Time for team building?

Time for team building?

2 July 2018

You may be building up a new team for a project; have a number of new starters; or simply found that your current team has lost some of its rapport. That’s where team building can help. Simply taking a day out of the office or work environment can pay dividends on team morale.

In the current work place there’s barely any time to stop for a break, or even a cup of tea; so it’s no wonder some teams can feel that they barely see their colleagues from one day to the next. Is this the best way to work? Probably not. Do colleagues know each other’s strengths? Maybe not. Is this good for your business? Well, that’s debatable.

A happy team is a healthy team, not only for themselves, but for your business too. So why not take time out, bring them together, and host an event? The Mercure York Fairfield Manor hotel is the perfect venue for hosting your team building events.

There’s nothing quite like the outdoors to get together with your team. From agile assault courses, to sumo suits, or giant jenga, the possibilities for entertaining and motivating your team are endless. What’s more you can round off the day with a bonding barbecue, or heavenly hog roast.

If you’re thinking that the great outdoors isn’t suited to your team, then we can hold strategic team building events inside too. Alternatively, the event might be more of a fun way for the team to get to know each other, so why not host a quiz or other challenge? Of course, catering to suit your needs can be provided too, from an informal buffet, to a full evening meal.

The hotel is an ideal venue; easily accessible, just 3 miles from York, with plenty of parking, and overnight accommodation available too. What better way to bring your team together?

If you think a team building event might be what it takes to get your team motivated, build rapport, and give them a bit of fun, the Mercure York Fairfield Manor can help. Just call Anna on 01904 225 012 or email
