Teambuilding is the number one priority for many leadership teams in Phoenix. A department that communicates well and has a sense of camaraderie is more likely to develop effective plans and produce happy customers than a team that has not developed their interpersonal skills. Arizona Outdoor Fun’s expert team creates an itinerary of things to do in the Phoenix desert that foster innovation, encourage employees to think creatively, and boost healthy competition. After all, in the office, competition increases productivity. During teambuilding events, competition is just plain fun!

With so many companies in Arizona offering teambuilding activities, it is important to understand your employees and choose an activity that highlights everyone’s strengths.

How to choose the best teambuilding company for your team:

  • Know your team! Every team is comprised of introverts, extroverts and people who fall somewhere in between the two categories. Know your department’s preferences and choose an activity that highlights everyone’s strengths.
  • Number of people. Some companies have restrictions on the size of group permitted at any one time while others, like Arizona Outdoor Fun, can accommodate all group sizes. With one of the largest fleets of ATV and UTV rentals in Phoenix, as well as a large selection of equipment and an expertly trained staff, your group is in good hands.
  • Honesty. Is the company you’re communicating with realistic about what your team can expect from the teambuilding experience or are they promising the moon? Make sure the company you choose listens to your needs and offers solutions instead of making promises they can’t keep.
  • The take-away. What can employees expect to take from their teambuilding adventure? Is there an action plan or a specific set of communication tools they can apply immediately to an office environment?
  • Credentials. Any company you choose should be accredited by the Better Business Bureau. Review online ratings and try to get a feel for the company and the quality of service they have provided in the past. Arizona Outdoor Fun, for example, has an A+ rating from the BBB and won TripAdvisor’s prestigious Certificate of Excellence in 2015. Combined with rave reviews from past customers, it’s easy to see why Arizona Outdoor Fun’s activities continue to be a favorite for Phoenix residents.

Arizona Outdoor Fun is the first choice for many companies in Phoenix for a number of reasons. We offer experienced guides to both create and manage your group events for a flawless experience from start to finish. All materials, equipment and provisions are provided. Your group may even customize their own event on land, water or both! With an unlimited number of options to choose from, your team is sure to be satisfied with their teambuilding adventure. Call (602) 400-2445 today to learn more about our services and create your own custom group event.
