Events & culture
Off-site meetings, events and team building are an excellent tool to help grow your business and at The Elvetham we have 4 wonderful function rooms which are perfect for that purpose, as well as 35 acres of beautiful gardens for team building activities. Below we list our top 5 reasons why we think off-site meetings can help your business grow:
1. Inspire your team
A change of location can be a good way to inspire your team through a visual stimulus. new sights and experience can increase motivation for their task ahead with the promise of an enjoyable and different day at the office. The stunning meeting rooms and surrounding countryside at The Elvetham are an incredible backdrop to help inspire any business event.
2. Get creative
New surroundings have been known to increase peoples creative thinking, breaking away from the regular office environment and day-to-day duties. A new environment helps to motivate and stimulate employees giving them the freedom to express themselves and come up with new ideas that could help boost your business. This encouraged engagement from all levels of the organisation could lead to inspiring the next market-beating idea!
The surrounding gardens and countryside of The Elvetham is a nature rich environment, which is also known to increase peoples mental wellbeing and happiness. This will inevitably lead to higher job satisfaction and productivity.
3. Accomplish more
Using off-site meetings helps reinforces the time sensitive manner of your project, which can often be lost in an office environment. Setting a focused agenda’s and clear objectives will allow your team to utilise the time they have effectively.
4. Distraction free environment
The office can often be a distracting environment needing to answer phones, answer emails and other office distractions that may occur. Taking meetings off site will distance your team from these routine distractions to help them focus on completing large projects or help to achieve objectives.
The private meeting rooms at The Elvetham provide the perfect place for a distraction free meetings, whilst the surrounding grounds and break-out spaces allow delegates space to escape the meeting room during breaks. We can provide AV equipment for presentations and stationary for individual and group workshopping.
5. Boost morale
Getting the team out of the office is a great way to boost morale by showing that the company values them as an employees, this can be displayed even further with a special thank you dinner for the team to share and wind down from their hard days work. A change of environment and routine can encourage collaboration and team camaraderie through their sense of achievement, these attributes can be strengthened even further by the addition of a team building event where your staff can take art in different activities either encouraging team work or team bonding.
