A productive group of an employee are the backbone of any successful company. The love for the job and a good relationship with colleagues are really a factor that makes them stick to a company. But because of various reasons, even after choosing a job they love, the excitement for completing their task tend to decrease day by day.
This not only affects their performance but definitely impact on the growth of the company. So it’s important to get them charged when their battery is low. Choosing the right energy tablet is in your hand, like even a slice of pizza may work magic than a half-day off.
So are you ready to choose the perfect corporate event or activities for boosting the productivity of your employees? Then you are in the right place. We have a bunch of outdoor activities ideas to choose from.
It will be best to choose after considering the reasons behind why your employees get less productive or tending to low their performance.
What may be the reasons behind lowering employee productivity at the workplace?
Some of the reasons are:
- Lack of recognition
- Less communication
- Lack of unity among various departments or within a group
- Sleep deprivation
A survey by global advisory and solutions company Towers Watson found that high-stress levels at work lead to higher absentee levels and low productivity. Like that overloading employees with more work, in turn, increases the stress level.
Even a small appreciation brings a big leap in the performance of an employee. Or otherwise, it may tend to make them less interesting to work without recognizing their effort.
Less communication and lack of unity among the employees also have an adverse effect. This usually starts with a gap between senior and junior employees.
And the end result of all in some way or other affects our sleep ( that’s really a nightmare..). This is founded as effecting the performance of more than 60% of employees
So when we know the reasons, how can we incorporate it with choosing an event for them? Let’s discuss it below.
Research published in the international journal of science and research shows that investing in employee training programs can improve employee satisfaction and lead to greater efficiency and productivity.
From Coffeeshop trip to international trips, we can choose an outdoor activity for our employees. But when we have to arrange an event? For that my answer is “make a reason to celebrate”. Let it be an annual party, seminars, appreciation event, Christmas or new year celebration, etc.
Some of the activities to choose from are:
Coffee shop trip
After every evening being exhausted after work, what we really looking forward is to be get relaxed and have a cup of hot coffee or tea (hmm.. even thinking about it is so relaxing).
Such a good way to arrange a small gathering and these will help in giving additional time for your employees to chit chat and improve their communication. No wonder why a number of tea and coffee shops arises at every nook and corner, as they won’t wipe us out soon.
For celebrating a birthday or achievement of a colleague in a simple way, this is the best place. You can watch the growth of your team within.
Also, you can arrange a small meeting with your team here, as it gives away different ambiance that your conference room.
This is one of the less expensive and effective ways of outdoor activities. This way one can establish a strong relationship with their employees. And can reduce the reasons behind low productivity.

Making your team get close through brunch with adventures water sports activities like deep water swimming, snorkeling and water sports activities. A way too much to talk and discuss than having a bread sandwich (haha). The best way to open them up and being friendly with the team. An adventurous brunch party on the sea are always welcoming and with the best team is excellent.
