Attapulgus, Georgia – September 6, 2016 – Off-site Teambuilding is strategy commonly used by businesses and corporations to improve their business productivity and employee’s performance. SouthWind Plantation has just the right location, activities and facility that will insure you achieve both.
On August 1, SouthWind Plantation opened the doors to its new multi-purpose facility, Smith Station. Smith Station was created and designed to provide an additional private location for the corporate groups that visit the plantation. The addition of the facility can provide businesses with an all-inclusive package for their off-site team building. Smith Station is an 11,000 square foot facility and contains a Boardroom, Great Room, Spa, Observatory and Outdoor Pavilion.
Studies have proven your colleagues will think more creatively and be more open minded to new ideas and strategies off-sight. Smith Station offers just the right environment for off-sight success.
To help nurture and create effective team building, SouthWind offers a wide variety of activities. Activities such as fishing, a state-of-the-art five-stand clay range, horseback riding, hunting in season, professional shooting instruction, and tours of local farm lands. All activities are designed to clear the mind, replenish the soul and bring your group closer together. That’s what Teambuilding is all about. According to Forbes Magazine, “The most successful, memorable team-building events are ones that don’t feel like a day at the office. Activities that overtly aim to draw in leadership lessons or practical takeaways are less powerful. Spending time together, sharing an experience or working towards a common goal allows bonding to happen more organically and far more effectively.”
After a full day of team building activities and meetings, team members can revive in SouthWind’s luxury Spa retreat. Rejuvenate in a state-of-the-art Western Red Cedar Sauna. The Spa also includes a steam shower equipped with comforting rain shower heads, chromatic lighting, aromatherapy and Bluetooth capabilities transforming it into a sensory spa. Team members can even arrange a relaxing private massage from a licensed masseuse at the Spa by appointment. A successful retreat always leaves attendees feeling energized and ready to return to work.
Teambuilding should bring people out of their shells and invite them to engage with each other. Nothing will encourage that more than SouthWind’s Observatory. The Observatory overlooks a 20-acre pond with a panoramic view of the SouthWind plantation. It’s a great place to cap off an evening with an after dinner cocktail in front of a roaring fire in the stack stone fireplace. This multi-purpose room has tables for dining, 2 comfortable seating areas, a computer desk and two flat screen televisions. It’s the perfect place for casual conversation, a feeling that will be taken back to the workplace.
