understanding and leadership. The study found out that teamwork positively affects employee

employees, accomplishment of tasks and assignmentsand meeting set goals/objectives on time.

Team work was also noted to increase discipline at work and trust amongst employees; workers are

dependable at work, they show high profile and ethical behaviour at work and their personal

conduct and appearance increased. Results show that organisations can ensure that team work

enhances employee performance through: increasing employee involvement, delegating duties to all

employees, horizontal communication, increase in pay and incentives, awards at the end of the year

and training of employees in team building skills
