There are myriad technological solutions intended to replicate the effect of in-person interaction. While these tools are not without merit in an increasingly mobile and remote workplace, nothing will ever replace the impact of true face time; face-to-face interaction in the right environment creates experiences that drive team cohesion unlike anything else.
No amount of banter or screen sharing over Skype and GoToMeeting will ever facilitate the level of personal interaction required to foster the group growth successful organizations need. There is something about sharing experiences on a deeper, visceral level that is just part of the human experience.
Whether it’s having your team be able to actually sit together at the round table while planning strategy or hosting a social event where the personalities, preferences, quirks and strengths of each person come to the forefront, the bonds created during shared group experiences will do far more for your company than saving a few dollars ever could. The right alchemy of environment, initiative and creativity is where opportunity emerges.
We are huge proponents of technology and using it to your advantage whenever appropriate, but teambuilding experiences are an important investment in creating a successful business structure. A business is only as good its people, and the value human interaction should never be understated. Teambuilding creates a culture of success among individuals and colleagues. Optimize the way your busniess functions by enabling an environment of collaboration and communication, and the results will be more than worth your time and effort.
