Build Your Corporate Team Morale in the City of Angels

Jul 2, 2008
Studies and research have shown that the higher an employee's moral, the harder they'll work for their company and the better they'll treat the company's clients. In a very real way, the satisfaction of your employees has a correlation to the satisfaction of your clients, not to mention their level of productivity.

Thus, one way to ensure that productivity stays up and clients are treated well is to maintain a high level of employee satisfaction. A trip to Los Angeles for some team building might be just the cure for employees that are losing hope or in order to maintain high morale.

In a big corporation -- or even a small one -- it's easy for an employee to feel lost in the mix. If an employee doesn't feel like a valued member of the team, that management is so far above as to be unapproachable, then an employee can quickly come to feel as if their contributions to the company overall aren't appreciated.

While an employee's individual contributions might not be widely felt or have a direct effect on the bottom line, poor work from a dissatisfied employee will certainly have a negative impact as they bring others down and affect morale of an entire team. Furthermore, if one employee feels undervalued, it's likely that others feel the same way.

So why choose Los Angeles for your corporate team building destination? Let's start with the fact that the opportunities are virtually endless in a big city on the coast. As the second largest city in the nation, you'd be hard pressed to not find something to do.

Let's start with Hollywood shall we? Often mistaken as an independent city, Hollywood is actually a district of Los Angeles, most famous for the many movie studios located there. It's due to this fact that many Hollywood movies take place in or around Los Angeles.

Hollywood alone makes Los Angeles a great place to conduct a movie-landmarks scavenger hunt where teams are required to find famous movie landmarks from specific movies.

Other attractions include:

- Seven major league sports teams of basketball, American football, soccer, baseball, lacrosse, and ice hockey. Several more professional teams are located nearby.
- Los Angeles is home to several major theme parks, which include Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Pacific Park.
- World famous beaches include Malibu Beach, Laguna Beach, Hermosa Beach, just to name a few.
- Shopping areas such as Rodeo Drive, Downtown Disney, Hollywood and Highland among many others.

That's just a small sampling of what's available to give you a head start on planning a corporate Los Angeles team building trip.
