Team building is considered invaluable in developing employee interpersonal and social relationships, which is instrumental in improving company performance and achieving goals. However, few companies can schedule time for entire departments to be out of the office. Fortunately, it’s not too late to squeeze in a professionally organized day of bonding and team-building exercises before the year ends. Given that November and December seems to be when workloads level off and time is made for the year-end holiday party -- why not combine the two and take it on the water? At Hornblower Cruises & Events, we call this team building with a twist!
With more than 34 years experience providing unforgettable, flawless events on the water, Hornblower Cruises & Events has some great ideas:
Salsa team building and fiesta cruise
Turn up the heat with a salsa-making competition, made more indulgent aboard a Hornblower luxury yacht. Employees will come together as they battle it out in an attempt to win the salsa champion taste test. Hornblower provides all the ingredients to create authentic salsa and the event coordination to develop additional competitions, such as logo design and sales and marketing strategies. To make it a fiesta, south-of-the-border hors d’oeuvres and margaritas can be served and the entire event will be set to the warm, balmy breezes and breathtaking views of San Diego Bay.
San Diego scavenger hunt team building cruise
There is nothing like a scavenger hunt to get employees working together as they break into teams to plan some winning strategies. For Hornblower’s “twist,” attendees cruise over to beautiful Coronado Island where they are challenged to follow clues in a lively island trek. Upon return to their luxury yacht, prizes are awarded as employees enjoy hors d'oeuvres, music and fun drinks -- making the event as relaxing as it is fun.
Sushi and karaoke team building cruise
This unique team building experience brings your team together with sushi and song. Hornblower’s professional sushi chef will show employees the art of sushi making — and our DJ will keep them singing. This unforgettable team experience gives employees the opportunity to make and eat their fill of sushi, sip sake and belt out their favorite karaoke hits, made ideal onboard a luxurious Hornblower yacht.
