Team building is a collective term for various types of activities used to enhance social relations and define roles within teams, often involving collaborative tasks. It is distinct from team training, to improve the efficiency, rather than interpersonal relations.
The purpose of Team buildings is to bind the group, so that they get to know each other and begin having a sense of TEAM. It is at this stage that team buildings activities will help bind them and to align them to their shared purpose, goals and targets.
On the 5th November 2016, Volvo Cars Pretoria After Sales Staff with their Managers went to Bounce Menlyn Maine as part of their Team Building. ‘Well, it was the most fun we’ve had in a very long time’, said one of the Workshop Staff. One of our drivers further said he didn’t think or realised that trampolining is fun no matter how old you are and that it actually makes you feel younger and proved to themselves how strong they are!
Their Staff were super-friendly, helpful and efficient which added to it being a perfect day out. And to wrap the day up, the Volvo Staff went for lunch and drinks at Oppiplaas Restaurant in Waverly where they dined, chat and got to know each other more and good friendships were made and everyone got to understand the purpose of a Team Building and how important it is for a company.
