Over the past 12 months, the world around us has changed dramatically. From how our children attended school, how we attended work, and how we found ways to have fun. As the world now begins to find it’s way back to in-person events, offices, classrooms, and more, we’re all left wondering how to navigate these uncharted waters.
It’s become uncharted waters because so many corporate businesses operated remotely and lost that cohesive in-office unit they previously had. Now workers are used to daily zoom calls and no further “office” interaction. As you move to bring your teams back together you have to consider so many different elements, as they impact everyone differently.
Fortunately for you and so many other corporate businesses in the NY, MA, and WI areas, we’ve become self-proclaimed experts in bringing teams together. While the official words are “corporate team building” we like to think of it as bringing people together and allowing them to rediscover that office magic from years past.
So now that you’ve decided to start planning some corporate outings for your team post-pandemic, we have a few tips and tricks to make it your best event yet.
Corporate Team Building Events (AKA Bringing Your Team Back Together) in 2021
We have three main tips that we recommend to any NY, WI or MA-based business that wants to bring back the corporate team-building element. If you’re a small business that doesn’t love the term corporate, don’t worry…we promise these tips will be perfect for your small and tight-knit teams as well.
Team Building Tip #1 – Location, Location, Location
We’ve all spent a TON of time locked away in our homes, home offices or wherever else you had the opportunity to lockdown. Start looking at outdoor experiences and locations that you and your teams can travel to. It can be something as simple as a park outing where you organize a team event, cater some good food and forget about the daily workload for a little while.
If you’re looking for something more focused on rekindling that office magic, we happen to know the perfect spot. In New York, Massachusetts and Wisconsin we’re home to the top aerial adventure parks in the area. With rope courses, ziplines, and team-building activities, it’s the ultimate outdoor experience.
Team Building Tip #2 – Safety Concerns
It’s possible that your employees will have some safety concerns post-pandemic. Whether those are related to cleanliness, capacity limits or the skill levels required for your event, it’s important to consider them all.
Here at Boundless Adventures, we are following all required safety and cleanliness protocols required by state and local authorities. We ensure that we keep your group together throughout your event and can work with you and your team to spread those groups out as needed. With nearly a dozen courses in each of our NY, MA, and WI parks we have the ability to meet your corporate team building needs.
We also have highly trained staff to guide each and every one of your employees throughout the trees as they zip, slide and climb their way through the adventure.
Team Building Tip #3 – The Experience You Want For Your Employees
When we talk about the employee experience we approach it from the view of someone who may work for you. Do you want them to view your event or day out as nothing more than a “hyped-up” pizza party, or do you truly want them to learn and grow with their co-workers?
We approach the experience this way because here at Boundless Adventures we specialize in bringing teams together. Our courses require your employees to work together to advance throughout the course, to trust each other as they leap and zipline and most importantly reinforce a culture of being one unit.
