Think Tank Thursday: Team-Building Games Your Employees Won’t Dread

No matter what the size of the company, smart managers know the importance of team-building. And that doesn’t just mean all the employees are on the same page from a business strategy standpoint, but that there is a genuine feeling of being on a team together, marching forward toward the same goal. Each person has a role to play, and they give it their all because they don’t want to let their teammates down.

According to the website When I Work, a Minneapolis/St. Paul human resource consulting firm, companies that employ team-building tactics tend to bring in 2 ½ times as much revenue as those that don’t, and studies have shown that employees who feel engaged at work are 87 percent less likely to seek employment elsewhere.

When I Work has compiled a thorough list of team-building games, including What Makes You Tick?, Show and Tell, What’s On Your Desk? and This is Better Than That.
