Planning a team building event in Gauteng: Advice from a top venue!

As a team building venue outside Fourways, we know that employees are any business’s most valuable assets – and we see the great results from these events daily!

They are a fantastic way to foster team spirit among your employees – and as the old adage goes; “Employees who play well together, work well together”. Not only do these great activities boost the morale of your team – they also leads to higher productivity.

In order to pull off a successful team building day, the following should be kept in mind:

  • Identify the objective: The objective of any team building day is to build trust and unity among your staff (an added bonus is getting to know your team better and spending the day away from the office). Employees need to work together as a team at work and one of your objectives should be for the employees to get a better idea of each other’s strengths, weaknesses and problem solving abilities.
  • Get help if you need it: The activities and exercises used in your team building event should be interesting and fun for the whole group. Working with professionals to plan the event will help you choose the best activities to cater for your group.
  • Reward team achievements: Everyone has a bit of a competitive streak in them. Nurturing this human characteristic with positive reinforcement and acknowledgement can build unity among employees while driving then to perform better!
  • Using actual work situations: In order to have a lasting effect on your team, align the techniques used in the activities with the mission and vision of the company.
  • It’s all about the venue: Choosing the right team building venue for your day is important as it will contribute to the success of the entire project. Find a venue that is able to cater to your specific needs
