Corporate team outings enhance networking, socializing and getting the team to know each other at a more personal level. This improves communication within the group, increases team bonding, morale and therefore productivity, often fostering innovation and creativity. Here are some fun options for your corporate team-outing
Let steam off with Paintballing
Paintball is a fun way to escape the everyday routine and stress and build the team spirit. It also brings out great camaraderie and bonding between groups. It is a good team outing option to consider when hectic schedules and time constraints, make it difficult to head out of the city for a long getaway. A thrilling activity that promotes team spirit, this game is best played in groups. Paint Ball is an activity that has fun, thrill, adventure and strategy all mixed in one with an added adrenaline rush. This game is sure to draw you closer and the result is a success both on and off the paintball field.
Golf is a great game that can be played in teams and is inclusive for golfers and non-golfers alike. Whether the event is for upper management or for the whole company, a golf event is definitely worth considering. Golf-based team-building exercises often work effectively. It provides positive reinforcement of teamwork and lets them build inter-personal relationships that can help on the job. Successful team-building exercises around golf can be designed, even for non-golfers. However, you may want to steer clear of the fancy country clubs or high-end golf clubs. Look for a cost-effective municipal golf course, a 9-hole course or even just a mashie pitch and putt course. Keep in mind you’ll have plenty of non-golfers in your group and ladies too so the easier the course the better. 99% of people have played putt-putt and enjoyed it so at least they have an idea of how to putt! Golf tournaments in companies are a team outing all employees look forward to.
