Although not true for business or organisation, for the majority, the following holds some semblance of truth for workers up and down the country: Past the interview stage, most senior managers, directors and business owners will not make daily contact with employees, reinforcing the worker / management divide. This can be detrimental to the success of the business, so we have put together some suggestions for improving employer and employee relationships.

Here at Team Challenge Company, we relish the opportunity to bring workers and management together with our team building activities, because we believe you are stronger together. While business owners and the majority of directors will often have many years of experience and knowledge on their side, a lot can still be learnt from the bottom line.

If you are interested in improving the working relationships within your business, then please keep reading.


While the idea of a role reversal isn't always practical, the boss getting involved with tea rounds, getting involved with customers and working more closely with the staff that is the face of their business can prove to be very beneficial.

Not only will it highlight just how hard these members of staff work, but it also gives insight into how processes and services can be improved for the benefit of staff, customers and the business as a whole.

Similarly, scheduling in time for the boss to spend time in each department will reinforce the relationships that were built during the interview process, and allows for management to review roles and skill sets at their current level. This is a great way of exploring ways to develop and train staff appropriately for personal development that is mutually beneficial for all parties.

This time, although useful for a commercial and management perspective, will encourage and motivate staff to reach their full potential, inspire them to achieve more and push their careers forward.


Time spent building a team that is on the same page professionally is vital to the success of the team, as well as the entire company. Building a team that is based on mutual respect and a variety of valued skills is imperative to the happiness and strength of your team. Building a team that is like-minded and professional? That is the goal.

However well your team are performing, there will always be room for improvement when it comes to building team spirit and boosting morale. Team building activities on a regular basis that are devised around your need is a fantastic way of achieving this important people management KPIs.

Our team building and development days are tailored to your specific needs and provide your staff members with a wonderful day of strengthening relationships and learning valuable skills.
