People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they’re doing. – Dale Carnegie
As people start to spend more of their waking life at the workplace their feelings about the work environment directly affect their mental state and thereby quality of life.
There is a small but growing body of research on fun and how it boosts well-being at the workplace. Studies have found that being able to connect with co-workers while doing fun group activities increases an employee’s positive feelings and improves the quality of their work life.
So do you need to install a slide or a rock-climbing wall to get your employees to have more fun at the workplace? Not really.
Experts say that getting employees out of the office for corporate events provides them with more opportunities for bonding and collaboration. They get to see new sides of the people they work with and learn to be more appreciative of each other.
And this understanding does not end when they get back to the workplace. Companies are finding that these corporate bonding events at external venues have a lasting effect and are likely to enhance cooperation back at the organization.
As leading experts in corporate team building events, we at City Beach believe that play is a key factor in improving an individual’s quality of life as well as in helping teams bond.
At our Fremont and Santa Clara venues, companies can choose from a range of fun group activities that include sports, wine tasting or just hanging out at the beach together. All of which are known to improve trust and communication among team members.
City Beach facilitators work with you to maximize the potential of your corporate event and create one that meets your organizational needs and that all your employees will enjoy. With apologies to Dale Carnegie, when people have fun in what they are doing, everyone succeeds!
