Every workplace is different however, they all share a need for progress and innovation in order to be successful. Providing opportunities for staff professional development contributes greatly to improved performance, but what about enhancing the overall environment, employee interactions and morale? This is where corporate first aid training can come in, offering a myriad of benefits to all employees.
Building positive working relationships
Team building activities and social events provide an opportunity for staff to get to know each other in a less formal setting, to find common ground and build a positive working relationship with colleagues.
Sporting activities, lunches and formal events are popular for social interaction and providing the opportunity for these connections to begin and grow. Shared experiences, however, can allow employees to create an even stronger foundation. Attempting a challenge for the first time or putting themselves out of their comfort zone is when this can all take place.
Improving communication and problem-solving
Particularly when facing challenges or learning new things, co-workers develop greater communication skills, problem-solving, trust and respect for one another. This not only benefits their work-style and interactions, but it can also support them in personal endeavours or hurdles they may face.
We all think differently and communicate in different ways in the office, for example exchanging feedback with fellow staff members. Establishing what these are for ourselves and understanding our colleague’s preferences can be invaluable for a range of scenarios they can find themselves in.
Learning a new skill
Physical challenges and creative workshops are sure to be crowd favourites for an enjoyable activity in which a corporate team can bond and work on those communication skills. But, what better skill to set staff the challenge of obtaining together, than a First Aid qualification.
A nationally recognised qualification that instils life saving knowledge and abilities in staff that not only benefits them and the office, but also their loved ones. Emergency situations certainly don’t discriminate against the time of day, nor the setting they take place in. Being equipped with practical knowledge and understanding in dire situations is really the best precaution – and a lifelong skill.
