The crucial role of team building and wellbeing in corporate success

Women Doing Yoga

In an era where connectivity is at our fingertips, businesses find themselves endowed with a myriad of channels to foster connections among customers, suppliers and internal staff.

A recent study conducted by Brita Vivreau* underscores the significance of interpersonal connections within the workplace, with a staggering 75% of office workers expressing a heightened likelihood of remaining in their current job if they've cultivated meaningful connections with their colleagues. This insight underscores the importance for businesses to provide teams with every opportunity to establish genuine relationships and foster a sense of unity within the workplace.

Situated just an hour away from central London and set in a 400-acre country estate, Foxhills Club & Resort takes teambuilding to another level, with an extensive selection of activities to bring colleagues together, rekindle team spirit and morale – all with a focus on wellness and increased productivity. With nine flexible meeting spaces for two to 200, it is the ideal place for morning meetings and active afternoons – all with the picture-perfect backdrop of the 19th-century Manor House.

There are more than 200 weekly activities at the resort – ranging from art classes in a purpose-built studio, private golf and tennis lessons to serene yoga in the woodland Yoga Cabin and group cycling classes in the state-of-the-art spin studio – all activities that can be incorporated into an active teambuilding session to encourage teams to work together and enjoy a little light relief from their day-to-day duties.  

Sometimes the best experiences are had when teams are put outside their comfort zone and unconventional experiences can be a catalyst for team bonding. At Foxhills, the options are almost endless – with full hire of the lawns available for larger groups to take on anything from archery and Crystal Maze to Bear Grylls Survival sessions and Giant Monopoly, falconry, axe throwing and even duck herding!

The team at Foxhills takes it even further with options to arrange a beekeeping experience with the resident beekeeper; Human Bingo featuring giant scoreboards; and a Calypso Carnival Summer Party night with a real festival vibe.

In 2024, Padel and Pickleball has also been added to the roster, with Foxhills launching new sessions for the fastest growing sports in the world, allowing for a fun, fast and social experience perfect for teams wanting to add a little healthy competition to their bonding.

Foxhills truly believes that bringing colleagues together, forging strong relationships and elevating team morale not only enhances productivity, engagement and cohesiveness, but also paves the way for sustained business success.
