NZ Staff Events
How important are staff activities for business?
Staff activities provide an opportunity for people to get to know each other better in a relaxed environment. Staff events demonstrate to staff in a practical way that you appreciate their efforts and are willing to invest profit into rewarding them. Getting staff together socially provides an opportunity to see aspects of individuals' personalities that you might not otherwise see in a work environment. Many of our clients organise staff events because they just want their staff to have a little fun together. Research shows that happy staff perform better, feel part of the work community and provide better service to customers. The bottom line is increased staff retention and happy staff will generally be more productive.
Staff events provide an opportunity for people to be brought together in different groups to that they normally work in, and to meet with people who they might communicate with through email but not actually meet in person.
Staff of New Zealand businesses are increasingly looking for "fun" as an element of their workplace and a motivator of their loyalty and performance. Regular staff activities can add fun and provide opportunities to relieve some of the pressures normally found at work.
More formal team building and group development activities, as well as having the key ingredient of fun, focus more on building communication and interpersonal relationships than does a team bonding activity where the shared experience is what counts. erewards offers team building activities that can bring a focus to develop or highlight different aspects of successful team behaviour.
What are the benefits of staff activities and events?
- Create Fun associated with work - a key factor for successful employers
- Happy staff perform better and want to stay = better customer service
- Build rapport, communication and a joint sense of mission in your teams to make them more effective
- Show staff they are valued and increase staff retention
