In any business, maintaining high morale within your members of staff is vitally important, and one effective way of achieving this is to organise regular team building events. A day out of the office can be a huge morale boost for staff as well as giving them the perfect opportunity to bond and get to know each other out of the office environment.
As experienced providers of coach hire to transport such large groups of people on corporate days out, we at Westbus thought we’d run through the top 5 team building days to give you an idea of the type of activities you could do as a business;
A Day at the Races
Whether members of your team have been before or not, it won’t take long for people to get into the spirit of things, placing the odd bet here and there, enjoying the alcoholic beverages on offer and cheering on their horse as it races towards the finish line. Acting as a great team bonding exercise, a day at the races also offers your employees the chance to win a bit of extra cash at the same time!
This is a great activity for a large number of people, however as their boss or manager, you should prepare yourself to be on the receiving end of a large number of paintballs as it offers the opportunity to get you back for all the tasks you have previously assigned to them that they didn’t want to do! Splitting up into teams can create a little healthy competition whereby working as a team will be vitally important.
For something where a little less exertion is required, book your team in for a day at the local spa where you can enjoy treatments such as massages and facials in addition to making the most of the facilities on offer. In stark contrast to a hectic working environment, a relaxation day encourages your employees to relax and chat to each other in a very calming atmosphere.
A Day at the Seaside
Everyone loves a trip to the seaside so book the coach, jump on board and head to the coast where you can all enjoy fish and chips on the seafront as well as a game of crazy golf and an afternoon in the arcade playing bingo or losing money on the 2p machines! This type of day out gets you well away from the office and will revitalise you all thanks to the brisk sea air.
Some golf clubs allow large parties to book the course for the whole day so whether you have team members that have never hit a ball before or those who play every weekend, there will be no need to worry about disrupting anyone not in your party. Spending a day out in the fresh air can do wonders and with prizes for the winners, and maybe worst players, in the clubhouse afterwards, the day out can extend well into the evening!
If you are considering a team building day at any time in the near future, consider one of the activities listed above and call on us here at Westbus to provide you with the coach travel for the day.
