Is Now The Right Time For A Team Away Day?

After a hugely challenging year for businesses across the country, you may be wondering whether now is the right time to be spending money on a teambuilding event. But, let us reassure you - there are so many great benefits to hosting corporate events, it’s definitely a worthwhile investment! Firstly, the clue is in the name, it’s all about your team and building the most cohesive, engaged and productive team as possible. Being apart for so long has no doubt had a detrimental impact on the team’s relationship, so giving management (and colleagues) the chance to get to know the personalities behind the business, rewarding success and simply enjoying social interaction, will give everyone a much-needed boost.

We have listed below the reasons your team may benefit from a team away day:

For the team that has worked incredibly hard…

Reward and recognition are vital to keeping your employees happy and motivated to remain dedicated, loyal and reliable.  Multi-activity days work well for reward session so your team can pick an activity or experiences that suits them. Perhaps a spa treatment, golf or horse riding.

For the team that needs to bond…

Many teams have been kept apart for months and let’s face it we are all tired of the zoom quiz.  Try problem-solving activities such as treasure hunts or a crime scene investigation challenge, these will help bring your team together and them leaving feeling stronger than ever and ready to work together better.

For the team that needs some training…

Training can be hard going so why not break the day up with some ice breaker challenges. Times for these activities vary but can be for as little as an hour. Getting up and moving about can increase your delegates energy and productivity.

For the team that deserves a bit of fun…

A little bit of fun goes a long way, it energises us, it motivates us and mostly it makes us happy. You may not think your employee’s happiness is your priority but it would be worth knowing that a recent study by the University of Oxford showed that happy workers are 13% more productive.

We partner with local teambuilding companies EMG, LYC and The Teambuilding Company who provide a range of teambuilding activities and experiences to suit any brief.
