We have much gratitude to the England Rugby Union team for showcasing, on BBC News, the advantages of teambuilding activities in a positive light!
The team were put through a series of blinfold 4×4 activities to highlight communication and trust within the team. It was stressed that it was important to have these types of activities due to the high pressure nature of 6 Nations Rugby. However, in the work environment, we are faced with this constant pressure all through the year. It is particularly intense for companies who are coming to their financial year end and are taking the last push to achieve their annual budgets. This is why we strongly believe in teambuilding for everyone. It should not be seen as just a jolly day out, but an opportunity for reward or a platform to achieve greater teamwork through improved communication and understanding.
Should England beat France in their next game and go on to win the Grand Slam, the proof of the contribution of teambuilding will be there for all to see!
