I recently spoke with Tom Seymour, Sales Director at Durham County Cricket Club who believes that you can build teamwork in your workplace through sports — especially cricket. He tells us why he thinks this is.
Every manager and business owner aims to have a motivated and productive team behind them. A survey from ESI International found that over 65% of project professionals believed their company’s performance would improve if its teams worked more collaboratively. To achieve this, it is essential that everyone is able to get along with one another, as serious breakdowns in communication can lead to lost productivity. Team-building exercises can be an excellent way of giving your employees the chance to bond in an informal, low-pressure environment. If done well, this can have a lasting impact on workplace productivity.
