PC World Magazine recently examined how companies can build an ‘all in’ corporate culture.  The article looked at how partners and collaborators who specialise in employee recognition, teamwork and culture, had long ago identified keys to building teams whose success could generate such strong momentum as to transform entire organisations.

Very interestingly, the article points to a study which analysed 300,000 people involving 25 high-performing companies, which helped to identify the traits of workplace cultures where employees believe in their leaders, but also understand and work for the company’s mission, values and goals. The research concluded that employees at such companies exhibit “the three Es”: and these are engaged, enabled and energised. Particularly notable was that the study was conducted during the height of the recent recession and yet when financial data from a pool of 50 global companies was studied, those that displayed high levels of the three Es also had average annual operating margins of 27.4 percent.

Building a strong team must revolve around shared experiences and group activities.  Team Building in Derbyshire and the Midlands certainly has its benefits when one consider that the region is home to a large number of outdoor activity centres, which cover watersports, motorsports, target sports and much more.  Hard Days Knight works with a number of these centres, providing corporate clients with tailor-made, bespoke packages that complement a team’s specific objectives.  To discuss your team building weekend, get in touch with a member of our friendly, professional team!
