Corporate Team Building Ideas – helpingout with a Charity Event

July 2, 2008

At FindaConferenceVenue.com we go the extra mile to come up with different ideas for team building days out of the office.  Raising money for charities and worthwhile causes can be an excellent team building activity to consider. This is a great way for your company to not only support the work of a local organisation but also provide a perfect team building, networking event in an innovative manner. 

This way both participants and charities win. On the one hand, participants will have an unforgettable experience and contribute to social responsibility and on the other hand charities will gain big support as they receive little or no government funding.

Interesting activities would involve, working with the elderly, working with the young and working with disadvantaged groups, assisting with housing projects  – painting walls, general tidy up of an area, helping to insulate housing for the elderly or a school for disadvantaged kids.

Whatever responsible team building activity you choose remember to make it a shared experience for all the team members. Involve and include all of them and take plenty of photos to post on the company website, share with clients and have posted in the cafeteria.  Finally, make it a worthwhile and sustainable cause.

Team Building Activities and Corporate Social Responsibility

July 1, 2008

At FindaConferenceVenue.com we are making it easy to plan corporate events. Below are some great ideas on how to plan a ‘Green’ Team Building event.

Team building activities can also be used as a means to raise awareness among employees of concepts like Corporate Social Responsibility, fair-trade and the ripple effect of these. These concepts are the talk of the town but most people are unclear of what they really mean.

One of the star ‘responsible’ team building activities is ‘Tree Planting”. It can be a great day of fun and easy to plan. It consists of employees planting trees in reserves and managed woodland so as to preserve the nature and contribute to offset their carbon emission. This way your company will work towards a more sustainable, lower carbon-emitting events industry and your employees will have fun while learning the concepts of sustainability.

Rooted in Ireland is an oak planting project in Drumconwell, which is just outside of Armagh. They are open to having a group but it would only be in Spring or Autum, as these are the times at which they plant.
The following are a few suggestions on great outdoor team building venues in Ireland – Toddsleap – only 90 mins from Belfast and Dublin, Killashee House in Naas – 45 mins from Dublin,  Fota House in Cork- a beautiful stately house with themed park and golf course, or a the perfect Boutique Hotel in Kenmare – The Brooklane.
