I love this time of year, and I love Holiday Team Building events!
I find that more team work is exhibited during the holiday season than any other time of the year. Everything from a family working together to put together a family holiday meal, to a corporate work team having a holiday party, or groups of people helping out with making sure underprivileged kids get gifts that they may not normally get without someone caring enough to organize a team to give back to their local community. It is my observation that there are three reasons that corporate team building is so effective at this time of year.
The first reason is that corporate teams tend to look out for their fellow man during the holiday season. Corporate teams or groups come together to participate in some kind of activity that focuses on giving back to another underprivileged person or group. They will either sponsor a child or a whole family to buy gifts or holiday meals. They feel it’s their responsibility to ensure that others get to enjoy the season as well.
The second reason is that people, for the most part, are happier at this time of year more than at other times of the year.
Holiday parties or corporate team building events are something that team members look forward to because they are more inclined to celebrate with others during this season. Even the most stoic (or Grinch-like) person tends to melt when they receive a card or present from a fellow team member.
The third reason that holiday team building works is that people feel great when they give back!
Most people know the old adage that “It’s better to give than receive”. But, it seems that giving back during the holiday season makes us feel just a little better. We feel more blessed and want to share our good fortune with others by making their holiday season a little brighter. Giving back to our local community is a company’s way of saying “We care about those around us.”
There are many ways that a team can give back. Helping at a food shelter, sponsoring a child or family, or taking up an offering from the group. Magnovo Training Group offers many ways for a group to give back to a local charity and have a great time doing it. We offer many Holiday Team Building Events that focus on giving back to your local community. As a matter of fact, All of our team building workshops center around having fun and giving back.
Our Bike-a-Thon Team Building Workshop gives bikes to young kids in community that might not ever have a bike otherwise. It’s a fantastic way to have an incredible impact on your local community.
The Wagon Builders Team Building Workshop is an event that will bring your team closer together while giving local children’s hospitals or child care centers wagons that are full of thousands of dollars of gifts. The gifts don’t cost you a penny more because of Magnovo’s exclusive partnership with Kathryn’s Kloset .
We have many more Team Building Workshops to choose from, and all of them are centered around giving back. You can build bicycles, stuffed animals, or put together a food package for the underprivileged in your community.
