Why Schedule a Team Building Event in Los Angeles?

Hosting a team building event isn't just about escaping the office (though, if that is what you want, there are quite a few team events that are perfect for accomplishing that goal). Building a strong community is an important part of having a healthy and productive work space and doing things together outside of the office is how friendships are made. If people genuinely know and enjoy their coworkers, it will make the daily grind of work feel less like a grind and, in turn, improve productivity. A team building event is great for creating a space for your team members to get to know one another in a natural and organic way. It is also a good way to get more participants from your employees. Your team members aren’t going to collectively decide that they want to take a sushi making course together, but plan it for them and they are sure to attend.

Plus, team building events can be good ways to help your team members develop soft skills that are applicable in the workplace. An improv class is going to be a fun evening, but it can also help team members become more confident in sharing their ideas and communicating. An escape room can produce a memorable evening and it can help participants develop lateral and critical thinking skills. Even a cooking class can help participants learn how to follow directions and interpret complex instructions, thinking a few steps ahead.

Choosing the Team Building Event for Your Group

Getting the most out of your team-building experience requires you to have a plan from the beginning, since you can’t sign up for any old event and call it a day. If you want to reward your team for a job well-done, you might host a wine and cheese tasting, while an event focused on breaking the ice among a newly formed team might be better suited as a game night or group workshop. You’ll also want to think about your team’s interests and preferences, since these events aren’t going to be successful if your team members don’t buy in (and a boring team building event will turn them off of future events). This might mean choosing somethingwith broad appeal (mixology workshops, tasting events and cooking classes are great for just about any group) and choosing a more narrow event based on the niche interests of your team (particularly if they are a small like-minded group).  You’ll also need to take into account logistics and issues like travel. Some activities, like escape rooms can only host a finite number of participants at once, while an outdoor painting class can host more participants (while possibly requiring more travel.
