How the Power of Play Influences Success at Work
Many people are working longer and harder, thinking that this will solve the problem of an ever-increasing workload. The repercussion; they are still falling behind, becoming chronically overwhelmed, burning out, and becoming disengaged.
How do we fix this? Employee engagement.
Companies that encourage employee engagement through team building activities are ultimately more successful. Success at work doesn’t depend on the amount of time you work, it depends on the quality of your work. And the quality of your work is highly dependent on your well-being.
Why team building? They are more productive and happy which in turn, creates a positive work culture. Since work is where we spend much of our time, it is especially important for us to play during work!
Facts. If our word, and proven track record isn’t enough, a study by the International Journal of Marketing and Human Resource Management (IJMHRM) confirms the effectiveness of team building exercises. You can read the study here.
Whether you’re a team leader or C-level executive, the success of your company depends on your team.
Without some recreation, our quality of work suffers.
We spend most of our time at work. Taking the time to replenish yourself through play is one of the best things you can do for your career. When the project you’re working on hits a serious glitch (as it often happens), heading out for a long lunch with your coworkers, playing some games in the office, or even shooting some hoops on a court nearby can help clear your mind of frustration. This means when you get back to fixing that “glitch”, you’ll approach it with a fresh, new positive attitude, actually minimizing mistakes.
