There’s something that awakens inside all of us as we transition into Springtime. With the perfect breeze, rays of sun adding warmth to the air, it is the ideal time to plan company picnics or team building events. This is also a crucial time to build team morale and welcome any new hires before Summer, when many employees clock in and out on vacations and time with their families. When everyone starts gathering around the windows longing for some sweet spring air, plan one of these great team events to keep your business on track!
Many of us have been part of a team building even or company picnic, but making the most of it requires a little bit of planning. That’s where an event planner can help execute the perfect day so your budget isn’t exhausted on daydreaming. The first thing to ask yourself is: What do I want my team to get out of this event/picnic? What are my team’s strengths and weaknesses we can harness and build upon during the event? From here, we can pinpoint what direction to go in with your event so everyone attending leaves invigorate and inspired!
We love the idea of a challenging team building venue that offers programs for all skill levels. Extreme challenge in Charlotte, offers a wide variety of obstacles and outdoor fun that every member of the team will be able to participate in. What is great about venues like this is the versatility of their accommodations. Their staff is knowledgeable to make recommendations on courses or exercises that can bring a disconnected office employees to synced up team in just a day. Challenging your team to a physical team building activity can break down barriers that a conversation just cannot always achieve. The fresh air and endorphins help too!
Keep It Low Key
If you want your team to get connected on a less strenuous level, a company picnic can be the perfect way to unite an office. While dreaming of summertime, plan a day where they can get out and enjoy themselves stress-free! Company picnics are especially effective when the invitation is extended to family so cubicle mates can spend quality time on a more personal level. Seating, catering, and entertainment are important factors to an excellent picnic, so having an event planner to make sure you’re check off each item on your priority list while staying on budget is extra important. The goal here is to create an environment of tranquility, where your team can put the office aside for a day and feel appreciated for their hard work. This will refresh everyone’s outlook and offer more productivity when headed back to work!
With so many options for team building events or company outings that bring everyone together and increase productivity, it may be hard to pinpoint which one is right for you! We love planning events for companies of all sizes and would be happy to sit down and talk about some local venues or how to give your team a beautiful spring day picnic they deserve!
