Team building outdoors has become extremely popular over recent years, mostly for it’s wellbeing benefits for employees. Every business is different, and your budget, seasonality and size of business may determine how many times you take your team outdoors for some fun in the sun! We recommend booking outdoor team building events as regularly as possible, monthly, bi-monthly or just once during the warmer months if your budget is small. 

Being outdoors in green open spaces has been proven to have positive effect on productivity and mood in the workplace, so it goes without saying the more you expose the people within your business to the positive influences of the outdoors and team building, the more benefits your business will see. 

So, what are the benefits of outdoor team building activities for your employees? Here are 5 key benefits to getting your team outdoors.

1. Wellbeing: Research shows that getting out in the fresh air reduces cortisol levels and helps your employees let off some steam; ideal for businesses looking to manage change or celebrate after a period of intense effort in the workplace.

2. Trust and rapport: “We are all in this together.” When engaged in simple team activities, each person is at the same level. New relationships can be forged, including respect, trust and a renewed sense of camaraderie.

3. Unlocked creativity: It’s proven in a study by Stanford University, that getting back to nature helps people to unlock their creative side. This is great for teams looking to innovate and generate fresh ideas.

4. Feeling valued: With our expertly-managed corporate outdoor activities, staff recognise that time and money have been invested in their success. That feeling of appreciation not only motivates at the office but also inspires loyalty.

5. It’s fun! Can you think of a more rewarding day at work than being outside in the summer sun, with the smells of the BBQ cooking and your team laughing as they take part in fun, wacky challenges as part of their outdoor team building event?

Any outdoor team building event is beneficial to employees. Being outdoors helps elevate morale and therefore productivity. Some events are more active than others and offer more wellbeing benefits, these include It’s a Knockout, Inflatable Games, Corporate Treasure Hunts and Retro Sports Day.

Would you like to improve team bonding, increase productivity, ignite ambition or perhaps provide some fun for your employees as a reward for some hard work? Not only can we recommend the right team bonding ideas but we tailor it to suit your preferences, the abilities and ages of each person and the type of experience you’d like. This means that every event we create is unique and when you depart, we are confident you will notice the difference in the workplace – giving you a great return on your investment. To identify the best ideas to improve communication and encourage team bonding for your industry or objective it’s best to speak to us. We pride ourselves in being able to recommend the best options, using every ounce of our 30+ years’ experience as a leading team building company to identify events that are ideal for you.

Here are some ideas of activities specifically great for team bonding:

  1. Full Day Outside
    Such as our outdoor version of The Crystal Clear Challenge and outdoor Country Pursuits are perfect for an entire day, giving ample time to strengthen the team – perfect for departmental and team away days.
  2. Compliment Your Conference
    With our outdoor Soap Box Derby, an activity that brings an engaging and fun element before and after conferences or corporate events; fitting into your agenda to aid team collaboration and motivate delegates.
  3. Family Fun In The Sun
    Such as inflatable games and circus skills workshops are ideal for outdoor corporate family fun days and fetes, where you can reward staff and families together and really increase employee morale.

Let the games begin… outside!

No corporate event or team away day is complete without a fun activity that brings everyone together and demonstrates how much the business values the hard work of each member.

Choosing to hold your corporate games outdoors is the only way to truly get away from the office environment, get outside in the sun and away from the restrictions of the conference room.

Attendee expectations are far higher than they were pre pandemic which explains why companies are looking for new ways to increase engagement, interaction and entertainment as their corporate events. Here are some ways in which outdoor team building can be incorporated into your next business event:

Full Day Outside: The Crystal Clear Challenge and Country Pursuits are perfect for an entire day, giving ample time to strengthen the team – perfect for departmental and team away days.

Compliment Your Conference: With our Soap Box Derby, an activity that brings an engaging and fun element before and after conferences or corporate events; fitting into your agenda to aid team collaboration and motivate delegates.

Family Fun In The Sun: Inflatable games and circus skills workshops are ideal for corporate family fun days and fetes, where you can reward staff and families together and really increase employee morale.

Our top ideas for outdoor team building in smaller groups would include Country Pursuits and Olympic Games. These are fun team building activities, guaranteed to get everyone having fun.

Most outdoor team building activities we offer can be scaled up to cater for larger group sizes. Large groups of 50 – 300 are best taking part in activities such as our outdoor ‘Multi Activity Days‘ or our most popular outdoor event – Team Building Treasure Hunts, as activities like this allow you to split into smaller teams, meaning you have no delegates waiting around, everyone can take part at the same time. This way you get more benefit from outdoor team building and far better return on investment in terms of employee skill development, communication and collaboration. 

You can pretty much add any outdoor team activity onto your conference, it all depends on time and accessibility to outdoor space at your conference venue.

Favourite outdoor team activities for conferences include: The Crystal Clear Challenge and The Soap Box Derby – both of which are the perfect combination of fun, intense and challenging. 

Team building outside can be done as part of an away day, as a single activity or added onto a conference. You can have multiple team activities but it is advisable to only have one activity for up to two hours to keep attendees engaged. You can add multiple outdoor activities to make a full day of events, should you wish. Speak to our team building event management team for ideas on your agenda. 

The majority of our outdoor team building activities can be delivered at convenient locations and venues across the UK and designed to be a fun way to get more familiar with an area – such as our high-tech treasure hunts.

You can choose to have competitive or non-competitive activities depending on your objectives and team’s ability. All employees will enjoy taking part because we tailor each event to suit the abilities, ages, interests and number of participants in your group.

So, whatever your reason for holding your corporate event outdoors, you can be sure our ideas are not only designed to meet the objectives of your business, but are also constructed to be fun and inspiring for both you and your colleagues.
