Teamwork is key to a company’s success. But what makes a team successful? The key to teamwork is communication. To get ahead, you need to be able to communicate clearly with your team, keep them up-to-date with what’s going on, and trust your teammates to do the same in return. Most teams today are digital, multicultural, and dynamic. But although they face new hurdles, their success still hinges on a core set of fundamentals for group collaboration.
That’s why it’s vital for Shinjiru to prioritise creating an environment that supports healthy relationships and makes everyone feel like they belong. Today, you’ll find out about our first team-building experience after 2 years!
KUALA LUMPUR, June 3 – Shinjiru’s Network & Service Delivery team organised a team-building session for the company to introduce new and old members face-to-face. This was after working remotely for over 2 years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The team-building exercise was an escape room challenge held at the Breakout in NU Sentral.
Before the game started, the teams were divided into six groups with members of each department. They are placed in different rooms with varying degrees of difficulty. Each room has a story that the teams must figure out to escape. What made it even more exciting is that each member got to choose their role and “superpower”.
To escape, the teams must work together to solve puzzles, but they must also compete against each other. The team that solves the most puzzles and breaks out of the room first will get to earn their place. The experience is designed to encourage participants how to communicate effectively and overcome the pressure to be successful. The most important goal is to get everyone to work together as a team.
Throughout the game, the team members were able to bond and learn from one another. After the game ended, many team members huddled among each other to discuss their challenges, funny moments, and how they overcame them. The team-building program was a fun and challenging way for the employees to get to know each other better. We know on a basic level that one of the keys to living and working in a happy, healthy way is the ability to collaborate with others. However, we often get sidetracked from what matters most: building power with others.
