Employee engagement in San Francisco

Whether you are a thrill-seeker or a homebody, you know that feeling of “UMPH” when you engage in your favorite activities. You are motivated, energized… you LOVE what you are doing and you just want to do more of it. But, when was the last time you were so full of that kind of energy at work, you felt you would burst? Never?

Don’t stress… you’re not alone. In fact, we are willing to bet that your employees probably feel the same way, because there is no “employee engagement,” and your business is not taking advantage of the unique San Francisco vibe we live and breathe.

Perhaps, that is why your employees would rather be anywhere else while you are left holding the bag of “blahhh” and demotivation.

OF course, YOU have the power to turn those frowns upside-down. You have the creative genius inside of you to get your employees engaged and act like work is just another word for play! You just have to find the right tools, the right team building, and the right motivation for employee engagement. You need to be a great boss or manager who understands the crazy vibe of a San Francisco “grown up.” You need to have the desire and willingness to GET funky and an understanding that it is the EXPERIENCE that really fires people up. Not speeches and lectures.

People who politely listen to motivational speakers are probably just daydreaming about what they really want to be DOING. That’s the “motivational experience” they will remember. There is no “UMPH” there, no reason to get up and get a little crazy at work… so why not change that vibe, turning it into employee engagement… one experience after another?

Experiential team building is (of course!) the best solution for employee engagement in the San Francisco wilderness. We like to be different ‘round these parts and we love our creative flair. We have a reputation to uphold, because we ARE San Francisco, seeking thrills and refining our energy at work and at play by doing some crazy things. Your team building shouldn’t be any different… but, it should definitely be a different team building experience.
