Think of the sporting teams that have dominated their respective disciplines. One factor defining their success stands out; the team spirit that binds the squads together. This translates almost equally in the working world, where hiring qualified employees is not enough to guarantee success. There is a need to bring in the right people who fit in with the company culture. The best way of fostering togetherness is through team-building events.
So, what direct implications might team-building events have on your team? And what kind of events should you bear in mind as 2022 draws to a close and 2023 beckons? Read on to find out!
Why these events are important
One of the first things team-building events create among colleagues is trust. The events are designed so that communication and trust are needed to truly make the most of their time together. That’s why so many of these affairs include games, competitions, quizzes and the like.
It’s an occasion to learn more about the team and what makes them tick while allowing them to let their hair down somewhat. It’s also important to know if there’s a common element that your team likes before planning any activity. You want them to be receptive to the idea, especially if attendance is mandatory. If you’ve hired the right people to fit your company culture, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem, though.
Ideal Winter Options
There are many ideas to consider, although current weather constraints might help you better file through the options. Here at MYeventplanner, we’re primed to cater to any scale of team-building activity, whether for ten employees or over 300; we’ve done it all! And no matter where your day is taking place, we’ll make sure to supply you and your team with the food and drink necessary to fuel your endeavours throughout!
Your activity can be as action-packed as you like. We offer laser tag and a day at the gun range for pistol firing, pottery, soap and the recently added leather-making in equal measure. If your team is more culinary and drinks inclined, our Farmer’s Lunch Experience is undoubtedly worth considering. We also help plan cooking sessions where the team will learn about and try their hand at some local traditional recipes, including the art of pastizzi making.
On the drinks side of the equation, we offer wine and beer-tasting sessions, a whiskey masterclass and even cocktail-making sessions. However, if these don’t appeal to you or your team, recipes that are always a crowd’s favourites are our themed quizzes and bingo sessions. They draw out competitive streaks in a good-natured way and are always great fun too.
Planning for Spring/Summer 2023
The events mentioned above are ideal for the colder and wetter winter months. However, consider some of them for next year’s spring/summer! There’s plenty more we can offer, too, including zorb football, boat parties, treasure hunts (including jeep treasure hunts), horse riding and outdoor adventure packages that include abseiling, ziplining and rock climbing.
There’s an endless list of possibilities, and it’s never too early to start planning a day out for you and the team. It’s a perfect opportunity to build and strengthen bonds as everyone gets to know each other better. Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any of the options mentioned here or if you’ve got something else in mind that you’d like to put together.
