Why should you plan a team-building event?
Many progressive companies choose to arrange corporate retreats for their employees to help to enhance communication whilst building camaraderie amongst employees along with increasing productivity.
A typical corporate retreat should feature both activity and relaxation.
Activities should be scheduled to help team members interact and bond with each other, and develop new ideas while featuring a unifying corporate culture.
This will help employees to gain an understanding of their colleagues’ abilities and likings as they relax and recharge on a holiday.
Choose the right date for the trip
The first step in planning is to choose suitable dates to ensure employees are able to attend the trip.
It is important for you to decide on the length of the retreat; whether it is for two to seven days, although it could be longer.
Next, you could formulate three different sets of dates for the retreat and get the employees to vote for which date they prefer.
The one with the most votes wins.
Whenever you are deciding to travel overseas, you need to decide if you are having the retreat during the peak season or off-peak season to get better rates for the resort.
Plan enough activities
You should select a resort that offers interesting activities and excursions for your employees.
This can include a dolphin-watching cruise aboard a traditional Maldivian dhoni sailing vessel which is sure to be a memorable experience.
A wellness retreat with yoga can also be another good event to have.
Otherwise, you can plan to have your employees spend time in the sea whilst utilizing snorkelling and other water sports facilities provided by the villa.
A quality spa could be another feature to look out for when selecting a resort for your retreat.
Arrange the flights and transfers
Finally, you need to arrange flights along with airport transfers for all your employees.
You will be able to save some money when you book plane tickets in advance.
If you have employees arriving from another time zone, they should be given enough time to acclimatize themselves before the retreat formally commences.
The Maldives’ Velana International Airport near Male will be the airport everyone arrives at regardless of how they traveled.
You will find that a domestic flight, private seaplane ride, or speedboat transfer will be a captivating experience as well.
Often, these transfers will be arranged for your convenience by the relevant resort.
If all this sounds like a lot of work, then just hire a team-building company in Singapore to help you create a team-building event to remember.
