The Castle of Bern, an unforgettable team building idea

Team building is the key to a cohesive company. It improves communication within your company and thus develops team spirit among colleagues. A successful team building event starts with a suitable location. The Château de Berne, located in the heart of Provence, is the perfect place for an authentic and unforgettable team building.

Organising a team building event? What an idea!

Team building" means "team building" in French. It is an aspect that must be maintained for a company to survive. However, many people think, wrongly, that team building is not for them. What an idea!
Team building is about learning to work as a team. In a playful way, in a less formal environment, participants are encouraged to develop their communication skills: a key skill when working in a team. The best idea for successful team building is a well-balanced mix of conviviality and competition. The objectives set during the activities require a group cohesion that leads the employees to reinforce their team spirit. A group identity will be built up and will help to reduce internal conflicts within the company, when returning to work.

The four imperatives for the implementation of a team building idea

As we said, successful team building starts with the right venue. In order for the participants to get out of the work environment, it is necessary to get them, literally, out of the work environment. Leave your company's premises for an afternoon, a day or a weekend with a change of scene.
Once this geographical break has been created, your employees can easily drop their worker's mask and get to know each other, human being to human being. It is imperative that they disconnect from their daily lives to ensure proper participation in activities.
When developing your team building idea, think about what messages and objectives you want to convey to your employees. This will guide you in choosing a venue that suits your ideas and values.
Finally, don't neglect the practical side. Travel time, transportation, accessibility of the location, the possibility of accommodation on site: to strengthen your team, show them that you are choosing the best for them.
