Every year, it is customary to do something for your team to show your appreciation and encourage office comradery. While there is, of course, nothing wrong with opting for the traditional holiday office party, why not do something special this year and take your team out of the office for a bit?
Most companies were unable to do anything of this nature for their workers last year due to the ongoing effects and impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Thankfully, though, this year is going to feel much closer to normal than it has in a while. Because of this, you can make up for lost time by doing something extra special for your employees.
If you are looking to do something extra special for your team this year than a standard Christmas party, you might be wondering just where you should take everyone. Here are a couple of suggestions to consider that everyone in the office will really look forward to and enjoy.
Sometimes, it can be fun to take things outside of the office and experience something new as a team. The Christmas display at Busch Gardens is a great option for groups that love to get out and about and would rather not be stuck inside for their holiday party this year.
Busch Gardens has a variety of rides and attractions that will have you all feeling like kids again, just in time for the holidays. It is also a family-friendly sort of outing for those groups that prefer to make Christmas parties a family affair.
You also don’t have to worry about spending a fortune on tickets for your team. You can use Busch Gardens coupons to help take the edge of the cost of this amazing holiday outing for your employees this Christmas.
An Escape Room
If you are looking to double up this year and use the holiday party as an opportunity to work on teamwork in your office, consider booking a holiday-themed escape room. Not only are escape rooms essentially a team-building exercise in disguise, but this type of outing is something that everyone in your group will remember and enjoy.
Even though escape rooms can end up being a bit on the pricey side, you can end up getting a good value for your money at most venues when you book with a larger group. In the end, you and your team will have a great time and learn to work together.
One great alternative to the traditional holiday party is to turn it into an opportunity to give back to your local community. Consider getting your team together to volunteer for a non-profit organization. You can make a day of it and get into the true spirit of Christmas.
There are a variety of organizations that need a helping hand during the holiday season. Just make sure to book your day early enough in advance to make sure that the number of volunteers that you are bringing can all work together as part of a team.
