Looking for an alternative to the awkward, over-indulgent holiday party? Holiday team building is your solution!
Your company may be planning a party to celebrate the end of a hardworking year – or kick start the beginning of a new one. People like to work with people they know so why not take this opportunity to enhance team cohesion and help your team connect in a relaxed atmosphere.
Research indicates that happiness increases with experiences, rather than things. It’s easy to see this correlation – think about that thing that you HAD to have – a car, a toy, whatever. Now think about some great experience – a trip to the Caribbean, a weekend in Las Vegas, tickets to see the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
Now take a moment to think about which of those things sticks in your mind, now that they’re long gone. Chances are, you value the experience and that memory far more than the small amount of time that you spent enjoying whatever the item was. You’re not alone!
This is a prime opportunity to create a lasting memory for your team, and provide them with an experience, not just another ho-hum holiday party that will be quickly forgotten once everybody is back to work after the holidays. Since the end of the year and the dizzying array of demands bring so much stress, it makes sense to get a triple bang for your buck this holiday season:
Build team camaraderie
Give back to your local community
Holiday team building activities are the perfect way to relieve stress and help your team work together more effectively. In a relaxed atmosphere filled with laughter, even your introverts will engage in this holiday party as your team works together to give back.
Holiday team building contributions make a difference in the lives of others – and yours!
