Treat your staff to team building this Christmas

The importance of team building in the workplace has been well documented, with Education Queensland saying it’s important for any employer who wants to get the best from his or her workforce. Team building activities focus on the sum of all parts involved, rather than relying on individual brilliance to reach a goal, and this teamwork approach is something that should be encouraged in the work environment.

The Australian Government’s JobAccess initiative says team building can not only develop and nurture interpersonal relationships within your staff, but also encourage team members to work together on unfamiliar, cooperative tasks that lead toward a common goal. Successful team building sessions can develop individual and team confidence and encourage camaraderie within your staff, which can only be a good thing upon your return to work after the holiday break.

For a team building experience with a difference, considering turning your employees into Master Chef contestants with a William Angliss Institute short course. Regardless of whether your staff members are interested in food or have only basic kitchen skills, they’ll bond over this corporate team building event that puts their cooking skills to the test.

Held in purpose built training kitchens, fully equipped with everything you need to whip up a gourmet dinner or delicious dessert, these courses allow your employees to get their hands dirty and produce meals they’ve only ever dreamed of. The dynamic experience is designed to be fun and interactive for all participants, and bring out the best in your employees and hone their teamwork skills. Guests are judged both independently and as groups, marked on creativity, consistency, team participation and, of course, the quality of the final product they produce.

Classes can last two, three or four hours, and winners get to take home their very own Master Chef trophy. Participants can take away their new-found knowledge with the help of recipe notes, and benefit from hands-on industry training from some of the best in the business. And with Christmas around the corner, it’s the perfect time to reward staff for their year of hard work while ensuring their skills and capacity for teamwork are still sharp come the new working year. As an employer it’s a no brainer, and your team will thank you when they are able to cook new dishes faster than the speed of light.
