Winter Staff Retreat Activities? Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Choose Cooking Team Building from CEO Chef!
Although winter staff retreats can be enjoyable, it’s often difficult to find a fun and engaging activity that works for everyone in today’s diverse corporate environment. CEO Chef’s team-building cooking course is the perfect solution. Continue reading to learn more about why CEO Chef’s team-building cooking course is a must-have ingredient at your winter staff retreat.
You Can Stand the Heat
One of the top challenges you will face when choosing activities for your winter staff retreat is the weather. While most team building activities are conducted outside, cooking classes are given indoors. This means everyone will be warm, comfortable, and excited to dig in and participate in the tasty course.
Team Building Can Be Delicious and Insightful
Team-building cooking courses allow everyone to essentially start at the same level. As a result, participants will be forced to draw on, create, and follow a team process to complete the task successfully. This new experience also requires everyone to work together and collaborate in a close proximity, which aids in developing relationships. In the end, including a cooking course in your staff retreat activities can be a delicious way to expose your employee’s hidden talents. .
Develop New Relationships
Although you may see your employees every day, nothing brings everyone closer than cooking and eating. Similar to Thanksgiving, your team will act like a family to foster better communication, increased productivity, and more appreciation for each other. In addition to creating new internal relationships, this satisfaction will also filter through to impact customer interactions.
The Recipe for a Win-Win Success
Anytime you choose cooking staff retreat activities, your brand will enjoy major successes. Some of the most common successes include maximized profitability, ability to meet cross-functional challenges, ability to respond quicker to change, and better employee retention. At the same time, your employees will learn valuable new cooking skills that will enhance their life away from work, which equals a win-win success.
We Travel to You
One of the biggest expenses of engaging in staff retreat activities is the expense of shuffling the entire team across the globe. At CEO Chef our goal is to keep the expenses as low as possible by coming to you. The instructors at CEO Chef can customize the class so it works best for your brand, and even accommodate any special dietary needs.
