Getting Back To Work. Life after COVID-19
Let’s just say it, the COVID-19 struggle is real. For those of us who aren’t used to working remotely, cabin fever has officially set in. With that in mind, one of the top things to do as New York begins to re-open is to find unique and exciting ways to re-connect.
Social distancing can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness, so corporate outings and team bonding activities can be incredibly helpful to recover from the disconnect I think we are all experiencing.
At a time when employees need to re-connect more than ever, it’s the experiences they share that help them get through each day.
As a supervisor or boss, a corporate outing can help start boosting morale and camaraderie in your office or work place setting?
Planning a corporate outing now and letting your team members know about it will boost morale right off the bat. Team building can get a bad rap because it can conjure up all kinds of intimidating thoughts for your employees. Imagine telling your employees that team building for this summer isn’t going to be a facilitated meeting with lukewarm pizza for lunch but an outing to Adirondack Extreme! Adirondack Extreme is the largest aerial adventure course located in Bolton Landing in the beautiful Adirondacks. There are zip lines, swinging on ropes, climbing trees, and working through various obstacles to include wobbly bridges, hanging nets and much more.
One of the benefits of a team building event is leaving with a sense of cohesion.
When your employees are able to connect and bond together on a personal level, it can have a profoundly positive impact on your business. Summer company outings can be the catalyst for genuine team chemistry. People feel like they can just be themselves.
Everyone needs time off to relax. You are giving your employees a designated time to take their minds off of work and just enjoy themselves. They will go back to work feeling renewed and revitalized.
Happy employees are productive employees. Studies have shown that happiness in the workplace makes people 12% more productive.
You create an equal playing field. Day to day barriers are broken down and titles are put to the side. There is no supervisor and subordinates. Everyone is equal.
This can be one of the best investments you make for your people. You build trust, encourage communication and increase collaboration and cohesion. Interacting in an everyday work environment allows your team to bond to an extent but having your employees enjoying and challenging themselves to an awesome aerial adventure course will create lasting memories and bonding. Sometimes letting loose and having fun out in the sun is what everyone needs!
Having your employees spend the day at Adirondack Extreme will encourage thinking, problem solving and working together. You will see employees stepping up and leading the group. Trust will be built up between coworkers and supervisors. Working together and depending on each other will create better camaraderie and increased communication and respect amongst your employees. And most important, it’s just a ton of fun! Lots of laughs and that amazing feeling of accomplishment in completing the Adirondack Extreme course! Get your reservations in now!.
