The Ideal Team-Building Budget

Some managers love to save money on the department’s team-bonding activities, while others find it outrageous if the company cuts the team-building budget. Who is right, what is the cost of corporate events, and how to spend money wisely on your team? We will tell you!

Why organize team-building events?

There are many types of team-building events. You can go outside, stay in the office, play some games, drink, cook, or even work together to make your colleagues more motivated, thus boosting their effectiveness at work. 

A great bonding event can increase your employees’ soft skills, for example,

  • Communication,
  • Problem-solving,
  • Creative thinking,
  • Leading.

And also, it will

  • Increase team effectiveness,
  • Decrease employee turnover,
  • Create a healthy workplace where information flows.

But most importantly, it will decrease operating costs. Continue reading to find out how.

The costs of corporate team-building

There is a wide range of the amount of money you can spend on corporate team-building events. Hosting a conference can be extremely costly for you, while a casual social outing is cheaper, but does the job to achieve the above-mentioned benefits. 

You can choose from:

  • Free,
  • Cheap (<25 EUR/person),
  • Medium-budget (25-100 EUR/person),
  • And high-end (100+ EUR/person) offers.

According to the White Rhino, a 50 people team-bonding program can cost 2500-6000 EUR for your company. 

Of course, it’s up to you (and your colleagues) to determine what you want to do. If you have cool employees who are just fine with doing a bowling night, then you don’t have to spend that much money. Or, if your office is full of gamers, just organize a FIFA championship for almost free (you just need to take care of the booze).
