Top Trends that will Redefine Team Building in 2020
“Great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by a team of people.”
As years pass by, the corporate trends, policies, and practices also evolve. With 2020 seeping in, team building activities also need to be revised as per the emerging trends. Here are a few trends that will redefine Team Building Programs in 2020 and help you and your team hit the ground with excitement from the beginning of the year.
1. Team Building Programs focused on Real Projects
In the previous years, we have seen a lot of corporates giving emphasis on team building programs through role-plays and fun-based activities. But now the companies are realizing that the focus needs to be more result-oriented vis-à-vis the money spent. Hence the emerging trend is to ensure that employees have fun team building programs but it should also have a quantifiable business outcome.
2. Projects focused on Involving Remote Employees
Nowadays, remote employment has taken a new rise. Many companies are adapting to Flexi working policy that not only help employees maintain a work-life balance but saves on soaring office space costs too. However, the biggest disadvantage for remote employees is not being able to develop a personal connection and bond with their other team members. We thus see a trend in finding new ways to involve them in team-building programs rather than just seeing them once a while on digital screen during meetings and other discussions.
3. Creating Compelling Work Environment and Experience
Gone are the days when team engagement programs meant outbound fun-filled activities. With the emerging trends and more of the millennium workforce, employees are looking for new experiences at work and a more connected and bonded environment. Hence new trends are coming up to ensure that team building programs are done at every stage of a project through unconventional means and not just a one-time activity.
With the increase and advancement in technology and AI, companies are also looking up to trends that leverage the technology in team-building programs for an effective business outcome.
