Teamwork makes the dream work!
The definition of teamwork is the effective and efficient combined action of a group of people. "The History of Team building," says the idea of teams emerged in the late 1920s and early 1930s with the now-classic Hawthorne Studies. Researchers agreed that the most significant factor was building a sense of group identity, a feeling of social support, and cohesion that came with increased worker interaction. One of the original researchers, Elton Mayo, pointed out certain critical conditions: the manager had a personal interest in each team member's achievements, took pride in the team's record and continuously posted feedback and helped the team set their own work conditions. It was also noted that the group took pride in their work, and people noticed their achievements; the group did not feel pressured to change, and if any changes were made, the group was consulted beforehand. Combining all these factors helped the group develop a sense of confidence in their abilities and camaraderie. When a team works together, the work is more efficient, and the team is more productive. Sharing the workload allows the unit to be more efficient and productive because it relieves each member of the pressure of completing a multistep task alone on time.
