No need to worry about rain any more when planning your team event - we've built an all new, all weather venue. Our team challenges can be done under cover, and it's even decked out with a fire for winter. It's situated underneath our restaurant, (just off our cellar door) and provides us with 225m space to play away, and then you simply come upstairs for lunch or dinner.
Our activities are for ages 10 years right up to in those in their 80's. No physical fitness required, some people are the brawn, and others are the brain of the operation. Of course we need you to follow our tutored instructions, let your hair down and your competitive streak go wild.
There's heaps of options on how to get here
Have you ever been to a party or a team-building event where the group activities were less than enjoyable (see: crap). Planning group activities is a fine art, and it’s one the team at Wild On Waiheke takes very seriously. You need to have a balance between challenging and entertaining with a bit of alcohol and a lot of food. No one does group activities in Auckland quite like Wild On Waiheke, so we’ve decided to impart some wisdom and let you in on the dos and don’ts of planning a team building day.
You need to book a team building day at Wild On Waiheke pronto if you recognise the following red flags.
Office politics is taking over. If your team are spending way more energy on disputes, gossip, or office politics, it’s time to let everyone reconnect over a few drinks and a few games of volleyball.
There’s a lack of communication and collaboration. When people feel isolated at work, they’re far less likely to be at their most productive. You need to foster communication and collaboration in the workplace, but if you’re struggling, you may need to take it outside the office. Where? Oh, we don’t know… maybe to an island just off the coast of Auckland...
There’s an increase in absenteeism. Absenteeism every now and then is okay, but if people are chucking sickies on the regular, it’s indicative of a way bigger problem. You need to give your team a reason to feel motivated, connect with one another, and enjoy coming to work again. One way to do that is to foster their friendships outside of work by getting them involved in some brilliant team-building group activities.
Your team are burning out. Burnout is terrible for productivity and performance, so you need to give the team regular opportunities to let off steam. We don’t know about you, but shooting arrows at a target and shooting at virtual pigeons sounds like a pretty excellent relaxation exercise to us.
If you want your group activities to be a success, there are some guidelines you should try to stick to as much as possible.
DON’T: Pick a boring venue.
If you’re considering holding group activities in your office, you need to stop right there. No one is going to enjoy that! Think outside the box a little bit.
DO: Take the team somewhere exciting.
At Wild On Waiheke, your team can spend the day soaking up the sunshine enjoying great food, plenty of drinks, and team building activities that will really get them going.
DON’T: Forget to make the activities inclusive.
When you’re planning your group activities, make sure you consider the needs of all your team members and plan activities that everyone can enjoy. If you need advice on how to plan an inclusive day, give us a call, and we can tailor our package to make sure everyone has a blast.
DO: Have some variety.
One ice breaker does not a team-building day make! Spice it up with a range of activities that everyone will love gumboot throwing, archery, chess, volleyball; make the day jam-packed and full of fun.
DON’T: Call it quits after one team-building event.
If you’re really dedicated to improving workplace culture and fostering relationships in your team, you’re going to need to plan regular team-building events. We’re big advocates for every other month events, but annual or bi-annual team-building days have also been shown to be effective in boosting morale.
DO: Take plenty of photos and videos.
