Why a Paint & Sip Event is the Perfect Team Building Choice!YAY! it’s almost time for your next staff team-building event! Do any of these sound familiar? Bowling, happy hour, adventure courses (complete with trust falls), outdoor games and a potluck lunch.
Those are some good activities, but for many employees, they’re more stress-inducing than anything. What about an activity that’s low-pressure, and doesn’t require athletic talents or giving up an evening to make enough potato salad for the whole office?
We give you the Pinot’s Palette Paint and Sip Team Building Experience: A perfect staff activity because it promotes positive interaction in an environment free of workplace pressures.
Creating is a Fun, Happy Activity
Painting is not competitive. Outdoor games and corporate teams working against one an another can frustrate and divide staff who are already struggling with competitiveness and interpersonal bonding. Painting is a leisurely activity that doesn’t divide your team into groups or set anyone up to be winners OR losers. Creative activities also exercise the right side of the brain, and when both left and right sides of the brain are used, true genius and intelligence can shine!
Painting Encourages Positive Bonding and Socialization!
The Pinot’s Palette environment is designed to be relaxing, encouraging and supportive. It’s a fun but low-key environment where water cooler small talk can easily turn into more meaningful conversations. For new staff, it is a wonderful opportunity to relax, sip some wine and get to know others in a more social setting.
Paint & Sip Events are Stress Free!
Many well-intentioned team building events involve physical activity, while others involve a lot of “going around the circle” and putting people on the spot to answer questions. Both of these situations can be stressful for staff who don’t excel at physical activities or don’t like to be in the spotlight. Painting is a great activity because it’s comfortable for all personality types. While some may be nervous about how good their artwork is, at Pinot’s Palette we emphasize the fact that everyone’s style is different and there are no expectations other than to relax and enjoy the process. Our studio is BYOB and sharing a bottle of wine is a great ice breaker.
Our Paint and Sip Team Building Activities Improves Problem Solving and Execution.
Creative activities form new neural pathways in the brain. Combine this effect with the stress-busting effect of painting, and your team is better prepared to find solutions to problems that previously stumped them. For example, a 2015 report from Aon Hewitt showed that companies that increase their employee engagement and team-building activities see a 3% higher revenues the following year!
Scheduling a Paint & Sip team Building Event is a Great Recruiting Tool
Painting classes are a unique way to show associates you care about their mental well-being. Showcasing photos of our team's paintings on your company’s website and social media pages is a great way to show job candidates your company values its employees and thoughtfully provides its employees with creative outings that refresh and rejuvenate! f
