Role of Teamwork

Many firms adopt a teamwork approach to complete tasks more efficiently. For example a major Caribbean airline encourages its workers to work as a team to achieve the main task of having each flight leave on time. Workers therefore move to various positions if needed, to have each flight leave on time.

Benefits of Teamwork

1. It improves the working relationship among workers

2. It increases communication

3. Skills and knowledge are passed on through the interaction

4. It satisfies the social needs of workers

Groups are formed naturally by persons with similar interest, common goals and similar past experiences in an organization. The establishment of various clubs, work socials and outings will encourage greater interaction among workers, better relationships and a teamwork approach to completing tasks.
