Work team relationships require maintenance just like any other relationship. Coworkers see each other every day and frequently work together on important projects and assignments. That means you want your teams to have strong relationships so they can work more effectively together. Having occasional team-building activities helps your teams have fun together and create better friendships — which translates to better work done in the office.
Signs Your Team Needs Team Building
Maybe you’ve recently become aware of some snarky comments or frustration boiling within the teams in your office. You might be scratching your head, wondering what on earth you are going to do so that your teams start cooperating again.
