The ultimate backdrop for your events
Fun, engaging, and about as far-removed from the day to day grind as you can imagine – corporate team building events provide the ideal opportunity to bring your employees together in a setting that’s not the workplace.
Corporate team building events are becoming more and more popular, but why is this?
Are they just a fun method of rewarding staff for their hard work and contributions? Or, are they a way of ensuring your employees are able to work together as a team?
We think there’s definitely an element of both these factors. Effective corporate team building events can have real long term benefits across all levels of your organisation, so why not make your team feel appreciated and valued with fun filled outdoor activities?
What can a team building event do for your business?
A team building event will get the whole team out of the office. It will enable them to focus on something new together, something totally unrelated to their workload and most importantly it will help them to form deep friendships, get to know one another better, and increase morale.
An outdoor corporate event, in particular, is seen as a fantastic means of getting out to enjoy the fresh air, channel energy, let off steam and develop the social side of relationships. By working together interactively on fun problem solving activities, you’ll notice your team bonding better, communicating more effectively and learning and understanding more about each other. This should then translate into effective working relationships within the office and perhaps even greater productivity. i
Creativity is key
Team building events can often seem uninspiring, tired, a bit of a chore, and that’s because many organisations repeat the same activities year after year. Creativity is key, You need a outdoor corporate event which will motivate your employees, engage and inspire them to talk about the day as a memorable occasion.
To avoid falling into the trap of the same old, same old, think about how you can let your creativity flow. With a little imagination, creativity and flair, opportunities are endless.
Make use of the green spaces around your premises or spread out into a larger park
London in particular has vast open spaces and sporting facilities. Why not take advantage of the summer sun and hold themed sports days, inflatable team games, obstacle courses, treasure hunts or outdoor fun based workshops, circus skills, for example?
Encourage healthy competition and team work
Nothing builds team work better than introducing a competitive element. Encourage your team to problem solve by designing and building items against the clock, Hold a soap box derby or a murder mystery / escape day where teams have to use their initiative to solve clues?
Outdoor Themed Events
Favourite films, games, music, animals….think up your own topical theme. Themed events are popular and easily bring everyone together either competitively or for fun.
Have fun with water
Everyone loves a good splash, right? From kayaking or boating to rigging up rafts on lakes, leisure pursuits make great team bonding exercises.
