Accommodation on the Vaal River

Banish the January Blues by Booking Your Team into Accommodation on the Vaal River


Are you looking for ways in which to improve your team culture? As 2019 begins, many businesses take the time to reflect over what went well, what did not go well at all, and what changes could be made to boost your chances of success. It’s the desire of every organisation to succeed, but in today’s tough economic climate, many organisations forget that in order to succeed, they need a lot more than just an admirable product or service. Fortunately, many organisations are slowly waking up to the importance of a hardworking and dedicated workforce. Not only can a happy, healthy, and engaged workforce set an organisation apart, but when you have a culture of engagement, employees work with a sense of purpose, pride, and teamwork. But this doesn’t just happen by chance – business owners need to invest in their employees.


The Incredible Benefits of Team Building


The key to the survival of any business is a motivated and engaged workforce, but knowing how to keep your team motivated on a daily basis can be a tough challenge, even more so when the highs of the festive season have passed. Interestingly, an unmotivated employee is not necessarily an incompetent employee. An unmotivated employee is rather a symptom of a larger problem. It could be that the employee is feeling underappreciated and unrecognised, or it could be a lack of direction and communication from managers. While there are many reasons for unmotivated and disengaged employees,  it is up to you as the business owner to find creative ways in which to keep your employees consistently energised and motivated, and team building hits the ball right out of the park. Here are some excellent benefits of team building:


  • Betters communication amongst employees.
  • Boosts productivity and betters sales.
  • Breaks down barriers in the workplace.
  • Contributes towards trust amongst team members.
  • Enhances a unified
  • Highlights the value of having fun in the workplace.
  • Identifies barriers to positive morale and highlights strategies to better morale.
  • Introduces problem-solving skills.
  • Provides the opportunity to learn about each other and grow respect for each.
  • Recognises leadership qualities.
  • Reinforces and evolves the culture in the workplace.
