Show Your Team Spirit! T-Shirts, Hats, and More for Your Team-Building Exercises
Motivation at work goes beyond sending out e-mails that encourage the staff to embrace paradigm shifts and promote thought leadership inside the office culture. Part of it is making sure that your team members actually like each other and consider themselves part of a team. Workshops and staff meetings are great--really, just ask your employees--but sometimes, encouragement that people can reach out and touch goes a long way. For times like those, turn to branded company items from Quality Logo Products®.
One way to get people to feel that they're all in this together, whatever "this" may be, is with customized apparel. And we don't mean uniforms or anything as stiff and boring as that. Customized t-shirts or hooded sweatshirts, even polo shirts if you still need to keep things a bit formal, can get your team cozy and ready to work. Baseball caps are a great team-building option, too. Not only are they great for office retreats, they work wonderfully for creating the team spirit in schools and summer camps.
In fact, if we're talking about motivational activities, there's something that's done in schools and at camps all the time that can work wonders for office dynamics: game-playing. It's not necessary to break out the poker chips or anything, as much fun as that might be, but even setting aside time for staff members to, say, solve a puzzle together can do wonders for the inspiration. You can do that with branded puzzles and games from QLP.
Another type of game that's simple and fun to play is catch. Flyers and flying discs are wonderful for this, especially if you hand out customized flyers at an event that's sure to promote togetherness like a company picnic. While you're at it, make the company picnic a truly excellent event with sunglasses and coolers stamped with the company logo.
Once all that team-building has paid off, and people have started really succeeding at work, it makes sense to reward the workers and the decision makers at the company with a token that says, "Good job!" Motivate your crew to keep striving for success with plaques, paperweights, and clocks, all of which can be customized with your message. Just don't break up the team!
You, too, can become a team integration guru and earn that ROI in people's marketable skill sets--or you can show some actual leadership by making your team feel united and valued. Go for the second option; choose substance! And come to Quality Logo Products® for all your substantial product needs.
