awards (with monetary gifts) for the best performing/contributing team.

under different categories.


This will keep up the spirits of the team.

Team

Nominations for Special/Advanced Training


Nominating the team members for various

technical / non-technical trainings increases the overall performance of the team.


For e.g., our team had nominations for

advanced technical trainings which are yet to be released and hence making us more potential team.

Company

sponsorship

Company can sponsor various activities of the

team like lunches, sports, charity work etc. Rewards keep up the motivation levels of the team.
For eg., UHG had a SSS Mela day where we

had a tie up with Make a Wish foundation. Teams together was responsible for adopting a childs wish and fulfilling it. The company would sponsor partially for the gifts

All

the team building activities are responsible for team motivation. Motivation is a push factor for further developments and success as a team. When these kind of initiatives are taken by management they provide a sense of relief among the team apart from daily routine. These activities will rejuvenate energies and inspire for a better output in the team.
