Why measure Teamwork?

Organisations nowadays are faced with increasingly complex problems that individuals simply can’t tackle alone, and that’s where teamwork comes into play. When team members use their unique skills to shine in their own roles, it creates an environment based on mutual respect and cooperation that benefits the whole company in ways that go far beyond boosting the bottom line.

Research has shown that teamwork contributes to better problem-solving, as people’s ability to work together, as opposed to working alone, helps them generate and adopt correct responses, reject erroneous one, and process information more effectively.

Teams that value diversity and use it to their advantage have been proven to be more innovative, as interacting with individuals who are different forces people to be more open minded and find optimal solutions in unexpected or unconventional places. Not to mention, healthy teams tend to contribute to members’ health and well-being, reducing the risk of burnout and also helping them grow and develop.
