How To Use Team Building To Boost Employee Engagement

By | Team Building | No Comments

It’s no secret there’s an engagement problem in today’s workplace. A 2015 Psychometrics Engagement Study found that a jaw-dropping 69% of employees believed their company had an engagement problem, while 82% felt it was critical for their organization to address this issue. That’s a lot of unhappy employees – and a lot of unhappy employees who want their company to fix the problem.

It’s also no secret that better engaged employees are better performing employees, and that’s crucial to your business’ success. Studies have shown almost 80% of employees who considered themselves highly engaged trust their managers, and those employees who feel as though their company values them are 60% more likely to feel motivated to do their absolute best for the business. So what is there to lose by rededicating your company to improving employee engagement?

Below are three great ways to boost employee morale and help ensure you have a dedicated, committed team.

1) Have fun together. Team building is a proven strategy for increasing employee engagement and morale, and it doesn’t have to be boring or cheesy. Take Museum Hack’s renegade scavenger hunts of one of the world’s best museums! Museum Hack will have your employees uncovering the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s hidden treasures and hurrying through the museum’s halls in a race to mimic their favorite sculptures. Their incredible tour guides will have your team laughing, competing, and relaxing, all while recharging their batteries as they return to work focused and ready to go.

2) Volunteer together. Paying it forward is never a bad idea, and what better way to inspire feelings of camaraderie than with a team building volunteering event? Spend a day building houses with Habitat for Humanity, serve food at a local soup kitchen, or head down to the animal shelter to get in a little exercise with adorable pooches in need of walks.

3) Celebrate success. Always ensure that your employees’ achievements don’t go unnoticed. Celebrating successes, both big and small, can have a hugely positive impact on your workforce – and that’s critical to keeping your employees happy, engaged, and committed to your company.

The key is to make your employees feel valued. A happy employee is, in all likelihood, an engaged employee, and it’s clear that engaged employees are better for all facets of your business.
