Teambuilding in the great outdoors!

Teambuilding in the great outdoors!

18 June 2018

Looking for a way to bring your team together? Thinking of having a change from the usual conference? Whether it’s a new team, or one that’s been together for years, taking time out of the work environment, and bringing the team together can help build staff morale. A happy team can make all the different to your workplace.

A fun day of activities gives individuals the chance to get to know each other, and find out their strengths, which may be in an area they’re not familiar with. It provides staff with a chance to think differently and be engaged in a range of new activities and skills. Team building can also bring out the competitive edge, and is an ideal way to develop team work, collaboration, and understanding.

Team building outdoors can provide the benefit of enjoying a range of activities in the fresh air, and with space available, there is never an issue if the teams get a bit rowdy!

The Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel provides the perfect backdrop for your outdoor team building events. Set in 26 acres, the grounds provide the ideal place for teams to get involved in obstacle courses, trust exercises, navigation, or even build a bike for charity.

What’s more, you can round off a day’s team building with catering outside; why not enjoy a barbecue or hog roast? Alternatively, maybe you’re looking for a Pimm’s reception on the lawn to reward the efforts of the team. Of course, you may rather relax inside with a meal in a private conference room before handing out awards for the day’s activities.

Easily accessible, just one hour from London, and located in the Kent countryside, the hotel has plenty of parking, and overnight accommodation available too. It’s the ideal place to hold your team building, no matter how small or large your team. Looking to motivate and invigorate your team? Look no further.

Whatever you may be looking for to bring your team together, teaming up with the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel will ensure you and your team have an enjoyable event.
