Making team building work for your company objectives

Author: Keltram Group | Date Published: 08 March 2011 09h00 | Article Release


Objectives are the driving force behind a company. Without a solid plan and vision set out, a company has no real structure to follow. Team building is one of the most successful ways to create or reform the bond between employees, but keeping company objectives in mind during team building is key.

Team building has become a popular method for many businesses to strengthen their teams. When the lessons learnt are enforced properly in the workplace, they can benefit a company in various ways.

  • Improves communication
  • Trust
  • Motivation
  • Shared positive experience
  • Promotes ideas/ participation
  • Improves leadership
  • Organisational skills
  • Helps break down barriers

These are of course some of the more obvious benefits of team building, however there are a large number more. When a company has clear objectives in mind before they participate in team building, employees will have a common goal to reach whilst taking part in the team building activities.

Matching team building to company objectives is beneficial to all employees. Staff are able to focus on the importance of the activities rather than just the fun aspects of them.

Keltram offers companies a variety of team building activities. All of these are designed to focus on certain areas that either need improvement or direction. Before taking part in team building, companies need to relook their objectives. A good way of doing this is to follow the SMART formula.

  • Specific- what exactly do you want to achieve?
  • Measurable- how can we measure if we are meeting the objectives or not?
  • Achievable- are the objectives achievable?
  • Realistic- are the objectives realistic with the resources that are available?
  • Time- when do you want to achieve objectives by?

These guidelines will assist a company in reaching the objectives that have been set out. Once there is a clear vision in sight, it will certainly be easier for companies to decide exactly what areas they need to focus on in team building.

Keltram offers numerous activities that allow companies to customise the goal or target. Being a part of a team allows employees to work together, strategize and reach a common goal as a group. This is a great way to highlight how all staff members need to work together in order to perform as a team.

Team building is a fun way to get everyone out of an office environment and work together on more of a social level. However, if thought through properly it can also be highly beneficial to the relationships between employees and teams within a company, assisting general work performance.
