Team work

Identify and explain three benefits of working as a team when undertaking any activity

We think the answer could include any of the following:

  1. Work is shared, individual workload is lessened/job gets done quicker/better quality work/more ideas come forward.
  2. You have people with different skills which make the project more successful/easier to solve problems/better decisions made.
  3. You can learn from other team members, new skills.
  4. Creates sense of bonding, workers happier.
  5. You have greater appreciation of what is involved in job areas other than your own. 
  6. Different opinions and ideas are encouraged.
  7. Responsibility is shared; no one is under too much pressure/better decisions.
  8. Communication and interpersonal skills are improved.
