One day more companies and corporations will accept that team building events and celebrations do not interfere with work, but are necessary elements in its performance.
Most companies have the notion that team building events are somehow not “real business”. Most companies pay excessive attention to the technical and business side of the enterprise but very little attention to the people involved in running the business.
When people feel connected to their workplace and enjoy relationships with their co-workers they are more inclined to put in the extra effort.
We can throw people together into any group, give them a task and have them produce a result, but if we expect that result to be exceptional, then we must respect the effort that is put into the mission.
There is one guiding principle that must drive a company on how to design team building events and celebrations -whatever you do – do it first class. This sends a message to the employees that if they are expected to produce top quality work, then they could expect the same in return.
When designing a team building event involve your employees in the process. Ask them for their input on what they would like to do. What you had in mind might not necessarily be their idea of an entertaining but educational event. Your employees like to feel involved with what is being planned in their lives. You might have been planning an expensive, elaborate event, when in fact their ideas may save you time and money.
Another way to save time and money is by employing a team building events company. Most team building companies have tried and tested venues and activities; they will be given a preferential rate at the best venues available. Beach and Bush have a wide range of venues and activities available for you to choose from.
