Press release from: onecommerce

Team building is the act of engaging a team physically, mentally or a combination of both to complete challenges that enhance communication, collaboration, improve problem solving skills and creative thinking. Team building challenges can also often be converted to address your pain points, key conference themes or to just have fun!

Why Team Building?

If you are a manger, a CEO, or a team leader you may be asking yourself if team building is worth investing in for your team. Team building is only for teams who are looking to level up in their chosen industry. What leveling up looks like for your team is totally up to you! Whether it is giving back to the community through a CSR event, tackling key issues, or rewarding them after a long year with an epic Christmas party for the ages.

Below are 5 signs that your team needs team building. For more, you can check


Team building is often thought of as being the result of one of the below situations. However, many teams look to team building to enhance and improve their already fantastic teams! Managers also look at team building to reward. If a successful year has passed, then rewarding your team with a team-building event is the ultimate prize.

Staff Turnover

A clear indication that your team needs team building is a high staff turnover. Maybe you lost a key player to retirement or maternity leave and your team is feeling a little lost without them. This is clear indication that they don't feel like a team anymore. The team feels disjointed, and they are unsure of how to reconnect. Team building is a great way for this team to let their guard down, think creatively with one another, and spend quality time learning about each member. Returning to the office connected and motivated.


Arriving late at work, taking more sick days, not focused, unengaged with colleagues & not being present in meetings are all signs of an unmotivated team. Unmotivated individuals can quickly multiply into unmotivated teams if kept unchecked. If your team or even a few individuals tick any of the signs above, ensure that you take action.

Poor Efficiency

The best indicator that you need team building is low rates of efficiency and productivity. Team building assists teams in efficiency, whether they set goals to motivate them towards or build a more supportive corporate culture.


We've all been there, when a team member will start talking about a colleague behind their back. The next time this happens, watch how quickly the attitude of the entire workplace turns. These situations and small snide comments have the power to change your workplace culture and the respect each member of your team holds for one another and the company itself. Team Building provides an opportunity to address issues and can also prevent such issues occurring in the first place.

7 Benefits of Team Building Activities

If you want to build trust, have fun, improve connection, efficiency or motivate your team then team building is for you! But if you are still wondering if team building is worth your investment, then have a look below at the 5 key benefits to team building.


Team building events lay the foundations of trust through a range of activities. For a team to be able to work efficiently they need to be able to have faith, understanding that each person is capable of the role they were assigned. This also means having faith that when someone needs help, they will ask for it. Have you ever encountered people who like to handle everything themselves? Eventually they get so overwhelmed that they end up burning out, making more mistakes, or even quitting. If you know a few individuals that fall into this category it may be time for a team building event and work on trust within your team.


If having a more connected team is one of your goals for this financial year, then consider a team building activity. A connected team often operates on the same page, one person can pick up where the other left off. Connection comes from an understanding of workplace culture and a deeper connection with the individuals in the team. Being able to respectfully ask them about their lives and understanding where each person has come from can optimise your team. Team building helps your team to become more connected through icebreaker challenges and alternative thinking.

New ventures

Each team member has experienced life differently, causing them to process the world through varying ways, resulting in a collection of innovation that sparks new ideas for the company. Employees are a great untapped resource when it comes to creating new ventures. Often teams have a variety of new ideas that are never shown to managers due to concern over how the idea will be received. Even if they don't have a specific idea yet, if you allocate time through a team building exercise, to workshop new ventures, providing them tools to innovate, the benefits will surprise you.

Enhance Capabilities

One of the key aspects of team building is the enhanced capabilities of the team. Present in all team building activities are challenges that engage problem solving and lateral thinking. As teams engage in these challenges, they must use alternative thinking, introducing new neural pathways that they can then use in their role at the company. This helps your team to efficiently solve problems, improve productivity and proactivity.


Appreciation is often overlooked in the workplace. A low appreciation rate is present in a workplace just before it becomes destructive. In the context of teams, appreciation is when each individual member of the team appreciates firstly everyone's specific roles, the importance of that role and the individual. Appreciation of this kind can also be directly linked to respect and the notion of 'one team'. You must know how others contribute to the team to understand the struggles they face and appreciate each role & individual within the team.
