The Weather One of the most obvious benefits is, of course, the weather. Now, this is a huge advantage as it opens so many doors for outdoor team building activities. The weather also tends to lift everyone's spirits meaning that motivation and attitudes are far more likely to shine through than they would with a team trapped in a lethargic circle. In addition, the weather is very inviting so the chances are if you ask your employees how many of them fancy a team building day spent in the sun, the majority will say yes. This creates the perfect opportunity to get them involved in something new and exciting which will help boost productivity, team morale and the overall attitude of the team. Moods Generally speaking, people's moods seem to lift during the summer. This means there's probably more chance that individuals will actually get involved with things, rather than standing on the side-lines. Also, it gives everyone a break from the office without requiring them to do something completely unproductive. In fact, team building helps to strengthen relationships within the team and improve communication as well as overall motivation. If your team is feeling a bit down in the dumps, we're sure a bit of time spent in the sunshine will do them a world of good. It's the easiest way to banish those common summer office blues and bring out the individual strengths and personalities within the team.
