Why it is important to use an outside team-building company in prefence to using your own HR dept?

If you’re in HR, you’re known to be in HR; that’s what you do for the business. So obviously you have certain criteria for success. You pick people for jobs, you move them around jobs, you pick promotions and pay-rises and so on, so if that HR person is then running a team-building exercise, you often find that the participants are wondering what actually is going on. Is there a hidden agenda? Am I being assessed for a job I have, assessed for a job I may get, etc? Is there a hidden agenda that I don’t know about?

It may not even be obvious to people but they’ll get that feeling.

If you bring in somebody completely from outside, the slate is clean so that an outside facilitator can ask questions – even the dumbest, most obvious questions – but they come clean and it’s amazing what people will tell them and what people will share.

There’s also inevitably no hidden agenda,people don’t know them, they don’t know how to react; it’s a different situation. There’s no history for example with an outside facilitator, whereas with an HR Director, an HR Manager, there is.

Maybe they get on well, maybe they don’t. So an event run by outside facilitators, certainly with the guidelines of the HR Managers, because they know about the company, and that’s vital, the external facilitator holding hands in a professional fashion, with the HR Manager, will get an excellent result, no question about that, but on the whole I don’t suggest internal people run sessions because if your mate or your colleague is running the team-building session, you’re likely to do what you’ve always done – you’ll act in the same way because you’re used to that person, you know how to respond to that person.

So you’ll do what you’ve always done and you’ll get what you’ve always got. If you want to get something different then you’ve got to do something different. You’ve heard it before, but it’s true.

So spend the money, invest in Team-Building and make the difference.

Not doing team-building can cost you a great deal of money.
