Tasty TexMex Challenge, cup of salsa and guacamole

Welcome Spring!

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

We started off this month with our Tasty Tex Mex Challenge, hosting over 26 teams and 260 guests.  Their salsa and guacamole creations were some of the best we’ve ever tasted. Who knew you didn’t need to be a gourmet chef to create these spicy dishes.

Start enjoying the spring weather by bringing your office team together for a couple of hours one afternoon. It’ll help boost morale, encourage creativity and increase productivity in your office.
Team building is not what it was five years ago… In these days of gadgets, many companies feel that they need to incorporate technology into their team building program.

This is not always true!

Pulling employees away from their everyday work routine for something as simple as making salsa and guacamole will do just as well (and sometimes better) as tech gadgetry to boost the overall morale of your group.

When looking for a team building program, consider the following:

Why do you want to host a team building event?

How long can you set aside from the work day to allow your team to participate in an activity?

Should you do something at your office or take the group offsite?

What do you want to accomplish with the activity?

Should you incorporate a community give back?

What’s your budget?

Ah, the “B” word – Budget.  Budget is typically the first thing that companies look at when deciding which program will work best for their group. Yes, the bottom line for one program is a key factor, but what about the influence it has on your team afterwards?

Will you truly get the outcome you are looking for by going the cheapest route?

That old saying “you get what you pay for” stands true for most team building companies. We don’t suggest you hire the most expensive company but do your research and hire the best company to work with you and your team.

You will know when it’s a good fit.

Working together as a team while accomplishing something is always a rewarding feeling!

And remember…if plan A doesn’t work, there are 25 other letters in the alphabet!
