Spring is finally here, which means that there’s probably room in your company budget for some out-of-office activities that are fun, productive and show your employee appreciation. If you’re tired of the usual company picnic, why not organize a whitewater rafting adventure for the whole team? Build trust and teamwork amongst your employees and departments while immersing yourself in all the beauty and splendour Quebec has to offer. Here are three simple reasons to take your employees on a whitewater rafting trip.
Progress Through Teamwork
It’s no secret that whitewater rafting demands that everyone work together. It may not be as comfortable or as laid back as a company picnic or dinner outing, but then again, your employees would probably jump at the idea of getting out of their chairs and spending the day outside. The beauty of whitewater rafting is that the only way to achieve a specific goal, i.e. reach a destination, is to work together by communicating effectively and doing one’s fair share of the work. Whitewater rafting builds people’s confidence and allows you to appreciate each other’s strengths.
Connecting in Nature
At the heart of Club Raft’s philosophy is an inherent love of nature and all that beautiful Quebec has to offer. So often are we confined to the city or suburbs that we rarely find moments to take in the breathtaking scenery of this wonderfully lush and ecologically diverse province. Taking your team out of their normal environment and into the middle of nature draws them closer together and allows them to share in a unique experience that will forever connect them.
More Fun than a Picnic
At the end of the day, whitewater rafting is an exhilarating experience that gets the adrenaline pumping. Although every team member is fully equipped with helmet and life jacket and led by an experienced guide, the thrill of the waves and the spray of water will excite their senses and get their blood flowing. All that excitement is b
ound to make them hungry! Club Raft’s full day trips come with a delicious riverside lunch.
So if you want to show your team how much you appreciate the work they’ve done for the company while providing an experience that improves team building and communication, a whitewater rafting adventure may just be your perfect solution.
