Temperatures are rising, winter coats and umbrellas are collecting dust, and the office fans are working overtime. Wherever you are in the UK - England, Scotland, Ireland or Wales, we are sure you are all enjoying the summer weather. As well as ensuring your staff are cool and hydrated, it is important to remember that morale is likely to be lower thanks to warmer weather and being stuck in the office... Surely this is the perfect time for some team building?

We think so, too!

There is a multitude of benefits associated with successful team building, and plenty more for having a fun day out in the sun, too -so why not combine the two and reap the rewards sooner, rather than later?

TEAM BUILDING BENEFITS

There are a wealth of benefits to be garnered from undertaking a day of building and developing your team, but we're going to focus on the most important ones.

Firstly, it will improve your overall performance. Allow your team the opportunity to socialise and have lunch together on a regular basis. This, as well as working together professionally, will really make a difference to their performance collectively.

It allows for individual strengths and weaknesses to be highlighted. Strengths that might have not been appreciated before can now be utilised for the benefit of the business, and weaknesses can be worked on and improved; ultimately strengthening the team as a whole.

By breaking away from the monotonous everyday routine, creativity will skyrocket, and ideas will be bouncing around - all from taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture from a different perspective. This is how a team grows and develops.

Knowing each individual's strengths and weaknesses allows for the team to build more informed working relationships; safe in the knowledge that there is someone else available to help out when required.

Finally, it is a great way of building team spirit, morale and motivation towards common goals.

Benefits of Sunshine

It is a fact that humans react to sunlight exposure- and lack thereof; much like plants do when the sun is shining, the majority of people are more open and forthcoming, making team building activities much more amenable.

Additional benefits of a team building day, out of the office and in the sunshine, include:

  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Improved mental health
  • Improved brain function
  • Improved quality of sleep - and therefore more alert at work
  • Improved immune system

Combine the sun with a bespoke day based on your needs and your business will be feeling double the benefits in no time at all.
