Fun and Games in the Corporate World
With the increased amounts of stress and uncertainty that employees have had to deal with in recent years, fun corporate retreats have never been more important, especially because the adoption of hybrid and remote working conditions has physically separated work teams.
Taking the time to have some fun with your team without the pressures of work is incredibly beneficial. A work retreat encourages employees to relax, have a good time and create strong interpersonal relationships that will undoubtedly benefit them at work. Company culture is easiest to build when people are together. Planning an exciting work retreat shows your employees how much you appreciate them, which will, in turn, motivate them back in the workplace.
We're seeing this trend of leaders realizing the importance of fun in-person gatherings continuing to rise. It has been undeniable in the work that we have done over the past few months, as well as in the dramatic increase in inquiries about corporate parties and team-building events that we have received for next year.
The Need for Fun Corporate Retreats
For those who have been at their jobs since before the series of lockdowns that created a new work from home culture, the idea of never meeting your team face-to-face might seem absurd. However, this was the case for many of the attendees at most of the programs that we recently facilitated. Some had only ever met their co-workers via meetings on Microsoft Teams, Google Meets or WebEx!
We know that this is no way to develop lasting work relationships, so we make in-person engagement the focal point of all the events that we facilitate. As well as giving your employees the freedom to have fun and get to know each other outside of work, we also offer opportunities to work on team building and inspiring motivation.
Our facilities guarantee you the recreational activities and casual unscheduled time that you need to do all of this. We plan fun pursuits for everybody to enjoy and allow you the freedom to properly socialize.
Start with Team Building
Planned activities are a great way to start because they encourage you to let go of any stress and give your all as a team. Our indoor karting experience is the perfect place to start, encouraging people to try something new and exciting. Friendly competition doesn't hurt either! After that, your team can head over to some of our other activities, which include an arcade, a laser tag arena and bowling lanes. It might surprise you just how important team building is in recreational activities!
Move on to Unstructured Social Time
After exerting yourself with our thrilling activities, you'll be able to relax and continue conversion over drinks and fresh food from our Grill. time. Our bread is freshly-baked all day and we also cater to different dietary requirements with our gluten-free pasta, bread and pizza dough options. We even offer vegan cheese on our pizzas too.

Above all, we want you to enjoy your time with us here at Andretti. We love seeing teams come together and have fun, away from their desks and their virtual communications. When people genuinely engage with each other, laughing, talking and sharing experiences informally, it translates into healthy working relationships.
