The goals of a successful team building
The study conducted by Emeraude in March 2021 among 1000 employees all over Europe show that 86% employees think their relationship with their teams is a key factor to stay at their company. 70% believe they work better when they have good relationship with their colleagues. A study from Stimulus Observatoire du stress au travail (Observatory of stress at work) points out the most prominent professional stress factors: for 33% of the surveyed employees, the lack of moral support at work is a source of stress; for 29% of them, the feeling of not being useful is also one, for 27% of them a bad work atmosphere is one …
What solutions to provide in order to improve and meet your employees’ needs? The team building
Inspired by the world of sport, team building describes the need for a united team to obtain a desired result. No World Cup victory without a competitive and in harmony team. No performance or no growth for an organization without happy and in harmony employees.
The team building serves various purposes, and it offers a wide range of benefits
- It develops cohesion, creates ties between employees and managers: the team building activities are collective activities which gather a lot of opposite profiles. In a large company or in a team working remotely, creating opportunities to catch up and to discover each other is essential. It may also sometimes punctually help to settle some conflict situations.
- It improves collaboration and communication and generates team spirit – employees learn to think better together in a different context, to provide each other mutual aid. They gain discussion and communication skills which they may implement easily in their day-to-day professional life.
- It ensures a recreational break for employees – offering a moment for sharing, escaping, and fun helps to relax. The friendliness with a team ensures good relationships and an energy re-boost
- It simulates creativity – the team building helps breaking the routine and having the teams live different experiences and so developing their creativity. Offering extra-ordinary experiences may reveal some employees’ ignored talents ignored and as such fosters innovative spirit.
- It challenges teams – the team building activities often take a game format with objectives like scoring or winning. It boosts employee competitivity, it requires them to be proactive. A game located in a fictional world for instance offers the opportunity to simulate situations without risking the mistake and may highlight some people that stands out and make you identify your future team leaders.
- It values and ensures well-being and employee fullfilment. A team building activity is an opportunity for the organization to thank its employees, to offer them a moment to relax. A moment where any one can experiment new things and maybe learn more about himself or herself and the others. Self-understanding and learning how to understand others will help employees to better handle their stress, and consequently to better work as a team.
- It helps to share the corporate values – the selection of an activity rather than another can say long about the company which organizes it. A competitive and dynamic game to communicate the performance ambitions of a young company. An activity around ecology or parity to convey the CSR missions of another … A perfect way to engage your employees around your corporate culture and to re-insufflate the sense of belonging on a long term basis.
The benefits for the organization
Fulfilled employees are the happiest ones, they know each other better, they communicate better. Motivated, united and efficient teams correspond to key elements for an organization: less absenteeism, more engagement, better talent retention and less turnover.

Why a gamified & digital team building?
Team building modernization
At the digital era, building ties with one’s team can no longer happen naturally at work around a coffer, at lunch or during an afterwork. Remote work has entered our professional life to stay (Even if the hybrid format mixing on-site and remote work seems to be the choice of most companies and employees the reality is truly the reflect of teams who are not together every day).
Beyond this notion of remote work some departments are by nature located in different places across worldwide. Sales forces in the field for instance always work in a mobile and often lonely manner.
At distance or remotely, team cohesion should not disappear yet.
Actually, “even if employees seem ready for remote working, it is time to be creative. Companies can enlarge their perspectives and imagine innovative and new tools for their employees to make them stay engaged with their colleagues like immersive virtual experiences which incorporate the notion of challenge and competition” analyzes Virgile Loisance, our CEO.
For these teams, but also for those who still work on site the team building modernizes and digitalizes. And what’s better than escaping routine thanks to gamification? 73% of the employees surveyed by Emeraude wish virtual team building events every month and 91% at least every quarter.
Emeraude ensures you to offer fun, unique and engaging team building experiences. A team building may indeed adopt the format of an interactive and virtual quiz or even an in-presence, digital or hybrid escape room to combine collective experience and innovation.
