Here at Old Thorns we believe team building is the key to a company’s success and the most worthwhile investment you can make out of your event. Most of our teambuilding events are planned in conjunction with Firebird Events ltd, who help us offer the most comprehensive range of activities, incorporating classics and upcoming trends.
When employees get the opportunity to escape the office and get to know one another in an active and thought-provoking environment, then it promotes enthusiasm and creates a sense of comradery amongst workers.
Team building often involves working together to solve problems that they wouldn’t normally encounter. This helps people think about a situation from a different angle and can encourage employees to think outside the box, which can be key for a company.
Team building can mean colleagues get to know one another on a social level which can improve trust and collaboration. If your employees are able to communicate more effectivity, then this will increase efficiency and idea sharing within the office.
It is important for a company to create a warm and inviting company culture. This will help with not only retaining employees but hiring the best. Statistics show that 46% of job seekers cite company culture as very important when choosing to apply for a role. Team building is instrumental in building a positive environment within the workplace.
