Why Team Building is So Important

Why Team building is so important and how it can help your business

A lot of employees wonder why team building is so important and as an employer you will always be trying to find new ways to help your staff work more efficiently. Team building events are a great way to bring people together outside their usual working environment.

So what are the classic team building events and why do employers pick certain activities? But even more importantly, how do you prepare for one so that you put on a good performance for your staff? Most employers see team building events as a way to improve working relationships between members of their teams and as a positive step to improving employee motivation. But they need to make sure they pick the right event to ensure their staff enjoy participating in the activity and that it has a positive effect on the workforce. This is why team building is so important.Why team building is so important

Sometimes these events can involve physical exercises such as abseiling down mountains or canoeing through rapids. These are all great fun but you need to make sure everyone within the company will be up for participating in such an active event that could be out of their fitness level and comfort zone. Other times you may choose more mental challenges such as completing projects against time and scoring points with quiz’s. This is more suited to everyone’s capabilities but some may feel its not as exciting and less memorable. These days the list of options is endless and it can be challenging just trying to decide what to go for. This is why you need to research it first and even have a chat with an event company.

The most common activity and most unplanned is an evening of drinks at a local bar or going out for a meal after work. You may not see this as a team-building exercise, but your employers don’t just put money behind the bar for nothing. They’re hoping that you’ll use the opportunity to get to know each other so you can work together as a more cohesive unit. Whilst this can have a positive effect, it is often not as successful as a planned event where people are forced to work as a team to achieve a goal together. Having a few drinks or grabbing a pizza once a month can be great for some social time away from the office but in reality it is not as successful in helping your colleagues achieve more professionally.

When choosing a team building activity you are trying to pick an event that consists of these basic points.

– Engaging
– Encourages leadership
– Involves problem solving
– Shows staff confidence
– Shows determination
– Uses brainpower
– Shows your employee’s personalities

Be Bold

When picking a team building event why not go for something completely different? Something that will excite your staff and bring everyone together to create something memorable. At work, there is a hierarchy which we have to conform to but on a team building day, if run properly, everybody is equal and having fun.

Team building activities are often met with scepticism and are frequently stereotyped as being cringy, dull, clichéd and out of date. But fear not, the Rock & Roll Experience is here to help. And we specialise in fun team building events!

We take the time to listen to our customers to find out exactly what they want the event to achieve. Are they looking for riotous fun to reward their team? Are they trying to reinforce a key message? Whatever it is, we listen to that and work with them to incorporate it and build our event around it.

We find that every organisation has a different need and requirement. Every client knows what makes their guys and girls tick. Every work group thrives on different things. At the Rock and Roll Experience our event coordinators always ensure that they establish the company’s needs and tailor each event to meet that requirement. We always ask our customers what their goals are and what they wish to achieve and take away from our events.

“Seems we will be calling on you again real soon. The fact we want to use you again says it all!!” Claire Chilton – GE Aviation

Our friendly and personal approach enables us to work closely with our clients to ensure that we deliver an engaging, unforgettable and fun team building experience that really connects you to your team and drives the workforce in a positive way to promote team work and unity in your workplace. Weather you are looking for just a few hours, half a day or a whole day, the Rock and Roll experience can cater for any need.

Team building checklist – team building planning tips

Simple Team Building Checklist

 Team building checklist tips to help you plan a team building event

If you are looking to plan a team building event for your company, you want to ensure that you book something that is fun and engaging but also fulfils its purpose and has a positive effect on everyone involved. Here are a few simple steps for you to think about before you begin your research with our team building checklist.

Team building checklist, team building, events, corporate events1. Identify company needs

The first question you should ask yourself is, “What needs to be improved in the corporation and what do you want from the team building activity?” If you can establish this in the first instance then you can target your search for activities on the most effective options to achieve the desired result. You need to ensure you are aware of the aims and outcomes of the chosen team building event before you start researching the different types of events.

