Round the year, you must have smartly conducted team-building activities, with the actual spends turning out to be less than the budgeted ones. And now as the fiscal year (FY) 2016-17 comes to an end, you might be wondering how to spend the entire team-building budget so that you don’t lose any unspent budget and can receive similar or increased budgets for the next FY. You are probably seeking that one activity that turns out to be both efficient and effective at the same time. So, why not invest in group experiences for your employees?
As a preferred form of team outings, group experiences can not only support you in reaching your employee engagement goals, but also help you increase retention and eventually benefit the organization. We bring to you the choice of different group experiences to help use your unspent budgets in an effective manner.
- Trek – Solang Valley to Patalsu Peak: Group adventures make for a high return-on-investment (RoI) people proposition. The rejuvenation element is high and adventures remain the talking point among employees for long.
An astounding peak that reaches up to 4,220m (13,845ft), the Patalsu Peak boasts of its scenic beauty and enchanting appeal. Located within the close proximity of the picturesque Kullu Valley, this soaring peak makes for a preferred trekking destination, and is also one of the most sought after trekking destinations in the region. Upon completion of this trekking sojourn, the trekkers get rewarded with promising views and an amazing sense of accomplishment.
- Vineyard Day Out: Group dining is a wonderful way for employees to bond and strike interesting conversations outside of work. These could be out-and-out fine dining experiences, or could involve touring a vineyard with wines and food, or a choco-fantasy tour at a chocolate factory.
Experience a day at the Grover Zampa Vineyard. Spend some quality time understanding the grape groves and learn the process of wine-making from grape stomping to wine tasting. It will be followed by a Chef's special lunch. Let your team sink in the world of wines and take away wonderful memories.
- Village Backwater Tour: Micro-holidaying at a serene destination such as a hill-station or a forest involving trekking, camping or jungle safari is a near-perfect answer to the need for group outings. It could also be organized at the coastal backwaters or the sun-drenched beaches of any coastal town. You could choose to be even more different with an outing to a remote village where you can engage with the locals.
Your team experiences the backwater cruise on a traditional country boat, punted by hand, and understands the rich and diverse backwater ecosystem with the introduction of daily lives of locals, while having Kerala meals at their space. The Village Backwater Tour is real life tourism at its best as it takes you off the crowded backwater highway and brings you face to face with the tranquility and peace of the narrower stretches.
