Top 5 Tips for Planning a Company Team Building Event
From increased engagement to improving communication skills, team building events benefit companies & their employees in a myriad of ways. But how do you plan an event successfully? Read our top 5 tips to knock your event out of the park!
1. Go offsite
Reduce everyday office distractions (emails, voicemails, etc.) by hosting team building events outside of the office. A new environment will foster creativity and collaboration. Plus, it won't feel like a day at the office.
2. Schedule during work hours
Team building is an investment and no one wants to put in extra time after work or over the weekend to attend a mandatory work event, no matter how much they love their job. An event during the week will boost attendance--just make sure the vacation calendar isn't full!
3. Find a fun theme
Incorporating activities like scavenger hunts or water sports will not only keep your employees engaged, it will also build valuable work skills in the process. Win, win!
4. Make it accessible for everyone
5. Set goals
Communicate the goals of the team building event so employees have a clear understanding and can contribute to reaching the goal.
Everyone, *hands in* Go Team!
