Everything You Need to Know Before The Big Day
Team building is going through something of a renaissance, so why not throw an indoor event for you and your staff?
Do you want to get the most out of your team in the coming months? Then why not arrange a team building event? Due to the unpredictable British weather, it’s a good idea to hold your event indoors. To help you out, here’s what you need to remember when organising yours.
Think outside the box
The first thing you should do when planning your event is to forget all of the rules! Thinking outside the box is what is going to transform your event from something that’s just an excuse to get out of the office to something that is genuinely going to benefit your workforce. So forget a dull conference – things like murder mystery evenings, obstacle courses and baking competitions are there to be enjoyed instead.
Call in the experts
If you want to leave all of the details to someone else, it can be a good idea to get in touch with an expert team of event planners. Zing Events have been revolutionising team building events in recent years, and their indoor team building activities are some of the most popular in London! With innovative ideas and a friendly team with lots of experience, they will be able to listen to what you want and then go on to organise a great event for you and your team to enjoy.
Invite the whole team
It’s important to invite everyone along when you throw a team building event. You may think that there isn’t much point in people from different departments and disciplines taking part in team building together, but this will really pay off when you are all back in the office. People with different roles will appreciate each other, and will act with much more consideration towards people they may not have ever had the chance to meet before.
Focus on the venue
You could have the greatest idea for an indoor team building event, but it’s going to fall pretty flat on the day if you haven’t secured a great venue. You’ll want to choose somewhere that is the right size for your party, is easy to get to and if possible, be a little unique. Zing Events have a wide range of great indoor venues for you to choose from if you plan your event with them. Oh, and don’t forget to lay on some transport!
Don’t forget the food
It’s vital to keep your team fed and watered throughout your event, especially if it’s going to go on for a longer length of time. Things like personalised cupcakes are a great idea, as they can be tied in with your company’s logo or colour scheme. Be sure to have a few meat-free options, so that everyone will be able to eat – and be sure to have both hot and cold drinks available. Oh, and remember to ask if any of your team members have any allergies.
Invest in your team’s happiness
A team building event is something that will benefit your staff in both the long and short term. If you really want to show your team how much you care about them this year, why not treat them to an office makeover and regular staff outings? You’ll be sure to be the most popular boss in town!
