Office Life and More
At Baker Tilly, collaboration, socialization and interaction between employees is important in the business world. And there's one thing that every company can use to allow their staff a sense of belonging in the work place: The Social Club (see pictures below).
There’s a pretty clear link between the personal bonds between your team members and their engagement level.
A recent Gallup study found that close work friendships boost employee satisfaction by 50%, while people with a self-described best friend at work are seven times more likely to be fully engaged at work.
Another Gallup study reported that engaged companies consistently outperform the competition when it comes to things like profits, productivity, and turnover. (Pretty important stuff if you ask us.)