2. Budget

Most team building companies are flexible with their pricing and can change the event to help accommodate you. So it does help to be forth coming with the amount you are willing to spend so that they can help you find an activity that fits in with your costings. Most team building companies have a variety of different activities and events with various pricing levels so there is something for everyone.

3. Venue

Perhaps you have a favourite luxurious hotel in London or, depending on the event you choose, you may wish to have the activity take place at your premises. In a lot of cases the team building company can organise the venue for you or are happy to just guide you to get the right venue and ensure you have thought about the logistics for the day. Just remember to think about the size of rooms, layout,  location, accessibility for staff and potential AV equipment.

4. Agenda

Its always good when planning something for your staff to write up an agenda and programme for the day. It will help prevent you from forgetting anything but also these types of events do tend to run over so its good to have a timescale of what you would like to happen and when you would like your team building to start and finish. The team building company will be there to ensure their part of the day runs smoothly but in between you may wish to have an inspirational guest speaker or a member of your management team talk about the success of the company and his or her views for the future. You will have lunch, tea breaks, etc so all of this should be taken into consideration prior to the booking of an event so you know how the day or days are going to run.

rock and roll experience 5. Talk to your staff

This is very important. If employees are asked for ideas then they need to be dealt with constructively. If the ideas are dismissed or ignored it tends to make people feel they have wasted their time or are not a valued staff member. Everyone will have different views on what they consider to be beneficial for the company and what they think will be a good team building event. Depending on how big your company is you may wish to have a few smaller meetings with each team leader to establish everyone’s views and ideas. You can then take 3 of these options and request quotes from each company you have selected.

6. Open your mind

Finally be open minded because you may find that the majority of your employees want to go for something totally different to what you expected. But that’s ok because it’s predominantly down to them and if your staff are happy then you should be happy. Team building is an extremely important and vital part of any company. In recent years it has become more popular and has been proven to increase employee moral and positivity, which in turn will have a huge impact on the success of your company.

We hope our Team building checklist has been of help to you and will help you to book an amazing team building activity for your staff. If you would like to have more information about the events on our website then please Get in touch today for a no obligation quote.

6 Essential steps to help working together in the workplace

 Working together at work is crucial

Here’s how to make it happen

Were put together 6 essential steps to help working together in the workplace and help make your office environment more harmonious. The concept of your employers working well together seems like an easy one, you all come to the same building, to work hard, to better yourselves professionally in order to earn more and progress in life; it sounds simple. However there are a few things that you can adhere to thus ensuring that the work journey for you and your staff is a successful one.

1. Respect Space

The first step to working together is ensuring that you respect one another’s space. If you are constantly stepping on your colleagues toes or being overbearing within the workplace you may find that the office harmony isn’t so great and that they don’t want to work with you. So always ask before entering a persons cubicle or office, be respectful and they will in turn do the same to you. It’s important that everyone feels like they have control of their work area.

2. Respect Time

The second step and also just as important as the first is respect people’s time. If you are allowed access to a colleagues work space try and refrain from discussing personal issues, unless they are also a friend and the conversation is not predominately work related. If not then stick to the point and be professional. Your colleague might be working to am important deadline and their time is just as valuable as yours.

3. Reward and Encourage

The third step to working well with your colleagues is to encourage those working with and around you to be as creative as possible. Also try to be appreciative of each other. Everyone is a valuable asset to the company and this appreciation will spur everyone to work harder for the same goal. So a pat on the back or a high five can really go a long way in ensuring everyone is working hard and feels good about themselves. As a manager or team leader you have greater control over rewarding those around you with bonuses or other perks, such as a day off, gym membership, or perhaps start a employer of the month system to help people achieve their work goals.

4. Take advantage of resources

Another good way to provide a positive atmosphere within the workplace is to ensure that all staff have access to training programmes that help workers become more efficient in their roles. More available resources make people feel more confident when doing their jobs and it gives them that extra support without having to constantly ask managers if they are stuck.

5. Be Supportive

Offering support in person to each person working with you or under you is something a lot of employers forget. It is important that the workplace maintains an open-door policy that encourages all staff to come to you with problems that they cannot resolve on their own. If you cannot help, you can direct that person toward the benefits or resources that can help them.

