Wiroon & Gwyness Hold Company Outing in Nakornnayok

Company culture is one of the most important aspects of any organization, especially when it comes to its employees. The atmosphere of the workplace can positively or negatively affect a worker’s performance. If managers and supervisors are approachable, make employees feel valuable and like they belong, workers will be happier in the office.

Recently, W&G management and staff held a company outing in Kanjanaburi, Thailand to promote cooperation and a nice working environment for the organization.

The purpose of the outing was so the staff could feel comfortable. Sometimes people can feel uptight in the office, especially while trying to uphold the professionalism standard. Gathering outside of the office, especially in a fun, casual setting, can help workers feel more comfortable and relaxed.

Also, juggling meetings, clients, hectic schedules and projects on a daily basis can create a lot of tension. Company outings provide an outlet to get away from all the busyness a typical work day can bring allowing employees to unwind and relieve their stress.

For learning, these outings aren’t just for fun and relaxation, but they give workers the opportunity to learn new things about other employees. Although you may see a colleague at work every day, often times, there’s a difference between an individual’s at-work self and outside-work self. The outing may be work related, but you will be surprised at how much you can learn about someone when you put him or her in a new setting.

The outing was also a good change for a change of scenery. You see the office every day and sometimes that can become boring. A change of scenery every now and then can be good. New environments can bring new attitudes. Perhaps a worker was having a stressful week in the office, yet the company outing on Friday at a local restaurant helped change his or her mood. Atmosphere (and ambiance) makes a world of difference.

The main purpose of the team outing is the team. How do we help strengthen our team? How can we make this team better? W&G outings, especially ones with team-building activities, help to unify a group, which can ultimately make it more cohesive and function better in the company. Better functioning teams and departments make for a more productive company overall.
