In ancient times we worked as part of a tribe to contribute to the livelihood and survival of the community. Our modern day lives are no different. According to Gettysburg College, one third of our lives is spent at work. The average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime. Our workplaces are our modern day tribes, our communities. We need to find meaning and real connection in order to keep engaged and, ultimately, productive.

Victor Frankl, Austrian neurologist & holocaust survivor, wrote:

“Man is originally characterized by his ‘search for meaning’ rather than his ‘search for himself’. The more he forgets himself—giving himself to a cause or another person—the more human he is. And the more he is immersed and absorbed in something or someone other than himself the more he really becomes himself.”

So it is that work can be a true salvation for us—a place where we can find connection and meaning larger than just our individual existence. And possibly through this endeavor, we can become the best version of ourselves and build successful businesses as well.

 It is becoming important nowadays to really investigate and understand how corporate team building industry statistics affects both the psychological and the fiscal well-being of a corporation.

Did you know that:

  • Highly engaged teams show 21% greater profitability (Gallup)
  • Teams who score in the top 20% in engagement realize a 41% reduction in absenteeism and 59% less turnover (Gallup)
  • Disengaged employees cost U.S. companies up to $550 billion a year (The Engagement Institute)
  • 39% of surveyed employees believe that people in their own organization don’t collaborate enough (Gallup)
  • About 75% of employers rate teamwork and collaboration as “very important” (Gallup)

So how can we keep employers engaged, happy and connected?

We need to invest in experiences that build connection and encourage a feeling of collective motivation: Everyone moving together towards a common goal that is more than the sum of its parts.
