Team building tips from the Mouse House

Team building is an essential aspect of any organization’s success, aiding in improving communication, increasing productivity, and fostering a sense of camaraderie. But it is often an event that is met with lack-lustre levels of enthusiasm. That can all change though if you move these activities out of the office, as suggested by Granny Mouse’s General Manager, Sean Granger.

“We see a marked difference in the involvement of staff when they attend team budlings at Granny Mouse, and we truly believe that this is due to them being away from their normal environment,” comments Granger, who goes on to give his suggestions as to why you should host such an event away from the work place:

  1. Conducting team building activities outside the office breaks the monotony of the daily routine. Employees often spend long hours at their desks, and being in the same space every day can become mundane. Taking team building activities outside the office can offer a refreshing change of scenery that will help to increase employee engagement and creativity.
  1. External events can help to create a level playing field. Employees often have established roles and hierarchies within the office, which often hinders collaboration and communication. However, when employees are taken out of the office and placed in a new environment, those established roles are left behind. This can create more equality, fostering better collaboration and communication.
  1. Going away together as a team helps to build trust among team members, and this often starts from the moment the journey to the venue begins. Placed in a new environment, they are forced to rely on each other in new and unfamiliar situations. This can help to build trust among team members, as they learn to rely on each other’s strengths and expertise.
  1. Hosting team building activities outside the office can help to foster a sense of camaraderie among team members. When employees spend time together outside of work, they can develop personal relationships that can carry over into the workplace. This can help to create a more positive work environment where employees feel valued and supported.

While team building activities can be conducted in the office, it’s clear to see that taking them outside the office environment can have several advantages. The team at Granny Mouse Country House & Spa have a number of options for you that will ultimately contribute to the success of your organization, and ensure that your team have a great time.
