Why Building Workplace Comradery is Important


Teamwork blog

Fostering workplace comradery refers to a building a strong bond between coworkers. It is just as important to foster a respectful and dedicated team as it is to develop client relationships.

Sharing a strong bond between employees enables them to deliver their best work. According to a study from 15Five, 85% of employees are unsatisfied with the quality of communication in their workplace. According to findings from over 1,000 employees across the U.S., 81% prefer a company that values “open communication” than one that offers perks. Being honest and open with each other will produce lasting results well into the future.

Your Time Means Something

Humans spend around a third of their life at work and if you are spending that much time alone or blocked off from your coworkers, morale, and productivity are going to be hampered. People should want to come to work, they should be working alongside friends, they are people that you should be able to trust and respect. It is essential to have trust and fellowship at work if we want to get honest feedback.

Collaboration Leads to Success

Collaboration is the key to positive results. If you cannot openly collaborate with your coworkers, you cannot drive better results. Collaboration is like a well-oiled vehicle, you’ve got to continue to keep that vehicle oil or it will start misbehaving and eventually fail. Keep those lines of communication and collaboration open and your team will be able to handle any bumps you encounter along the path to success.

Having an open, honest discussion is essential to developing well-rounded ideas. Brainstorming together helps reach better conclusions and better strategies. Weekly meetings and discussions will promote open communication along with healthy interaction between those people that don’t always work together. Teamwork is the key to accomplishing goals and completing projects efficiently.

Workplace comradery leads to a better, healthier, growing business. The people around you are the people that are going to make sure you’re successful because you want them to be successful. Having that base level bond among coworkers is crucial.
