It’s not always easy to find the time to gather face-to-face with your team these days, but there are many benefits to in-person teamwork as an effective way to keep up team morale.
For a large majority of companies, every part of their workday has moved into working in a digital world. We do our work via email, project management platforms, phone, and Zoom calls. This has led to a large group of people working more than ever outside the office with a large part of this group working remotely more often than they work face-to-face.
The benefits of in-person teamwork are easy to overlook, but they’re crucial to maintaining productivity. In-person meetings allow you to get up and move around while brainstorming ideas, catching someone’s eye for a quick chat, or taking a break from your desk.
It can also help employees feel connected to the company and provide stronger representation.
In a recent study, over 60% of the participants said they work better when in person. They reported increased creativity and motivation, as well as a boost in productivity.
Time Warner Cable’s CEO, Rob Marcus, said that the company had seen a 20 percent increase in productivity since they introduced a company-wide policy of working from coworking spaces where they book conference rooms or dedicated spaces to bring their team together.
In addition to this, most coworking spaces and conference room rentals offer networking opportunities with people from different industries and this can be beneficial for companies looking to grow their client base.
Though most companies may not be able to offer their employees that option, it can be beneficial for them to attend regular events where they can meet new people and gain access to the expertise of others or collaborate in the same space.
It’s important to remember that humans are social creatures and there’s a huge benefit to working face-to-face which is why in-person teamwork is beneficial for both the company and the employees.
