Organise A Festive Team Building Experience

Stag do

Working during the winter months and festive period might seem like a fun time, but it can have a negative impact on your staff’s morale. Whether it’s the case of the winter blues, high demand during the Christmas shopping period or end-of-year burnout, it’s important to take care of your staff during this hectic time. So round up the troops, bundle up and get outside for a unique team building day! 

Throwing seasonal corporate events, or outings as a company, can create a fun work environment that will shine through and reflect on employees’ productivity and motivation. Whether you're part of a large organisation or a smaller business, corporate days can improve work relationships and communication that benefit the business overall. Team building days are also a chance for employees to blow off some steam, have fun with their peers as well as practising professional skills such as leadership and problem solving.

Why Are Team Building Days Important?

As we head into the final months of 2022, corporate away days are also the perfect way to end the year, reflect on the last 12 months, and show employees how valued they are as a team. Ensuring that you regularly show your employees appreciation can lead to higher retention, lower staff turnover and higher morale between employees and management. 75% of office workers say teamwork and collaboration are crucial to corporate success, with 33% believing that fostering a collaborative culture leads to increased loyalty within the company.

How Can Winter Affect Our Mood In The Workplace? 

The winter months can lead to low morale and burnout for your team if your business experiences high demand during the festive season. As employees spend the majority of their days inside at their workplace, they will certainly appreciate a little more outdoor time. It’s a well known fact that we are not exposed to much sunlight in the UK and, during the winter months, even daylight. The dark mornings and dark evenings draw in and you feel like you never see the sun!

During winter months, employees are less likely to spend time outdoors before, after or during work which can have a direct affect on mood. Therefore organising a team building or corporate ‘away day’ can be an effective way of boosting morale, productivity and helping employees to beat the winter blues. Even during the colder months, outdoor activities can be hugely beneficial to your staff by boosting their mood, getting some fresh air and engaging in some unique activities.

Gathering employees together, engaging in healthy competition and adrenaline inducing activities is ideal for any corporate away day and at AllOut Adventures, we offer a wide range of activities suitable for all groups of all abilities to create an unforgettable, festive experience for the whole group!
