A strong company has increased productivity, positive relationships, and more creativity. You should have no doubt that your company can stand strong in any economic climate and do more when employees function as a team rather than individually in the workplace. But what makes a strong company?
Start with your team. According to Teambuilding Statistics and Facts, camaraderie promotes group loyalty and dedication to work. Socializing between team members improves communication patterns more than 50%. When employees are familiar with the team, their performance improves over time.
Does your team have camaraderie? Do they show good teamwork? At Impact Branding Consulting, we believe that the growing power of the company is supported by the team.
Growing Stronger with Camaraderie
Camaraderie happens when a team of people grows together, they enjoy workplace relationships, and support each other’s skills and talents. To improve camaraderie, help your employees get to know each other and be comfortable discussing a variety of workplace and industry issues. Your company will benefit when your team has better working relationships with one another.
One way to help everyone feel more comfortable working with one another is through regular teambuilding activities. Training and development activities that involve everyone can help develop trust and form bonds. Having an open company culture to encourage communication that is clear and transparent can also help build workplace camaraderie. Impact Branding helps companies create and sustain healthy happy working environments.
Another important fact is having an employee who is a good fit for the culture. For example, include on-boarding training for new employees to help them quickly align with your company’s mission, support its values, and meet team members. During the on-boarding process, clarify the company’s expectations and work ethic by establishing a 30-60-90 day ramp up process which includes regular intervals for check ins.
Create Great Environments that Encourage Teamwork
Teamwork happens when your employees function well together and help each other to get their collective work done for the success of the company. Two key aspects of strong teamwork are a shared vision and setting unified goals. When everyone on your team knows the company’s goals and vision, they better understand their role and how their role directly affects the company from top to bottom.
When teamwork is encouraged, your company can benefit with increased productivity and positive workplace relationships. Your employees are more supportive of the group, aware of how their assignments connect with the rest of the team and have increased trust that everyone is doing their part. As a result, teamwork helps boost employee’s job satisfaction, morale and retention.
A great first step in strengthening teamwork in your company is by clarifying job roles, performance goals and responsibilities. It is also important to place the right people in the right positions based on their experience and abilities.
Another important way to strengthen teamwork is through training and development. Increase the collective knowledge of the team by encouraging them to train in relevant subjects and applications. Help them do their jobs more effectively with training that boosts their performance and builds their confidence.
A Win-Win for Everyone
When a company has camaraderie and teamwork, it’s a win-win-win for you, your team and your customers. You have a team that performs more effectively and efficiently. Your team feels more appreciated and satisfied with their job and has a positive attitude about working for your company.
