Hamid Hussain Research Project Impact Of Teamwork on Employees Productivity & Organization ABSTRACTTeamwork is an important component of the effective functioning of anyorganisation. To value the importance of teamwork, we have to appreciatethe value of every individual. Many managers think that theyare good team players. When they get into action, they beginto “take charge” of the whole process and dictate their beliefs.They are deaf to other peoples inputs and suggestions.Sometimes, they may ask for ideas from the members andappear receptive. At the back of their minds, they have alreadydecided that their own ideas are supreme and all other ideasmust necessarily be inferior. Such managers are usually guiltyof casting blame on the team when things go wrong, andaccepting personal credit when things go right. A good team is not formedovernight. Putting a bunch of yourbest workers together and making them play some teambuildinggames at a corporate retreat will not get you an effective team.I conducted a research in English Biscuit Manufacturers (pvt) Ltd, IQRAUNIVERSITY, and in small business firms. This Research Elaborates about therelationship between the Teamwork and its impact on employees productivityor on the performance of the organization .The sample has been taken on theconvenience sampling method and the 20 respondents were selected and thenevaluated on the basis of the questionnaire given to them.

Team building and planning events and activitieshave the potential to bring the people you employ a strong sense of direction, workableplans and solutions, a powerful feeling of belonging with and on the team and clear,strategic customer-focused values.
