Staff Engagement

Why use our staff engagement services? 

Managing a team can be extremely challenging, especially during a time where everyone is less connected. Staff engagement is a way of encouraging your employees to work as a team rather than as individuals. This is crucial in a time where workplace wellbeing is needing to be prioritised. Creating a good workplace environment is important for building relationships within your company and maintaining a good standard of health for your team.

How does team building work? 

The Beehive Model

We can look at bees as a great example of team building. Bees live in hives with clear social organisation. Each type of bee is adapted for its work. The workers change their duties as their age increases. They start by feeding the larvae; then they ventilate and cool the hive by fanning it with their wings; then they clean the hive and finally they leave on food-collecting expeditions. Bees of different ages carry out all these varied tasks at any one time.

The workers collect food for everyone in the hive. Worker bees out collecting food, pass on messages to tell other bees where to find food. The beehive has a structure that is clear and understood by all its members. The bees live together. The bees live close together and work together well.

Teams are made up of individuals, and it is their different values, skills and experiences that help the team to work well. Effective teams need a mix of people able to work together. There is a clear division of labour in the hive, but no bee is forced to work – they do it willingly. The workers ensure that the hive has all the practical resources it needs to perform well.
