How important are staff activities and team building for business and how can these be improved?
Staff activities provide an opportunity for people to get to know each other better in a relaxed environment. The benefit for your business is that it shows staff that you appreciate their efforts, it also allows you the opportunity to see aspects of individual’s personality that you might not otherwise see in a work environment. Many of our clients organise staff events because they just want their staff to have a little fun together. Research shows that happy staff perform better, feel part of the work community and provide better service to customers. The bottom line is increased turnover for your business.
Staff events provide an opportunity for people to be brought together in different groups to that they normally work in, and to meet with people who they might work with through electronic communications but not actually meet in person.
Staff of New Zealand businesses are increasingly looking for “Fun” as an element of their workplace and a motivator of their loyalty and performance. Regular staff activities can add fun and provide opportunities to relieve some of the pressures normally found at work.
More formal team building and group development activities, as well as having the key ingredient of fun, focus more on building communication and interpersonal relationships than does a team bonding activity where the shared experience is what counts. eRewards offers team building activities that can bring a focus to develop or highlight different aspects of successful team behaviour.

Create Fun associated with work – a key factor for successful employers.
- Happy staff perform better and want to stay = better customer service.
