Building a positive company culture is crucial for the success and sustainability of any organisation. A positive company culture fosters employee engagement, productivity, and satisfaction, which ultimately leads to better business outcomes. Here are some key steps to building and maintaining a positive company culture:

  1. Define Core Values: Clearly articulate the core values that represent the essence of your company. These values should guide decision-making, behaviour, and interactions among employees.
  2. Lead by Example: Company leaders play a significant role in shaping culture. They should embody the values they espouse and demonstrate behaviours that align with the desired culture.
  3. Communicate Openly: Foster open and transparent communication channels where employees feel comfortable sharing ideas, concerns, and feedback. Regularly communicate company goals, initiatives, and updates to keep everyone informed and engaged.
  4. Encourage Collaboration: Create opportunities for collaboration and teamwork among employees. Encourage cross-functional projects and initiatives that bring together individuals from different departments and backgrounds.
  5. Promote Work-Life Balance: Support employees in achieving a healthy work-life balance by offering flexible work arrangements, promoting time off, and discouraging overwork. Recognise and celebrate achievements, both personal and professional.
  6. Invest in Employee Development: Provide opportunities for learning and growth through training programs, skill development workshops, and mentorship initiatives. Invest in employees’ professional development to help them reach their full potential.
  7. Recognise and Reward Contributions: Acknowledge and appreciate employees’ efforts and contributions through both formal and informal recognition programs. Celebrate successes and milestTeam Building eventsones as a team to foster a sense of accomplishment and belonging.
  8. Embrace Diversity and Inclusion: Create a welcoming and inclusive environment where employees feel valued, respected, and empowered to be their authentic selves. Embrace diversity in all its forms and promote a culture of equity and belonging.
  9. Support Well-being: Prioritise employee well-being by offering resources and support for physical, mental, and emotional health. Implement wellness programs, provide access to counselling services, and promote a culture of self-care and mindfulness. One of the best ways to support employee well-being is, of course, TEAM BUILDING!
  10. Continuously Evolve and Adapt: Culture is not static; it evolves over time. Regularly assess the current state of your company culture, solicit feedback from employees, and be willing to adapt and evolve as needed to meet the changing needs and dynamics of your organisation.

By prioritising these steps, organisations can create a positive company culture that attracts top talent, fosters employee engagement and satisfaction, and ultimately drives long-term success.

At Tailored Team Building we believe we have put together some of the best team building activities & events to help promote a positive company culture.

Team running

By far our most popular team building event is the Corporate Amazing Race. Our amazing races are a great way to bring your team together in a fun & competitive way to get them out of the office. We have designed our Corporate Amazing Races for every body – you can be super fit & not so fit…..young & young at heart…..and everything in between. Our races are also fully customisable, basically we love to travel so we can host your amazing race anywhere in Australia. Of course we are currently hosting these in all major cities including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra & Gold Coast, however we have also already hosted amazing races in other places like Townsville, Roma, Nowra, Nelson Bay, Gosford, Ballarat & lots of places in between. So, where would you like to send us next?

Ok….lets get into the fun stuff….how it works;

First of all we design a personalised countdown website for you to share with your team, this will give you some important information about your day (what to wear etc) as well as the starting location for your race. We then meet your group at the start & get you into your smaller teams. We play a fun, fast paced game at the start to get all your competitive spirits flowing, we then give you your first envelope to dramatically rip open (yes bonus points for extra drama can be awarded!!!), then you are off racing. All our checkpoints are manned by our hosts & the teams will need to complete 1-2 challenges / activities on the checkpoints before moving on. 

There may also be an opportunity to roadblock another team to sabotage them or potentially win a fast forward card to give your own team an advantage! The possibilities are endless. 

We already have a wide range of different team building activities that your teams can enjoy on our checkpoints, however we are always coming up with new ideas. Plus we are also happy to work closely with you if you would like to design a customised challenge for your team. We just love team bonding & puzzles so give us an idea & we will create the perfect team building activity for you & your team. 

And of course, the all important stuff – there has to be a winner!!! We actually have two versions of our amazing races, one being the first team to cross the finish line wins, or (and most popular) the team who finishes with the most amount of points will take home the overall bragging rights. We do have little prizes to give away for the winning team & also the losing team. 

So….the only limitation is your imagination….contact us to book your next corporate amazing race.
