Affect of Age Group on Teamwork and Workplace
According to the research conducted by Kutlák (2019), the preference for teamwork at the workplace is not affected by the age group. The study also identified that both generations Z and Y prefer to work in teams with people they know personally. The answered research question suggests that employers should not prioritize one generation over the other for efficient teamwork. However, personal relationships are implied to be more beneficial in working in teams.
Tripathy’s (2017) research found evidence of teamwork’s importance for organizations and employee benefits. As such, workers with the ability to furnish ideas, create, and develop projects in teams are higher in demand. The study also explores five stages of team-building in an organization that can be implemented for increased performance.
According to Copeland (2020), taking five-minute interventions during a workday improves the perception of teamwork and reduces rates of burnout and compassion fatigue rates. As such, any organization implementing teamwork at the workplace can enhance teams’ performance by encouraging employees to take five-minute interventions.
Sailer et al. (2021) has proven that the workplace layout of desk characteristics has an impact on teamwork and productivity. As such, using the results of this research, employers can improve the working experience and teamwork efficiency by reorganizing the workplace. For example, reducing the number of desks within each worker’s field of vision would positively affect their perception of the workplace environment.
Monroe et al. (2021) were able to evaluate the effectiveness of intentional self-care practices on burnouts at the workplace relating to job satisfaction and teamwork. By encouraging managers to promote self-care programs for employees, the risks or burnout intervening with teamwork’s success can be diminished.
