Now, more than ever, corporate team building activities are a vital part of a company’s budget. Through the power of shared experience, employees gain important skills, create interpersonal connections and feel like they are more than just another face within the company. At Merrimack Valley Pavilion, we offer affordable group rates for companies seeking a fun new way to foster team building with corporate laser tag outings! An evening of group fun and competition at our Tewksbury laser tag arena targets three critical areas for business success:
- Teamwork: Laser tag is a team game, where all of the members must work together to assault or defend their objectives. During the game the team must learn to communicate and vocalize their situation in order for the team to succeed. A game gives the more timid members of the company a safe and fun environment to speak up and make their voice heard in ways they never would in the office.
- Pressured Problem-Solving: Sometimes the best solutions to complex problems come when you are under fire. The best teams in a laser tag game are those that can create strategies, but more importantly, modify their strategies in the face of the enemy. Your employees will learn to hone their thinking skills and come up with creative solutions on the fly, as skill that translates well when they return to the office.
- Interdepartmental Networking: One of the biggest reasons corporate team building activities exist is to encourage interdepartmental communication. Sally in processing may never speak with Mark in sales during the work week, but when they play on the same laser tag team, they form a shared experience that carries over to their jobs. The next time that someone in sales has an issue with processing, Mark will be able to utilize the relationship he formed with Sally during their game and speed up the process of communication.
MVP has a huge facility ready to handle almost any size group event. Special rates are available for groups of 20 or more, so plan to bring the entire office out for an evening of fun and team building this January. The rewards you reap will strengthen your bottom line throughout 2015 and drive your company towards greater success.