6. Arrange Fun Events

Finally, organise some team building activities for your company, as the rewards from high team effectiveness are well worth it. This is why team building activities really do help your business by enhancing employee relationships thus making your office environment a good one to work in.

Thriller Team Building Dance Event

The Thriller Team Building Experience

Our Thriller team building dance event is so exciting that even the undead become energized. Oh yes, here we take Michael Jackson’s iconic Thriller dance routine and give your work colleagues the chance to be the stars of the show.

Using professional choreographers, we teach you the classic moves from the famous Thriller routine before bringing it all together to learn it for a full performance. Absolutely no dance experience is required and even those with two left feet will have no trouble joining in. thriller team building

Our make-up artist will then give you a short tutorial on how to transform yourselves into realistic zombies and  provide the make up and costumes. All that is left now is to get focused, get into character and give the performance of your lives. We also have Michael’s iconic red and black track suit so someone can become the legend himself! If you have a CEO or manager with a good sense of fun then it can work really well for them to play the part of Jacko.

If you want this as a shorter energiser session, then we can avoid the zombie make-up and get right down to it with the dance routine, whatever you decide it will be a unique event that will be remembered in years to come.

So whether you want this as a smaller group affair for two hours with zombie makeovers, or a 30 minute energiser at a large conference, this Thriller team building event will leave your audience laughing and pumped up with excitement.

“We are often invited to PA/EA functions and I can safely say this was the best event I’ve been to in my 7 years as a PA. The event was well organised, the staff were superb and the activities were all of a high standard. Kindest Regards, Charlotte “

Why not film the fun? Our film crew can capture all the fun in high definition and edit it for you to keep those zombie memories for all to enjoy.

Top Team Building Tips

 Follow our team building tips for maximum success

Within any organisation team building and teamwork skills are critical for the effectiveness of how your business is run. Understanding teamwork can make you a more effective manager and employee. Here are some team building tips to help.

The first crucial factor of a teamwork success is that all employees are working towards the same goals and have the same views on what they are trying to achieve. This relies on good communication within the team and that everyone gets on enough to work to their full capacity; harmony within the workplace is very important.

The other important element is the diversity of skills and personalities. This is when people use their strengths in full, but are also compensating for each other’s weaknesses.teambuilding top tips

Here are some additional team building tips and ideas to help your business succeed:

  • Make sure that the team goals are totally clear, completely understood and accepted by each team member.
  • Make sure everyone within the company is aware of what they are responsible for and what their roles are. Do your best to avoid overlaps of authority. For example, if there is a risk that two team members will be competing for control in a certain area, try to divide that area into two distinct parts and give each person more control in one of those parts, according to those individual’s strengths.
  • Try to involve the whole team in the decision making process. For example, use group sessions to discuss ideas and solutions to problems. What you want to achieve here is that each team member feels his or her ownership in the final decision, solution, or idea and that everyone’s views and opinions are heard. The more he or she feels this way, the more likely he or she is to agree with and commit to the decided line of action and will work harder to achieve it.
  • Make sure there are no blocked lines of communications and you and your people stay fully informed.
  • Build trust with your team members by spending one on one time in an atmosphere of openness and honesty. Be loyal to your employees if you expect the same back from them.
  • Allow your office team members to build trust and openness between each other in team building activities and events. Give them some opportunities of extra social time with each other in an atmosphere that encourages open communication. For example, in a group lunch on Friday or a drink after work paid for by the company.
  • Be careful with interpersonal issues. Recognise them early and deal with them untill they are resolved.
  • Never miss opportunities to empower your employees. Say thank you or show appreciation of an individual team player’s work. Always try to stay positive.
  • Do not limit yourself to negative feedback. Be fair. Whenever there is an opportunity, give positive feedback.
Finally, though teamwork and team building can be challenging, the rewards from high team effectiveness are well worth it. This is why team building activities really do help your business by enhancing employee relationships thus making your office environment a good one to work in.
