How to successfully plan your next team building event with Hand Picked Hotels.

Team building days are a great way to reward your employees and help foster solid working relationships. Events that are fun and motivational helps build essential skills like communication, planning and problem solving, and as one of the most important investments you will make as a company it is essential to ensure it is effective. 

First of all set an objective – what are you looking to accomplish with your team building day? Are you rewarding your employees for a project they successfully completed for example, or do you want them to learn how to work together better? You then need to ascertain a budget, a time that is convenient for your employees and at a location which is accessible to them if you are not providing transport.

It goes without saying that you should plan something interesting, enjoyable and competitive in order to bring people closer together but you should also take into account average ages, abilities of the group, interests and job roles. It is a good idea to provide lunch as well as snacks and beverages throughout the activity, and last but not least ask your employees to provide anonymous feedback at the end.
