When companies plan team building events, they often forget about one important thing – fitness. However this can be incredibly important as was recently illustrated by the team on Test Match Special.
Regular listeners may have noticed a curious affliction that has affected Vic Marks of late. He has taken to standing up while doing commentary. When asked why by bemused colleagues he said it was his only way of getting regular exercise.
The problem Victor had was that his occupation is very sedentary and office workers face the same issues. It can be difficult to find time to get exercise in, especially during the winter months, but it’s worth the effort and companies should do everything they can to help.
Healthy employees are happy employees and as a result far more productive. You could organise a company football team, for example, or an indoor cricket side. You might set up a running club or a golfing tournament. Not only does it make them healthier, but by improving interaction among different parts of the company it will also help greatly with team building.
Fitness is often overlooked when planning team building exercises, but it can be hugely helpful to improve productivity. We can help you find the kind of activities that will work best for your company. Get in contact with our representatives to see how we can help.
