Does your team need a Spring Clean?

Wednesday 2 September, 2015


Spring is finally here! It was a long treacherous winter (on some days we actually hit lows of single digits!). Soon enough the botanical gardens in Brisbane will be in full bloom, and it won’t be long before Bondi will have more blossom trees than surf boards.


And whilst you’re spring cleaning your home why not spruce up your team by giving it a Spring clean too. 


We know that employee and team morale can be low following the brisk winter period but have no fear, we have a solution! A strong team requires strong internal communications. This means your team should be communicating readily and regularly for an effective, productive working atmosphere.


Team building activities outside of the office are one way of ‘upping the morale’. Think trivia night, a pizza making class or don your helmet and kneepads for go-karting, the list is endless!


Team building activities encourage staff to work together to achieve an ultimate goal. Side effects include improving co-operation in the team, long-term motivation, imagination and creativity, and learning new skills from fellow colleagues. Result: increased productivity!


Reaching a goal together away from the office ignites a drive to succeed together elsewhere, i.e. inside the office walls.


Put a spring back in your team’s step!


Here at OneShift we understand the importance of a solid internal culture for a more productive team. We embrace birthdays, monthly social outings and big team get-togethers in the boardroom as golden opportunities to spring clean team morale. This helps us to better focus on what we do best - We Change the Way People Choose to Work!
