Small guide to organising a successful teambuilding

Nowadays, team building events are very popular and tend to incorporate a wide variety of themes. Considering that there are quite a few companies that can organise team building London events, here are a few guidelines that you base your event after:

Don’t forget the problem you are trying to solve

There are a few events that can lead a manager to think that a teambuilding is in order and you should not forget these events when you start planning it. Even if you are not sure why you have been asked to organise a team building, you should ask why, because you will have the chance to learn more about the people you are managing, find out their problems and establish a few objectives that you want to reach during this team building. This way you can tell your organiser about these objectives and thus enable them to come up with a few ideas that will work best for your situation.

What is your budget?

You should be realistic when choosing the budget for this event and keep in mind that they are not exactly cheap, especially if you have a larger number of employees. Since the manager is the one who will be paying for the entire event, you should discuss with the person organising it to maintain within the budget and offer you detailed information about how much everything is going to cost. From venue hire and refreshments to all activities and even accommodation if needed, you should consider your budget before jumping into any type of idea that you simply cannot afford. One of the biggest mistakes many managers make is not telling their event organiser how much they want to spend, thinking that it will affect the commission they have to pay afterwards. However, you could save a lot more money by informing your organiser exactly how much you are willing to spend, you will have the peace of mind that your team building will not go over budget.

How many people will take part in your event?

Before you even contact the organiser, you should consider how many people will take part in your event as well as think of their ages and their preferences. If your employees are mainly young, other activities might be more suitable than for a 40 something years old group of people. In addition, having an approximate number of participants will enable the organiser to book the entire event and offer you an accurate estimate of how much this team building will cost you.

All in all, these are the main guidelines that you should keep in mind when organising a team building. No matter what you had in mind, you should always take into account these 3 suggestions, as they will help you have a more successful event and you and your team will have more fun, without having to worry about anything. As long as your goals are clear and you have established a budget with your organiser, you should not have any unpleasant surprises.
