Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) October 9, 2009
Explore Arizona Tours has noticed a recent increase in the interest from Arizona based companies looking for exciting day trips/tours that they can use as team building exercises. These same companies previously tended to require corporate teams and sales professionals to attend out of state team building exercises held seminar style at posh resorts.
Experts have long indicated that group activities out of the office create a camaraderie amongst employees and corporate teams that increases their productivity and loyalty to the company. But when budgets are cut this type of "extra" is often seen as superlative. Smart companies are looking towards alternate plans that will still provide the same benefits to the company and its employees without requiring a hefty cut of the budget.
Tyson Bailey of Explore Arizona Tours said, "We've had nothing but positive responses from our company outings. Arizona State has plenty of exciting venues that are more than appropriate for a large group. We've had corporate tours planned as overnighters, 3 day trips and quick and easy day trips. I think a lot of companies are looking to shake things up a bit with the turns the economy has taken in the last year. It gives the employees something new and exciting and it gives the employers a break from the big expense from hosting a huge shin dig at a fancy hotel."
Studies show that this type of team building exercise/event scheduled regularly increases team cohesiveness, improves communication skills, develops trust and loyalty within the company, and leaves employees with a more pleasant perception of their employer.
Explore Arizona Tours offers full service tours throughout Arizona for large or small groups. The most popular are Phoenix tours, Sedona tours, and Grand Canyon tours. Tours range from hiking to off roading to fishing and take place in several different regions throughout the state.
