Teamwork makes the dream work!
Posted at 16:00 in : Blog
Teamwork plays such a vital part in any business. How can you as an employer encourage it?
Collaboration – the action of working with someone to produce something. It’s so important to see this in action within a business, yet so many say they are collaborative but struggle to put it into practise on a daily basis.
We’ve got some good ideas to help you create that collaborative team you’ve always wanted. The first one is to make sure everyone understands what is going on. It’s important that everyone knows what they’re aiming for and that they’re heading in the same direction. Sit down together and discuss your short and long-term goals, and leave lots of time at the end for any questions your employees may have.
Secondly, create an environment where you collaborate together. Perhaps some comfortable chairs for your chosen room, or some beanbags, might be an option. Make that space yours, put your team’s mark on it and it will be your collaborative haven forever more. In short, collaboration needs a location!
Thirdly, always be open and honest. Let people know what your expectations are before you begin collaborating, and be truthful about ideas that people throw out there. It’s better to discard an idea you know won’t work and move on rather than waste time thinking too much about it.
All of these things would be better with one more thing – a drink! Do you have a drinks machine nearby? If not, it’s a good idea to think about installing one for your employees to enjoy. When you’re sitting down to get your thinking caps on and collaborate, it’s easier with a hot or cold drink in hand. A coffee can stimulate your mind, or a lovely cold water can rehydrate you – whatever they choose, your team will surely benefit from brainstorming with a drink!
Team work really does make the dream work – especially with a tea, coffee or anything from the huge range of drinks that we offer from our drinks vending machines!
