Every business has to contend with the dreaded January blues when their employees come back into the office off the back of a well-earned break, missing the morning's they did not have to answer to an alarm clock.

In order to restore the morale in your office - as well as the smiles and enthusiasm - it is important to kick off the year as you mean to go on and there is no better way to blow away any cobwebs than to organise a team building day in January!

BRINGING THE TEAM TOGETHER

A well-planned team building event will bring your team members closer together by working as a collective unit away from the usual office surroundings.

Organising an event that will require employees to work as a team, requiring them to assign tasks to one another, will bring a group together. Also, taking employees out of the office in a completely new setting will eliminate any personal and/or political barriers that may be present among the group holding them back in the workplace.

This will see new, positive relationships formed that will then be carried over to the office.

KICKING OFF THE YEAR IN STYLE

Planning a fun team building day in January will give your employees something to look forward to at the beginning of the year, helping to banish that post-Christmas slump that many offices suffer from in the opening month.

Many successful businesses develop an approach to team building that sees personal recognition acknowledged, while the real plaudits are awarded to team members who achieve more by working together. In turn, this solidifies that the value of the team is greater than the sum of its individual parts and that everyone - no matter their role - has a key part to play.

BUILDING THE TEAM DYNAMIC

Team dynamics will, of course, vary based on the personalities within the team, and, even if there are one or two clashes, it doesn't mean that they are unable to work together towards a collective goal.

Setting a team building task in a fun and relaxed environment will help build trust between team members, with everyone's strengths and weaknesses becoming more apparent.

Less confident individuals will also gain a confidence boost when noticing that they may be stronger in areas where others are less so - all of which are important to the individual as well as the team.

The balance of the team will become more apparent with all members able to see where they can improve, both individually and collectively as they learn more about their group and about themselves as a person.

Positive Result

After spending a rewarding and morale-boosting day together, your team will become a well-oiled machine that is ready to race out of the starting blocks.
