Company Cookouts

Summertime brings great opportunities for fun cookouts with employees. A potluck cookout is a simple and effective way to get everyone away from their desks to enjoy the outdoors for an hour or two.

Your employees and co-workers will take care of the rest, and they will appreciate the opportunity to be outside on a nice summer day.

Employee Sports Teams

Another great thing about the summer is the availability of summer sport leagues. Get a group of your employees together to play in a company sponsored softball or volleyball league. The fun competitive nature of a company team is a great way build rapport among co-workers and the trusting relationships will likely carry over to your business objectives.

Some good team building activities include canoe trips, hiking, biking and much more. Numerous team building adventures are out there and summer weather provides a great opportunity to capitalize on many of these.

Whether you’re going on an adventure, playing a sport, or enjoying a relaxing cookout the summer provides ample opportunities for great team building exercises.
