MICE: Teambuilding events in times of Covid19
After months of home office in the last two years, meetings, conferences, and seminars are a good opportunity to strengthen the team and collegial spirit in the company. The region Saalfelden Leogang offers a wide range of teambuilding activities outdoors. For indoor events, there are well worked out safety concepts and hygiene measures.
Climbing, archery and Flying Fox XXL: team events strengthen the team spirit
Aber nicht nur Klettern oder durch die Lüfte schweben stärken das Gemeinschaftsgefühl im Team, sondern auch beim Bogenschießen fördert man Teamkompetenzen wie etwa Geschicklichkeit und Konzentration.
Für Pflanzenliebhaber gibt es die Möglichkeit, mit dem Team einen Kräuterworkshop zu besuchen und damit die Traditionelle Europäische Heilkunde (TEH) kennenzulernen. In diesem Kurs erhält man Einblicke zu den Heilmethoden heimischer Pflanzen und erkundet den Kräutergarten. Anschließend bereitet man unter fachmännischer Anleitung eine Tinktur mit frisch gepflückten Kräutern und Wurzeln zu oder kreiert eine Kräutersalbe für den Körper.
Are you ready for some thrill and pure adrenaline? The via ferrata and the Flying Fox XXL in Saalfelden Leogang guarantee you thrilling adventures. Everyone is a little bit scared sometimes. “But action-oriented outdoor programs act as a mirror and projection screen in the non-work environment. This strengthens the team from the inside out,” says Anna Oja from the Outdoor Team Geisler. Bosses and employees experience an unforgettable adventure. The joint accomplishment of these tasks create trust and security in dealing with each other and also strengthens the sense of unity. In short, the emotional experiences unite the team. For this reason, a stay away from the daily office routine, where you are active, master unusual situations and cheer for each other, is excellent to improve the working atmosphere.
But not only climbing and flying with the Flying Fox XXL strengthens the team spirit, but also archery improves your concentration and skills and the team competence.
