We should think of the company as a machine composed of a large number of gears. Each of these gears is one sector, and when one of them does not go well, all others have problems. Team building is a technique that makes it possible for all sectors to work together, keeping the gears in perfect working order.
The integration between the sectors of a company is the lubrication necessary for its proper functioning. In the world we live in, competitiveness is not something that we should only think about in competition. The sectors of an organization must seek perfection and compete with each other, offering others the perfect conditions so that everything may be within the plan.
With the integration offered by team building, employees will be more attuned, making the organization have the opportunity to increase its competitiveness in the market and achieve better results.
Integration and its need for the company
Integration within a company is an ongoing process that must be applied to maintain employee engagement, as well as integrate new employees into the organizational environment and make everyone look for quality.
Team building seeks greater integration, reinforcing the importance of the need to work as a team, adding strength and achieving the objectives and goals idealized by management.
Promoting integration among team members from different sectors, the company manages to make each of them feel part of the team, facilitating the development of activities.
As each company has a different organizational level and, consequently, a specific work environment, it is necessary to apply the team building activities, thus developing a culture in the organization that presents the desired results.
Although in different ways, the organizational environment can benefit from the same results through integration between teams, as we can see below:
1. Greater synergy between teams
The integration promoted by team building allows employees to feel part of the whole, producing with better quality. At the same time, the company will achieve greater synergy, promoting better relationships among employees.
2. Improving productivity
The investment in team building activities will enable the company to have a more cohesive and participative organizational climate, with employees being more concerned about achieving good results. Consequently, the company will have improved productivity while maintaining the quality of its products and services.
3. Reduction of absenteeism in the workplace
With the commitment promoted by the integration among employees, the teams will have a greater motivation, making work more enjoyable. As a result, each employee will feel more satisfied with their activities, with greater concern about absenteeism, since their participation is important to the company’s activities.
4. Retention of talents
Better integration between employees and teams strengthens the relationship and collaboration, creating a better organizational climate and satisfying each employee professionally. With good working conditions, hardly a member of the team will seek another job, enabling the company to guarantee the retention of talent, valuing its human capital even more.
5. Strengthening communication
The main objective of team building is to promote integration among employees, making them better known, reducing the possibility of small work conflicts and improving communication. Without conflicts, results are more rewarding, improving productivity and ensuring a more harmonious organizational environment.
6. Improving company image
The benefits offered by team building will be reflected directly in the improvement of the company’s image, in its results and in the quality of service. With more satisfied employees, the company demonstrates its ability to create a good working environment, offering better perception to its customers, suppliers and partners.
