing your company with a fun event to look forward to, you can increase productivity and motivation.

 

Healthy Competition

It’s been proven that a little healthy competition can dramatically increase productivity as well. We’re not saying it’s okay to pit your co-workers against each other to see who is going to produce the superior product, but providing a small prize like a mousepad, keychain, or trophy could be just the boost they need. At Greco Graphics, we have a large variety of promotional products waiting for your logo.

 

Increase Communication

If individual competition isn’t your cup of tea, that’s okay. You can also use competition to increase communication between your coworkers. As we stated above, it’s much easier to talk with a coworker about a work-related problem once you develop a friendly relationship with them. And who isn’t friendly after racing to see who could build the sturdiest toothpick tower? Choosing activities that involve teamwork can also help bring that mindset back to the office.

 

Even though you might think you have to work hard day in and day out to be the most productive, keeping your employees satisfied with their work relationships can drastically improve how productive they are on a day to day basis.
