Filipino companies often schedule team building during summer because it is an excellent opportunity for employees to bond and build relationships outside the workplace.

The warm weather also allows for outdoor activities and teambuilding games, which can be refreshing and fun. Additionally, summer is usually a slow season for some industries, making it a convenient team-building time. Summer outings are essential to building a solid team in a company. These events give employees a well-deserved break from the daily routine and offer an opportunity to build relationships, improve communication, and foster a sense of camaraderie among colleagues.

As mentioned, this article reiterates the importance of team-building; these fun activities help people see each other in a different light and allow them to connect in different settings. That’s why here at Amihan to Solutions, we make it a point to promote a strong company culture mixed with Swiss & Filipino values.  With this blog, you will explore the importance of summer outings for team-building in a company and a deep dive into what we accomplished in our FIRST-EVER summer company outing last March 31-April 1, 2023.

Here’s a short video that summarizes the highlights of the events.

Firstly, summer outings serve as a great way to break down barriers between employees.

When colleagues are placed in a relaxed, informal setting, it becomes easier to connect personally. This can lead to new friendships, which can translate into better working relationships in the office. It can also break down any communication barriers that may exist between employees. When individuals feel comfortable with one another, they are more likely to communicate effectively and collaborate on projects. As we did during our team building, we enjoyed activities with other teammates not part of our circle of work friends. 

Secondly, summer outings can help to improve morale within a company.

The daily grind of work can be draining, and taking time out to celebrate successes and recharge is essential. Summer outings allow employees to let their hair down and have fun, which can boost morale. It can also show employees that the company values their hard work and is willing to invest in their well-being. 

Thirdly, summer outings can promote teamwork and collaboration.

Many summer outings involve teambuilding activities that require individuals to work together to achieve a common goal. These activities can be a great way to improve teamwork and collaboration skills. By working together outside of the office, employees can learn more about each other’s strengths and weaknesses, which can be helpful in the office when working together on projects.

Fourthly, summer outings provide an opportunity for employees to learn new skills.

Many summer outings involve activities that employees may have yet to try. For example, a company may organize a teambuilding cooking class or a sporting event like a softball game. These activities allow employees to learn new skills, which can benefit personal and professional development. We expanded our creative minds for our teambuilding event with a Flag making activity. 

Finally, summer outings can be a great way to show appreciation to employees.

A summer outing can be a way to show employees that the company recognizes their hard work and is grateful for their contributions. Employees who feel valued and appreciated are more likely to be engaged and productive at work.

Summer outings are a vital part of team-building in a company. They allow employees to build relationships, improve communication, boost morale, promote teamwork and collaboration, learn new skills, and feel appreciated. If your company still needs to organize a summer outing, it’s worth considering. Not only will it benefit your employees, but it can also positively impact the company’s overall success.
