Get Ready For Spring With These 5 Team Building Events

Posted by Jake Mandel on Feb, 14, 2020

While for many cities across the US and Canada it may seem like we’re still in the midst of winter, in actual fact, spring is now just around the corner. There’s no better way for your organization to celebrate spring than to plan a team building event for your entire team.

In fact, your organization can realize a number of benefits by hosting a team building event.

Team building activities will improve employee productivity, increase motivation, encourage collaboration among your team, drive creativity, provide staff members with positive reinforcement, improve communications and much more.

Team building events significantly improve employee engagement, and research from Gallup has found that companies which perform better in employee engagement metrics realize substantially better customer engagement, higher productivity, better retention, fewer accidents, and, most importantly, 21 percent higher profitability.

Why choose spring for your corporate team building event?

Spring is the season of new beginnings. The season is associated with blooming flowers, the birth of new animals and the time in which the earth moves on from winter and seemingly comes alive again.

That’s why spring is a fantastic time to make changes that positively impact your business, and the best place to start is company culture. Here are just a few reasons why you should start planning a team building activity for spring 2020:

  • The weather is better, and your employees will be inspired to end their winter hibernation.
  • It’s a fantastic time to evaluate the goals you set at the start of the year, and whether you are still on track to achieve them.
  • Spring is about new life, making it the perfect time to implement new initiatives that help your employees grow and progress.
