Have you ever heard the old saying “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”? Too much work can be stressful and it takes toll on an individual’s physical, emotional, and psychological health. In fact, too much work can kill.
The role of team building activities (TBAs) is important, not only in keeping employees stress-free, but as well help companies promote camaraderie and team work within all levels. According to studies, too much work can cause stress-related illness such as migraine headaches, heart attack, muscle tension, stiff neck, or can even lead to cancer.
To minimize stress-related illness, companies organize TBAs to help employees release stress. Common team building activities include playing sports like basketball, volleyball, baseball, or soccer; attend seminars and other self-improvement trainings together; organize games and activities that involve group participation.
Team building activities offer quite a number of advantages both for the employers and the employees. TBAs improve stimulus and production. Bringing people outside of the office can aid in breaking down personal and political fences, eradicate anxiety and promote fun. According to research, team building activities assist in improving self-esteem and leadership competence, helps locate the barriers that stops the employee’s creativity, and distinctly defines objectives and aspirations. Team building activities also help companies improve their procedures and processes, and as well enhance the company’s organizational efficiency.
