Nine in ten managers believe team working is key to business success and can help boost employee morale according to a new report from Nestlé Professional®.

The report, ‘Make Work Work: Why team working is the key to business success’, offers an in-depth look at the importance of team as a contributor to workplace happiness and success, and includes practical advice from businesses on how to get the most from a team and how to adopt a positive work environment.

Key findings from the independent research with 2,000 managers and workers, conducted in collaboration with 3GEM, reveals 90 percent of managers consider feeling part of a team to be an important factor in employee happiness.

80 percent of managers also say it would benefit employee effectiveness if there were more opportunities for workers to spend time as a team. The report was commissioned to mark the launch of the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Majesto coffee machine – designed to bring people together, it offers over 40 different drinks to suit all preferences.

The research reveals eight in ten employees say a strong bond with colleagues is fundamental to happiness at work. The same number say taking coffee breaks with colleagues helps to strengthen office relationships. That sense of belonging is also a key factor to workplace productivity with six in ten office workers saying they work harder when they feel part of a team.

Positive work relationships also encourage staff retention with nearly two thirds of workers saying they would stay in a job longer because of their great colleagues and team.

The survey also found that:
● Flexible working is cited as the top factor by employees for making them happier at work and the key attribute manager’s believe employees are looking for from an employer of choice
● Half of office workers say getting away from their desk helps them to feel more creative in the workplace
● 40 percent of workers say a nice work environment and office layout would make them happier at work
● Half of office workers say taking a break helps them to refocus and recharge

Steve Norris, Sales Director and Workplace Channel Lead at Nestlé Professional® explained how the report will help businesses to recognise the importance of a happy team as a key element to business success:

“The research shows that a happy and cohesive team is a key factor to business success, particularly when it comes to productivity, staff retention and boosting employee morale.

“The survey also recognises the importance of taking a break to help strengthen office relationships and employee effectiveness. It’s with this in mind that we are launching the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Majesto coffee machine – designed to bring teams together it offers a variety of drinks for all preferences.”

90 percent of managers recognise the importance of catering to a diverse range of personalities in the workplace for business success. With over 40 different drinks to choose from, the Majesto offers a coffee to suit everyone and enables the whole team to connect over a personalised, quality and convenient coffee.

Building on the notion that the best work happens when we consider different opinions, Nestlé Professional® appreciates that workers also have different ideas as to what makes a great coffee. Bringing coffee shop-style favourites into the workplace – from frothy lattes to smooth americanos – there is a taste for everyone. As our research proves it has never been harder to get the team together, even if you’re a small business. Expertly crafted for the workplace, with the Majesto you’re one step closer to really making work work.
