We love doing teamuildings for our corporate clients because this is how we get to meet our end public and stakeholders. We get to know what every employee prefers, how is the team atmosphere, what are their preferences and, after a couple of days of teambuilding, often the organiser or facilitator becomes part of the team.
Early may we did our preffered teambuilding program, in the green heart of Romania, in Covasna county. We combined all our knowledge and local connections to make a wonderful event, with a winning mix of local food tasting and preparing, a show with traditional dances done by children in a local folkloric group, sports activities and tasting local sweets.
We included team activities, sightseeing, actually getting to know the area and local people more than just hotel activities, party and games.
Every day we left a couple of hours free for pool and spa area and the participants were delighted that we were so flexible with the schedule and allow them to relax.
The accommodation was provided at Balvanyos Resort, a wonderful place in the heart of the mountains, near St. Ana volcanic lake, with access to Grand Santerra SPA, an award winning spa.
Apart from discovering this beautiful area of Romania and having a handful of sports, adrenaline as well as traditional activities, we also made the connection of each activity with the company‘s 7 key behaviours.
The first day started with a short introduction in Hungarian cuisine, discovering how to cook some Hungarian dishes. The group was divided into teams and had to cook their own ‘goulash‘ under the supervision of a chef. The setting was wonderful, in a green courtyard, with many local drinks and snacks, seeing how traditional bread is made and tasting Hungarian cheese donuts. The program ended with an emotional folklore dance moment. The end of the day brought a camp fire and live folk music, with everyone singing and having fun.
The second day was dedicated to the sports activities, trying the stand up paddle and mountain downhill with karts, Mountainskyver and Mountain Roller in the hills nearby St Ana volcanic lake. And yes, it was adrenaline for sure, no mock up J The scenery was fantastic and most of the participants said that is was the best activity ever.
On the last day, before heading home, they attended a Kurtos Kalacs workshop, where they prepared and tasted the traditional Hungarian desert.
