As we say goodbye to the final weeks of winter and welcome the first glimpses of spring, you might be thinking of taking your team outside into the fresh air for some team building exercises. If you’ve been cooped up in an office or working from home, then planning an outdoor team building or corporate ‘away day’ is the perfect way to welcome in the new season and re-energise your team for the year ahead.
We’re based in the picturesque grounds of Slaley Hall and offer a range of outdoor activities for teams of all sizes and requirements. Whether you are looking for a structured team building day to help your team practise some crucial skills, or you are just looking to treat your team and let them blow off some steam, our team can plan the perfect day for your team!
Spending Time With Your Team In The Outdoors
In the post-covid world, you might find that your workspace looks a lot different than before the pandemic began. For instance, you might be in a hybrid workspace now with fewer desks and seeing fewer people depending on your work patterns between working in the office or working from home. Or you might find yourself working from home full time which means that you have less interaction with your colleagues in person. Although we have a wealth of technology and ways to communicate remotely, it’s no coincidence that employees tend to feel more isolated when they are working from home compared to working in an office. There is always that need for in-person human interaction that is vital for team bonding and keeping the company running smoothly.
Therefore, planning regular team building and corporate away days are the ideal solution to beat this isolating feeling. This allows employees to interact in person and away from their workspaces so they can engage with each other without the pressures of the work creating a barrier. This helps to create deeper bonds between colleagues that will carry on through their work and allow for a stronger dynamic within the team.
Also adding in some fresh air to the day will be a relief if they are cooped up in an office or working from home!
How To Plan An Outdoor Team Building Day In The North East
Depending on your team size, location and what you want to achieve from the day, you can choose a range of outdoor team building activities with All Out Adventures. We’re based in the ground of Slaley Halls on the outskirts of Newcastle, making it accessible for businesses based across the North East of England. We are also a short drive from the city centre of Newcastle, so your team can enjoy the city life after the team building day to keep the momentum going!
We also offer a range of packages that are tailored to different team building skills such as communication, leadership and critical thinking. Our exercises are tailored for your colleagues to work together and practise these crucial skills that they can take back to the workplace after the team building day to improve the team dynamic.
Each of our activities are based in the picturesque outdoors and can be experienced in all weathers, so you don’t need to worry about arranging it for a day where the weather might not be on your side.
