Most companies have a process in producing their products or providing services. In order for products to be made appropriately and with quality, employees need to be trained on constructing the items properly or providing the service in a specific order so the outcome will be as expected, meeting the clients expectations.
This sounds easy enough, but the process does take training and teaching the employees to coordinate their work and doing so in an orderly pattern. Using the wrong pieces or placing items in the wrong order can produce poor products or service.
In addition, when the company is being requested to make a large number of items or products, more employees may be involved, and then if not trained to work efficiently together, problems will occur. All of this helps to explain the importance of “Team Building”. Though it may sound easy to do, when the number of products are increased substantially, OR if the order is asked to be done in a short time line, rushing may occur, and errors may happen.
The problem may not be with the employees hired, but with a lack of enough training. The better employees understand each other, the better they work together. Furthermore, some employees may see ways to improve the process. Allow your workforce to 1) receive Team Building Training, as well as 2) review the process for ways to improve the outcome. By working as a “team”, the successful outcome will be a fulfilling experiences for everyone.
Managers and Supervisors should also be included in this training. Even for those, who have done this job many years, can still learn of new, more efficient techniques, etc. Contrary to the old saying, “you CAN teach an old dog new tricks.” Employers should encourage mutual respect among their teams and offer encouragement about being open to new ideas, etc. We all learn something every day.
