Turn your team building event into a truly unique opportunity of which your employees will talk for a long time to come, while including some aspects of business training and teamwork.
Your team building outing: a unique opportunity?
All company parties are different, so there really isn’t a ‘good ‘ or ‘bad’ approach. A lot depends on the attitude of your employees, but you can do everything to ensure that your team building event goes as smoothly as possible.
If most of the participating employees are happy, that’s quite a good result. So start looking for activities that the largest percentage of your employees might like. Sometimes it’s a good idea to perform a small internal survey to sound what employees expect from the event? Or do you prefer for it to be a surprise? Of course there are many activities you can use for a fun outing with the staff.
What your employees would like
If you have a good feel for what your employees like, you’re up for an adventurous and succesful event. Karting or laser games often do well. Add a dinner at and you're quite allright. Is your staff rather sports minded? Then maybe they wouldn’t object to windsurfing, quad driving, climbing or abseiling. It just depends on how you look at it, it is often completely up to your staff.
The size of the group could be an issue when it comes to organizing a company outing. Not everything can be organized if you're a group of 30 people or more, although with a dinner reception you can hardly ever go wrong. Do something crazy and tune your team building event to your staff’s ‘likes’, then it is generally all right.
