Building a Successful Team

One of the goals of human resources is helping build out successful teams. In a team, backgrounds, personalities, and cultures come together as we work towards a common goal. It cannot be expected that everyone will have the same opinions or experiences, and that is what is great about being part of a team.

There are a few things that should be considered while building a successful team:

• Vision- What is your company trying to accomplish? How can each person’s background contribute to the vision?
• Company culture- Does your culture encourage collaboration and support your vision while incorporating teamwork? Do you have activities like after work events, company luncheons and town halls to encourage teamwork?

• Focus on roles within the organization- How does each person’s daily activities come together to support the company goals? How can team members help support each other?
• Importance of communication- Do employees feel that they can share ideas? Are there tools your organization uses to help interoffice communication?

Taking these aspects into consideration, it becomes much easier to build a successful team.
