“Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work – Vince Lombardi.” (Brainyquotes, 2018). Team members play an important part in an employee’s role. Activities should be inclusive of all team members. Collaboration and mutually shared goals create a sense of unity and benefit all the team by leading to a more productive department. Teamwork creates a synergy, where the combined efforts of the team creates a stronger effect or result than those of individual team members working alone (Kahn, 1990, pp. 692-724). Every employee brings their own expertise and skills to a team and all employees should be encouraged to contribute and acknowledged for their contributions (Biro, 2017).
