Providing a sweet break from stressful office schedules are the corporate team outings amidst luxury resorts and picturesque destinations. As much as these tours are fun, the corporate outbound activities do call for some codes of conduct. From taking a first aid kit to coming mentally geared up as a team, recognizing the pit stops on the way to not throwing garbage around, we have list important dos and don’ts of a simple corporate team outing or a corporate offsite tour.

1) Come mentally ready as a team
It is certainly a break away from the monotonous life, but do remember that this corporate team outing requires you to connect with the team members and function together as a group. The higher you are in sync with them, the superior are the chances of learning and standing out in the corporate outbound activities and also more significantly having a great time! So, come mentally ready as a team.

2) Wear comfortable clothing
The team building trainers would conduct activities that will require you to do a bit of running around and prancing about with fellow mates. To feel at ease and get better efficiency of the task assigned, it is suggested that that you wear comfortable clothes.

3) Follow the instructions of the team building trainer
The programmes of the corporate team outing are customized in advance keeping a definite agenda of building team confidence and augmenting employee skills in mind. Therefore, when the team building trainer is giving some instructions, however trivial or irrational it may seem, do listen and follow them. They only mean good.

4) Be with your office squad, inform your whereabouts
With your corporate team outing, you would generally be going to unusual places. In addition, the team building activities require the presence of all the office members. You would not want to waste time with other people looking for you.
It is wise to be with your team at all times. Tell them about your whereabouts if you wish to stroll around.

5) Carry light woollen sweater if you are going to a hill station
Most of the corporate outbound activities are conducted in an outdoor setting. If your outing is at a hill station, things might get a bit unpleasantly cold. To keep yourself warm and enjoy the programme at the same time, carry a light woolen sweater.

6) For a corporate beach outing, carry sunscreen or a cap
The sun, sand and the beach make for quite a pleasant experience. But the last thing anybody wants is to return home with an ugly sun burn which takes a longer duration to come off. Be wise; carry a sunscreen along with you. If you are one of those people who can’t take the continuous rays of the sun, carry a cap with you as well.
