Team building is crucial to good long term performance
When you are working in a team cohesion is essential if you want to drive good long term results for your business and clients/customers. There are lots of issues that can crop up in the day to day activities in an office and whilst many of them will have to be dealt with by HR, team building activities can provide a good long term way of increasing camaraderie and reducing friction in your team.
People that enjoy working together will benefit from greater problem-solving skills and an increased ability to strategize and work out which person is best for which role within a project. Also, team building does more than just increase the mood between workers, it can introduce new ways of thinking and approaching problems that will help you to drive much better results for your clients.

In the age of conference calls and Zoom meetings, it is also essential to get some form of if not face to face interaction between team members at least a strong sense of purpose and identity to ensure that everyone is working towards the same worthwhile goal.
