Newcastle City Triathlon and why entering teams in corporate challenges can increase productivity in the office
There are several corporate titles up for grabs in this year’s Triathlon (Business and Finance; Government Agencies; Emergency Services or Military; Health and Sport Services; Construction and Industry; Mining and Mining Services; and Food, Tourism and Hospitality) and several reasons why businesses should enter teams in order to improve workplace productivity. These include:
1- TEAM WORK/CAMARADERIE. Training together/hurting together can bring your employees closer. Training and competing as part of a team is also great for leadership, self-esteem, confidence and positive workplace communication.
2- HAPPIER EMPLOYEES. Exercise has been proven to improve mood, promote better sleep patterns and de-stress the mind, which can only be a good result for employers.
3- RESPECT. Earn new-found respect for your workmates and your boss by sharing blood, sweat and tears in training and on race day. This will translate in the office to a more harmonious workplace environment.
