Why is teamwork so important?

by Jonathan Moss | 23 April 2014

We all know that teamwork is the buzzword of choice for many in the workplace, but how often do you think about why such importance is placed on it? With the upcoming Bank Holidays in May around the corner, I considered the affect teamwork has during times of disruption in the office...

"Teamwork is important because it supports a more empowered way of working, promotes flexibility and responsiveness, promotes the sense of achievement and enables tasks to be accomplished at a faster pace."

Here at Sellick Partnership, there is a true sense of teamwork within the entire business, coming from the people who directly work with one another on a day to day basis and the support teams such as payroll and marketing.

As a prime example of this, whilst away on annual leave my colleagues shared my personal work load and made sure that everything was communicated and completed to the highest standard that is expected. With this in mind, the knock on effect is that you can actually switch off and relax during time away from the office, which is certainly needed as our industry is very pressurised, fast paced and demanding.

How to achieve a successful team culture

To have a successful team culture, there are a number of aspects that need to be in place and continually be developed:

  • Setting clear goals and a team vision
  • Communication
  • Organisation
  • Listening to others
  • Hiring the right type of people
  • Team building projects and exercises
  • Accountability.

At Sellick Partnership our values are Passionate, Respected and Engaging - and this transcends to create a great team working environment which provides the highest quality and standard in what we do. If you would like to know more about our culture or working for us, visit our careers microsite.
