With 2018 just around the corner, many upper-level managers are beginning to plan for the next year. Having a strategy planning session away from the office can bring many benefits to both the upper-level management teams, and the employees themselves.
Benefits of Team Building in Berkshire
Team building activities, held away from the office, can be very beneficial for employees. Through participation in the various fun activities, employees and team members can build trust in each other and themselves, and open up new lines of communication. With increased levels of communication, team members are better able to mitigate conflicts that arise throughout the regular course of the work week. Additionally, more communication brings about more collaboration. All of these benefits aggregate to raise engagement levels of team members.

Whether you’re planning a team building day for a small management team, or a corporate strategy meeting, Wickham House is the perfect venue. The views alone will inspire any team as you will be surrounded by mature cedar trees, gorgeous landscapes, beautiful architecture, and charming gardens. You have the option of holding your event in our many different buildings on the estate. You can rest assured that your space will be comfortable and properly suited to your needs.

Holding your team building event in Berkshire gives you the opportunity to step out of the city and into the country. With so many options on the estate, small teams have found two of our locations to be the most popular for corporate events in Berkshire.
Our Barn is stunning, complete with an oak frame, professional kitchen, fire place, and leather sofas. Here you can hold a relaxed meeting in the parlor area, or have a more formal seating arrangement set up for you. The Barn is equipped with a state-of-the-art audio/visual system, allowing an old-world ambiance to have modern-day amenities.
The Pavilion is a serene space that can comfortably hold meetings of up to 10 people. Overlooking the garden, the Pavilion is one of the most peaceful locations on the estate. This location is ideal for discussing sensitive topics, or changing pace from the hectic and stressful pace of the normal work week.
Fun for the Whole Team
A day away from the office should include at least one fun activity! Fun activities, that are not linked to day-to-day office tasks, give employees and team members an opportunity to explore different leadership and team roles, as well as learn something new together! Should you require assistance in planning a fun group activity, Wickham House partners with team building activity specialists to put together the perfect activity for your management team away day. With MACH Management, you can opt to hold an invigorating yoga session, or a peaceful meditation workshop. If your team loves to eat and is up for the challenge, L’Atelier des Chefs offers cooking lessons and ‘chef challenges’. The Blue Hat Group has many options to choose from and ensures the perfect activity to recharge your team members.
Wickham House is the ideal corporate venue for small management team away days. By combining the high quality amenities expected of superb corporate venues with serene and picturesque views, our locations will give your team all it needs to build strategies for the future, or to build more cohesive teams.
