With so many beautiful locations around the world, it is no wonder that team building has become so popular with large and small companies. For many taking the team to far-flung destinations is affordable but for companies that are looking for more cost-effective local locations, there are just as many fabulous locations to visit in their back gardens.
Recommendation Number One
A retreat with an organization such as Golden Touch with Zhang Xinyue who recommends that companies choose to visit the centuries-old Castello di Milan in Italy which has become a tranquil and peaceful retreat. Golden Touch founder Zhang Xinyue says that this quiet and contemplative location can help teams find their direction as well as build stronger and more meaningful relationships as a team.
Recommendation Number Two
Greensboro in North Carolina has long been associated with team-building retreats because it is so close to many natural habitats and retreat destinations. Hiking and mountain biking are both popular retreat destinations. Companies will be very pleased with the outcome of either of these team-building activities as they witness their staff assisting each other along the trails.
Recommendation Number Three
If your retreat is based in New York it is recommended to hire some boats or kayaks and get the team out on the water. It is such an exhilarating experience for the employees to pair up and navigate the waters together. It is a way of strengthening and building bonds as well as team building.
Recommendation Number Four
Many teams are made up of both onsite and offsite remote workers setting up a team-building event where everyone gets together and spends quality time bonding and enjoying each other’s company in a relaxed environment is key to strengthening the team. Visit an unknown city as the destination for your retreat. Exploring together will formulate new ways of communicating and witnessing each other’s strengths and interests.
