“Thank you for an excellent Team Building day, it is clear that your staff enjoy the work they do which makes for a rewarding experience for all. The organisation and professionalism displayed in both the preparation and the execution of the day was excellent, and all at a very reasonable cost.”

The main goals of team-building are to improve productivity and motivation. Taking employees out of the work place helps groups break down social and professional barriers, eliminate distractions, and have fun. The benefits of team building programs are so significant that many corporations have incorporated teambuilding strategies into their standard training curriculum.
Working well together is essential for maintaining a successful and efficient company, but often this isn’t something that just naturally occurs. Here are a number of benefits that you’ll gain through your team building in partnership with Gateway Adventure:
• Building Better Teams
• Company-Wide Co-operation
• Create a Positive Workplace Ethos
• Developing and Defining Roles
• Improved Productivity
• Improved Relationships
• Increased Morale
• More Fluid Communication
• Positive Working Environment
Gateway Adventure can offer bespoke or standard packages to suit any organisation’s requirements. These are available on or off-site at a local park or Scout camp. We provide itineraries for companies with 2-Day to 5-Day residential programmes.
