Many researches have shown that team effectiveness is highly correlated with team’s motivation. If the team is highly motivated, the team would be more productive at work and achieve team effectiveness. However, if employees feel less emotionally connected to the company, it does not only affect their sense of belonging but also their work productivity. Here you are, 5 different ways to enhance team effectiveness and build an energetic team.
Always give clear goals, roles and responsibilities to your team, as it is critical for effective team performance. If you have clarified the goals and roles, the team would know what exactly they have to do in order to achieve the goal. However, if the role is unclear, the team might need extra time to find out what his/her roles and responsibilities are, this might end up wasting lots of time.
Besides, the objective of the task should also be told to the team in order to let them understand the importance and the value of the task and increase their commitment to it. There is a research showing that when 80% employees found their work aligns with the company’s value and mission, they would feel more engaged with the work.
For example, fintech companies rely a lot on product innovation, sales and digital marketing for company’s growth. In this case, if the product team understands innovative new ideas can maintain competitiveness in the market; digital marketing team understands the efforts in website optimisation can translate to effective lead generation; sales team understands their purpose in expanding customer base, each employee would be more motivated to work harder for the company. As they know their work can drive the company’s growth and most importantly they know the importance of their work.
Having strategic planning, such as setting priorities, dedicating tasks to the team, making sure the team is achieving the same goal as planned is very important to achieve team effectiveness. However, you also have to bear in mind one thing which is that the world is changing rapidly, agility and rapid execution are equally important these days compared to research planning that could span over multiple years.
There are times that planning may not be perfect, and it requires pivoting along the way. Embrace an agile culture to stay ahead of the game or your competitors might act faster than you and launch your idea when you are still at the planning stage. Bear in mind, sometimes “good enough” means “good to go”.
It is essential to provide your team with feedback after they complete each task. Your team would know the areas they have been doing well and the areas that needed to improve. It requires fine tuning overtime for your team to be on track of delivering your vision.A positive feedback can also help to motivate your team, and make them feel their work is appreciated and valued by the company.
Give specific feedback. Do not give feedback that is too vague and long overdue. Since a timely positive feedback can motivate the employees to do the task, constructive advice can better guide the team and save time from focusing on the wrong area.
Glassdoor’s Employment Confidence Survey shows that 4 in 5 employees put emphasis on “non-wage compensation” as one of the major consideration factors when it comes to job seeking. The research shows that it is increasingly important to provide good staff benefits to employees rather than just offering a decent pay, as it would make the employees feel valued by the company. Employees feeling valued would be more motivated and willing to work hard for the company. For example, having a decent group medical insurance package would make the employees think the company actually cares about their health and wellness.
Core group medical insurance usually includes in-patient coverage such as surgery charges, medicines provided during hospitalisation, semi-private and private hospital room expenses, inpatient diagnostic tests such as X-rays etc. Brand-new augmented health platform, blüüm, provides group medical insurance plans that include annual inpatient coverage of up to HK$ 750,000 with no confusing sub-limits.
