Here at Accounts Navigator, we are always looking for new team building activities to complete together. From Ninja Warrior to staff lunches to office trips, we place a high value on working together outside of an office environment for a multitude of reasons, some of which we will list below:
Trust is a fundamental aspect of any team in a business – being able to rely on each other is essential for ensuring all operations within the business are completed effectively. Knowing teams can fall back on each other if the need arises eases the stress that can come with working in the business sector and lead to work being completed more efficiently. Team building allows for people to be proactively share ideas and trust each other’s instincts. These attributes reflect positively into everyday working life and allow for effective collaboration which ensures work is completely efficiently.
The team and I have tackled escape rooms, obstacle courses and surprise events – we try to leave no stone unturned! All of these activities greatly improve your ability to establish healthy and effective methods of communicating without prompting conflict. Being able to establish any problems and cooperatively come up with a solution to overcome it is a skill that can be translated into everyday work.
Working in the business sector comes with its fair share of stress – keeping up with HMRC and Companies House deadlines and regulations while also communicating with clients, marketing, completing company secretarial duties etc. can become overwhelming. Team building activities outside of the office allows for stress relief and unwinding from a high-intensity environment while offering employees an opportunity to have fun.
Knowing how to take control of your business finances to maximise profits can be difficult, especially with the current climate. Knowing the common mistakes to avoid can be difficult and can leave you feeling unsure.
