From small businesses to large corporations, every company can benefit from a team building event. It may seem silly to take time out of the week to goof around, but these games and activities do much more than just provide an opportunity to relax during the workday. They also give employees the opportunity to get to know each other better in an out-of-office setting, allowing them to form stronger relationships that can positively impact the work environment as a whole.
You can host a team building event any time of the year, but we at Total Entertainment see the summer season as one of the best times to do so. According to Business Insider, summer is a time when workplace productivity can drop up to 20 percent, making it important to boost morale and communication around the office.
The long, busy days of summer may have your employees gazing out the windows daydreaming, but a day of team-building can do wonders in getting everyone back on task. The opportunity to get out and enjoy the summer sun will be greatly appreciated by your team and can help them to re-focus their efforts toward a successful season of teamwork.
Your employees may not be sure that team building fun is for them, but everyone is much more likely to participate when the activity takes them outside into the summer heat.
The carefree, positive attitude that comes along with the summer sun will also put employees in the mood to mingle, ensuring that your team building activity will be more successful in forming and strengthening bonds.
Much of this connection depends on the type of activity you choose, so be sure to pick something that everyone can have fun doing. Casino parties and karaoke nights are two of our favorite options to try!
