(OSHKOSH, Wis.)—According to a nationwide survey conducted by promotional products retailer 4imprint, a staggering 92 percent* of employees work in teams some or all of the time, while 45 percent of organizations provide tools and technology to support teamwork. How teams are supported and trained is the subject of 4imprint’s new eBook, The State of Team-building 2018.
4imprint’s 2018 nationwide survey of human resources and training professionals looks at who is trained on teamwork, what types of training take place and how organizations across a variety of industries use training and promotional products to encourage and improve teamwork in their organizations.
Among the findings:
- Forty-eight percent of team-building activities take place on-site.
- Forty-five percent of organizations are providing tools and technology for teamwork.
- Fifty-four percent* of companies provide communication training to improve teamwork.
- Almost half of respondents use logoed apparel as a team-building giveaway.
“It’s clear that teamwork is a part of our everyday work lives – in organizations of every size and industry,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, CEO, 4imprint. “While teamwork is something nearly all of us share, the ways organizations train, support and use promotional products to build unity among teams varies greatly.”
Results found in this eBook are based on a survey of 309 respondents that was collected from May 7, 2018 to June 29, 2018. Survey respondents work in many different industries, including healthcare, education, small business and more.
