Five reasons to hold a team building day

Why team building? It’s a question that we hear often – after all, taking‚ time‚ out of the office means less time doing day to day business – but we’ve rounded up a few of the great reasons why team building is‚ valuable.


1. Breaking down barriers

Bringing different teams together is a great way to break down barriers within the workplace, particularly if your business is large with multiple offices. Often, colleagues exchange emails and even talk on the phone without ever meeting so this kind of activity is a fantastic method of boosting communication and productivity.


2. Gaining strategic skills

Many team building activities require coworkers to work together on problem solving tasks. These tests of rational and strategic thinking can transfer back to the office – for example, if a crisis were to occur, the team can use their developed skills to work together and take charge of the situation.


3. Encouraging creativity and fun

More than anything, team building should be fun! There are few things better than bonding over laughter so fun activities such as tackling our KONG aerial ropes course‚ together can result in an incredibly productive day where the results continue when you’re back to the office.


4. Promoting teamwork

Teamwork helps to improve almost every aspect of working life so understanding each other’s strengths and weaknesses is crucial to work together effectively. Being able to communicate openly in a neutral setting is a fantastic way to allow your team to perform at their best.


5. Refreshing your colleagues‚ from the office environment

Time away from the computer screen can be incredibly valuable‚ and in particular, it has been shown that taking a break and getting outdoors can boost productivity. Set in 1,000 acres of Cheshire countryside, Carden Park is an excellent place to escape and bond with the team.



With team building activities from adrenaline filled KONG aerial ropes and quad biking to strategic challenges and duck hearding, Carden Park has all you need for a successful event.
