Team building events are used to your team together, encouraging them to develop actionable skills through the use of games and activities. These events help managers to identify individual strengths within the team that can be put to good use with various tasks. 
  • Does team building work for remote teams?
    As more and more companies gradually switch to working remotely, team building has become an increasingly hot topic. Developing a strong company culture and facilitating effective communication channels is a challenge for remote companies, but it can be easily solved with a well-planned virtual retreat.
  • Where should I host my team-building retreat?
    Deciding on the right location to host your company retreat depends on several factors. You’ll want to consider things like your budget, the logistics of travelling with a group, the type of location you require, what sort of activities you want to do, and your current team’s work schedule.
  • When should I plan my offsite team-building retreat?
    Deciding when to organise your team-building retreat is not easy, but it’s a very important decision. Typically, Spring and Autumn are the most popular times of the year. Winter can also work, as team members are often fresh and relaxed after the Christmas period. Summer is challenging because prices are much higher, and employees might already have holidays booked.
