How Much Does a Team Building Workshop Cost?
Most smart companies understand that high performance teamwork is vital for their success. They also understand that happy people with the right mindsets matter; that leadership and culture have huge impacts in workplace performance, productivity and profitability.
Success for any company comes down to how well the team performs together. Team building is important to build a connected, creative, collaborative, cohesive, functional, motivated and happy… high performance workplace team.
Team building events cost varies dependent on a number of factors including the type of team development program, group size and quality of venue.
The final cost for a team building day can range anywhere from R6000 to R60,000. It all depends upon a variety of important factors – like fun or formal.
Essentially the higher your budget the more choice you have and the better the quality of the facilitation, and debriefing process. The number of people in your group also impacts costs. The cheaper group events are more fun oriented.
You will find that the benefits and outcomes of investing in a Consciously Constructive high performance workplace program will far exceed the financial cost of delivery.
Paintball is NOT REAL TEAM BUILDING!
Fun Team Building companies offer Paintball, Firewalking, or Go-Karting as “teambuilding” but that turns out to be light Bonding, and not a true TEAM Building event.
Those fun days can be cheap… but have someone skilled to facilitate your debriefing, since you risk increasing conflicts and competition. I have seen a team completely break down due to the “Legal and FUN” intentional hurting of some people in a paint ball war!!
These cheap and extreme competition group event do more harm than truly building trust, connection, collaboration, communication and commitment.
After all you are spending money to generate some kind of positive value and change, and hopefully if you are smart, some measurable return on your time and money investment.
Most Costly Workplace & Team Building Problems

What are your Team and Workplace Dysfunctions Costing You?
Think for a moment, what are these team dysfunctions actually costing the people, the team, the organisation? If you calculate all the costs, you will come to a number in the tens of THOUSANDS or even Millions!
So maybe the right question should be – How much will this HPO team Building SAVE?
Many companies try to “save” money by using in house resources. Here’s the challenge – If you use you internal staff, are they at the WORLD-CLASS level of performance, facilitation, expertise … The hard reality is you get what you pay for… and seldom more…
With inhouse staff you have, engagement challenges, Personal challenges, workplace politics, conflicts, culture contamination, limited skills/ expertise, and passion/commitment to ensure results is lower. If they could have done it…fix the problems, it would already be fixed.
Whereas with a professional external service provider you have a much wider range of exposure, experience, and expertise. An external provider is neutral within the politics and tribes of your organisation.
And an external eye often sees stuff that internal people live with every day, and so overlook it. An external team comes with higher levels of quality, focus, commitment, passion and performance

REAL High Performance Team Development is an INCREDIBLE INVESTMENT
If our corporate and company High Performance Team Building interventions and workshops deliver the above benefits… it’s clear that the VALUE gained from this process is in the tens to hundreds of thousands.
So the small cost of team building that delivers real value, is a tiny price to pay. – Actually INVEST. This is only valid if you do REAL team development, and not just some fun group games, that deliver very little sustainable value.
Make your decisions around VALUE… not just the cost. The behaviour and discussions and alignment and then the cost can be related to the expected ROI.
Doing something that doesn’t change anything is a pure lost cost, no matter how low the cost! Cutting corners and choosing the cheapest option does not go unnoticed. Is cheap and uninspiring in line with your brand?
Hiring the best – shows your staff they are Appreciated, and valuable!
Hiring the best service provider that you can, sends many valuable signals and lessons to the troops. Not least of which is…that they are worth it, and that the company also believes and values… quality… for internal customers, as well…and doesn’t just insist that they deliver quality for the company’s operations.
So what’s the cost of Team building? If you choose fun games, your value is low and the cost is medium.
But choosing our High Performance Team Intervention, your VALUE is HUGE, and the cost is actually an investment that delivers exceptional returns on a far longer basis.
