It’s no secret: we think team building is awesome.
We love helping companies plan the perfect event: something that fits with their corporate culture that involves company values, interests, and goals, while still bringing employees together in a super fun way.
Sometimes, though, we forget that it’s just as important for our team to connect with each other. Recently, we realized our company was well overdue for some team building and bonding of our own, so we planned an employee retreat to Philadelphia to remind ourselves why we love what we do and to make sure we’re living the team building life.
Bringing The Amazing Race To Company Team Building
The retreat began amid a cloud of mystery. Only a few staff members knew what waited for them when the team met in Madison Square Park on the first morning of the retreat. The night before, the group received a text message with a few covert details: we split our employees into teams, assigned team leads, and revealed the morning’s meeting spot. Most employees showed up with a backpack, knowing they’d be heading out of town for a few days, but unsure as to where they’d be going and what they’d be doing.
