The “dog days of summer” are just around the corner and this is the season when employees start to check out, mentally and physically. Bosses are looking for new ways to keep their teams engaged and productive, while motivating them throughout the summer. Consider culinary team building as the perfect way to cap off the end of the work week and a great excuse to play hooky on a Friday afternoon.
Below are five “hot” reasons to turn off the computers at noon and head over to Normandy Farm Hotel & Conference Center to see what’s cookin’ with your team.
1. Follow the leader
At work, your boss may be defined as the leader, however when you are on a culinary team building team, you can choose who will lead your team to gastronomic victory. When everyone is wearing an apron and chef’s hat, the playing field is leveled between management and across department lines.
2. Three hours well spent
Taking a team outside of an office setting and exposing them to new experiences will force them to think outside of their normal routine. You won’t be gone for the entire day, just a few hours.
3. The show must go on, rain or shine
Just in case Mother Nature decides to rain on your parade, we have under cover space for grilling as well. In the summertime, our most popular event is our BBQ Challenge. So you think you’re a grill master? Let our expert team of chefs be the judge.
4. Something different for a change
Are you tired of the same old same old? How many game shows can you play and do you really want to go bowling again? If you have never tried culinary team building, you’ve got to give it a whirl at least once. Choose from our menu of culinary events including BBQ, Sweet Success (cupcakes), and Twister (soft pretzels) to name a few.
5. Bragging rights
And the winning team is (drum roll)…..Truth be told, our chef does award the winning team for the best dish, however everyone is essentially a winner if they participate. Our motto is: “The team that cooks together stays together” and that’s a lot to brag about.
Want to start bragging? Give us a call at (215) 616-8500 and our team of experts will be happy to help book your next team building!
