Team Socials and Office Parties: What are UK businesses doing?

Employee engagement and workplace wellbeing has never been more in focus within the corporate world than it is now. Companies are now investing heavily in practices and policies that can help strengthen collaboration, build rapport between employees, encourage communication and mitigate conflict. 

A simple yet effective tool at their disposal is creating casual social environments for employees to interact, away from their desks and without the pressure of “shop-talk”. 

We wanted to understand more about team socials across businesses and the effects they can have on employees, so we ran a survey on over 200 UK workers.

Overall findings suggest that team socials help people build better peer relationships with their colleagues, and help boost team morale too.
