If there is one other event employees are excited about besides the annual Christmas party (and not to mention, Christmas bonus), it’s probably the company outing. This particular time of the year is when team building activities are planned to rekindle the spirit of collaboration and teamwork within colleagues. Here in the Philippines, beach destinations are a a popular venue for company outings and team buildings; and for good reason. To help you not go crazy trying to think of where to hold your company outing for the year 2017, here are the top 5 reasons beach venues are perfect for it:
- It provides a nice break from the daily office scene.
When you’re an office worker, the walls of the office can get a little bit dull and boring after quite some time. This is why it’s recommended to hold company outings in a place that’s very different from what you and your team usually sees. Beaches provide an immediate ambiance of fun and relaxation so your employees can get some well-deserved break and actually take their minds off of their work even for just a short while.
- There are many great beaches near Manila.
If proximity from the city office is what’s stopping you from holding your company outing at the beach, then worry no more. The great thing about being an archipelago is that our capital city is just a few minutes away from some of the country’s amazing beaches. Our place is a crowd favorite especially since our Eagle Point Beach and Diving Resort in Batangas is a mere 2-3 hour drive from Manila.
- Water activities are readily available.
Beach venues allow for water-related games and activities, and believe us when we tell you that those are fun and unforgettable! Whether it’s running around the sand or actually incorporating the salty seas on your team building activities, some wet and wild hurrah are enough to make your employees thankful for the company. Why go to the beach if you’re not willing to get a little wet, right?
- It enhances your employees’ planning skills.
Holding company events on beach venues may be fun but it’s definitely not for the light-hearted. It takes a lot of time and planning to actually making team building activities successful. Remember, you and your people are not there to just wander about on your own; you’re there to strengthen your bond as a team and rejuvenate as members of the company.
- The sand poses lesser risks and injuries.
Holding games on cement can pose greater risks and injuries for your team in case of accidents. At the beach, the sand offers more “cushion” thus lessening the probability of your people getting injured when they fall down or trip during team building activities. Of course, we still strongly advise you pack up a “For-company-use” first-aid kit- it’s better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
