Why a team away day is a good idea
You have to hand it to your team. They work hard and have helped make the company what it is today. A team away day is a great opportunity for the team to bond but also a good chance for you to show your appreciation and treat them to something fun and different.
In our experience team away days often lead to new creative ideas. We believe this is because it takes people out of their normal working environment and allows them to have a more relaxed conversation. The beauty of a team away day is that it can be anything you want it to be, from a couple of drinks at the pub to a full day of activities.
Tip! Try deciding beforehand what your goals are for the day and it’ll be easier to know if it’s been a success or not. But don’t take it too seriously, the goal might just be to have a good time with your team!
Planning the perfect team away day
It's not easy to plan the perfect team away day, but it's not as difficult as you might think. Start by picking the theme, the venue, and setting your itinerary, then just work from there.
1. Pick a theme: First things first: you need to pick a theme. Are your employees into games? Do they appreciate a good film? Maybe they enjoy some good old-fashioned sports days? Whatever it is, make sure you have plenty of time to prepare.
2. Pick your venue: Once you have your theme in place, it's time to pick the venue for your team away day. It doesn't have to be too over the top – it could be somewhere as simple as a park or bowling alley – but it does need to be somewhere that has enough room for your entire team. Make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to find the perfect spot for your team away day – if you're working with a big group, it might take some time to find just the right fit.
3. Set out an itinerary: You don't want anyone getting lost along the way, so set out an itinerary for your team away day before you begin planning anything else. Make sure that everyone knows where they need to go at all times and make sure you think about what activities the team will appreciate.
