Why Summer Is the Best Time for Corporate Events

Is summer really the most anticipated season of the year? Maybe. Maybe not. In the second week of summer, one harassed mother tweeted, “It used to be called summer break until my kids got hold of it. Now it’s just summer broken.” If you’re a boss, summer may not be your favorite time either. Many businesses experience a summer slowdown and employees go through a summer slump—probably worried about the kids at home breaking stuff. Deals slow, frustrations rise, tempers flare, motivation lags, all of which makes summer the perfect time for a fun team building event. The perfect corporate group event in Georgia is one that revitalizes and unites employees, that builds relationships, and that makes everyone feel they’re part of the team.

That’s why a getaway to Callaway Resort & Gardens should be part of your company’s plans. Convenient to Atlanta with beautiful natural scenery and world-class amenities, they have meeting spaces that are among the best corporate event venues in the Atlanta area. You’ll find ballrooms, meeting rooms, and beautiful outdoor spaces, including scenic lakeside settings, plus comfortable lodging options for all group sizes and budgets. They also have a professional staff with expertise in event planning who will consider the unique needs of your group and work to exceed expectations.

The intent of team building activities is to refine skills, teach a variety of lessons, and foster morale. At Callaway Resort & Gardens you can do all of that while taking in the inspiration of 2,500 acres of natural beauty.

Robin Lake Beach

Robin Lake Beach, with its warm sun, white sand, cool water, and blue skies, is a place you can make a splash with beach activities. You team will enjoy water skiing, tubing, and fun at Aqua Island. During the summer, there are Friday and Saturday movies on the beach and Saturday night fireworks.

Why You Need Team Building

Socializing with colleagues translates into improved communications, higher morale, and better productivity in the office. It helps team members work together better to solve issues. Plus, people feel less intimidated about letting their imagination go when they’re around people they’re comfortable with, so successful team building also contributes to a more creative workplace.
