A well-balanced workplace is what all managers, managing directors and business owners strive for - happy, productive staff that enjoy their roles and have fun while being serious about getting the job done. Productivity, staff happiness and client happiness go hand in hand, so it is imperative for businesses to ensure that these key points are met, with gusto.

Whether you are based in Aberdeen, Manchester, Belfast, and London or anywhere in between, our team events are the best way to maintain high levels of staff morale, which is the foundation of achieving the rest of your well-balanced workplace. 

Aim for Personal Development

So, how do you go about ensuring your staff are happy? Firstly, you need to ensure you are hiring people that are the right fit for your business. More than just having the skills and the capabilities, it is important to find staff who work well together and gel as a team.

Secondly, you need to encourage self-development for each member of staff. Personal growth is an important fundamental measure of whether an individual is happy in their working life, and it isn't hard to achieve, either. Think about opportunities for training and team building events periodically throughout the year and ensure that your staff make use of all the facilities and prospects available to them.

Set Attainable Goals

Being unrealistic with the jobs you are asking of your team can be detrimental to their well-being, and the balance within the workplace. Manage expectations based on skills and merit - asking someone to do the impossible will reduce morale, and, as a result, work soon piles up and adds to stress levels. However, reviewing why certain tasks take more time is a better way of understanding productivity and will allow you to set more attainable goals.

If changes are necessary, then implement these gradually so your staff have time to adjust and adopt the new systems with ease. Assure your staff that change is important for the company to move forward and it is not a reflection of their roles, and your staff will remain content and productive.

Acknowledge Success

It is a psychological fact that you gradually become that which you see every day. If dwellings surround people on mistakes and failings, then they soon see no point in trying to better themselves. Focusing on future successes, overcoming mistakes and growing as a team, as well as individually, is the best way to keep your team positive, motivated and productive.

Acknowledging their successes, no matter how small they may seem, is vital for staff and team morale. Praise the smaller things, reward the big things and most importantly, do so with enthusiasm and sincerity. The positive mindset is crucial to success in business.

Rewarding your staff doesn't always have to be dinner and a staff night out, it can be something that is both beneficial to your staff and your business in disguise. We hold some of the best team building events across the UK and Ireland and our client testimonials are proof of this.
