How Much Do Corporate Team Building Events COST?

Or, What do Team Building Workshops Packages Cost for 1 Day or 2 Day Team Building Sessions?

Full Day Team Building Events typically cost anything from around R550 to R3,500 per person… depending upon a few important things. 

NB#1: Are you playing kiddies games or…

NB#2: Do you want some thing meaningful, valuable, FUN and beneficial, that enhances and builds a High Performance connected collaborative, conflict free, TEAM?

So, it’s the WRONG Team Building cost, or team building prices, QUESTION…

If you are serious about effective, lasting, meaningful, team building packages, best VALUE, and a fun company team building day, you must start with…a smarter question…  Is this Team Building a cost  or am I willing to make this an investment into and for us?

The Cost of Team Building events DEPENDS upon… your choice between “kiddies games” or something real, relevant, fun, and far more meaningful and valuable, to your staff and the organisation or team.  


If you are SMART…a full day team building and fun experience could work out to be ALMOST FREE!*  If…  

If you use our Revolutionary Workplace process and Team-Flow-Grow experiences to facilitate your company team event with the proven High Performance People and Teams AdaptAgility process… Your Return on Investment is outstanding. The Return is so High – it basically pays for itself with the outstanding VALUE the people receive.

Remember: Price is what you Pay. Value is what you GET!

The average cost of Corporate Team Building Events Packages ranges widely, based upon the team activities and outcomes.

It all depends upon the level of impact, quality, sustainability, meaningfulness, engagement, and value that you are looking for,

So, the COST of team building workshops actually depends on a few CRITICALLY IMPORTANT FACTORS.

Do you want to really just want light fun, play kiddies games, and have no sustainable value, nor longer term impact…. Like “Motivational Speakers?

Or do you want to actually develop a potent, high performance, resilient, positive, cohesive, and connected team and culture?

A Team session where your people thrive, connect, trust, communicate, collaborate, and create exponential impacts and results…. AND HAVE FUN in the process?

Comparison Assumptions: Lets get clear on assumptions to compare apples with apples.  Lets assume a team of 20 people for a full day session 7-8 Hours of service, facilitation, motivation, and team building process. Exclude Venue costs. Then compare:

Motivational Speaker
/Fun Entertainment.
Expensive & Low Value
COST: 20k-30k /Hour

1. Motivational Speaker
 – 60 Minutes COST

  • Value: Entertainment & Fun
  • Nothing Really Sustainable

  • Motivation may last a day or two- Maybe!

Conference: Sit and listen…Expensive and
Low Value/retention
R3,000-4,500 /Person/day

2. Conference / lectures
– Value: Fair to medium

  • Value: Consider we forget 90% within 30 days. Just sitting and listening.
  • ROI: Nothing to shout home about
  • Nice Day away from the office & Lunch. 🙂

Real Team Building:
Mind-Grow & Team-Flow.
BEST Value & Investment. Outstanding ROI!

3. REVOLUTIONARY WORKPLACE High Performance Teams Process
Full Day 7 to 8 Hours – Around R25k-R35k
Value: Life-Shifting and Life-Giving.

  • Unbeatable Value; Personal, Team & Biz!
  • Many medium and Long Term Benefits
  • Some clients almost 4x Annual Revenue!
  • ROI’s of between 30x to 100x!
  • Optimise People, Team, Leader & Culture 

*Without a Doubt the REVOLUTIONARY WORKPLACE High Performance Teams Development System offers UNBEATABLE Value, Results, and ROI’s

Most smart companies understand that high performance teamwork, executive team buildings, or company team building days, and resilient, agile positive, happy mindsets, are vital for their ongoing success.

They also understand that:

  • happy people with the right Growth-O[tomised mindsets and #Adaptagility matter;
  • leadership and culture have huge impacts in workplace performance, productivity, and profitability
  • that corporate team building workshops costs are an investment.

Success for any company comes down to how well the team performs together. Formal Team building is important to build a connected, creative, collaborative, cohesive, functional, motivated, and happy… high performance workplace team that thrives in tough times and delivers outstanding results. 

Staff team building events, and activities, costs vary dependent on a number of factors. These include the type of team development program, group size, duration, depth of facilitation, facilitation expertise, and quality of venue. 

So what is the cost of team building training…how much does corporate team building cost on average, or per person?  it Depends on how smart you are!


The prices for corporate office team building or team bonding days can range anywhere from R6000 to R60,000.  It could workout to be almost FREE!

Company Team building prices could almost be free*?  How…? 

Yip  – if you turn your team building workshops into an INVESTMENT into fully developing your People, Teams, Leadership and Culture …an intelligent, proven optimisation process.

How about the possibility that your management team building events’ impacts and results are so good that your Return on Investment is more than 20x to 100x the event cost? 

Eg One client invested R85k for a full High Performance teams weekend PROCESS, and boosted their annual business from R200 Million to almost R800 Million revenue! A Good deal? You bet!

It all depends upon a variety of important factors – like Fun or Formal. Frivolous or Focused. High Performance or Happy Hopefulls.

Essentially the higher your budget the more choice you have, and the better the quality and results of the facilitation, and debriefing process.

The number of people in your group also impacts costs. The cheaper group events are more fun oriented, with lower value, impact and sustainability.

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.

Fooseball, and Paintball are NOT REAL TEAM BUILDING!

Fun Team Building companies offer paintball, fooseball, boere sports, firewalking (Dangerous!!), or Go-Karting as “teambuilding”.

But that turns out to be light team entertainment, with limited team bonding, and not a true corporate TEAM Building event.

Definitely not a sustainable, long-term, high performance company team development process.

So what is the cost of team building training?…how much does corporate team building cost on average, or per person?

Those fun team activity days can be cheap team buildinbg events…BUT

…you need to have someone expertly skilled to facilitate your front-loading, facilitation, and debriefing, since you risk increasing conflicts and competition contamination mindsets.   

I have seen many a team completely break down due to the “Legal and FUN” intentional hurting, of some people in a paint ball war or highly competitive foosball game!

These cheap and extreme competition group events often do more harm than truly building trust, connection, collaboration, communication, care, and commitment.

After all, you are spending money to generate some kind of positive value and improvement / positive change.

And hopefully, if you are smart in choosing the team building packages, some measurable return on your time and money investment.

Most Costly Workplace & Team Building Problems

  • Workplace and Team Conflicts
  • Dis engaged Staff
  • De energised Employees
  • Unfocussed Team Members
  • Low Trust / No trust
  • Apathy and Presenteeism
  • Low productivity 
  • Silo’s and withholding of Information
  • Negative Organisational Culture
  • Incompetent Management/Leadership
  • Toxic Workplace Politics and tribes

What Are Your Team and Workplace Dysfunctions Costing You? At very least 10% of monthly salary bill!

Think for a moment, what are these team and people 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! 

Calculate roughly 10% to 12% of your monthly salary bill x 12… That is what you a typically losing from conflicts, disengagement and demotivation, annually, right now.

The question is…How much will a HPO Team Building process save us or make for us?

Many companies try to skimp or “save” money to reduce team building prices, by using in-house resources – Big Team Building Mistakes. Here’s YOUR challenge –

1. 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 in-house staff you have, engagement challenges, personal challenges, workplace politics, conflicts, culture contamination, limited skills/ expertise, and passion/commitment, to ensure results is lower.

2. If they could have done it…ie fix the problems, it would already be fixed!

With a professional external team building service provider or expert team building coach, 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, experiences, expertise, and performance

So does company team building work? Do team building activities work and impacts last?

It depends upon whether you use a professional Team Building service provider or a cheaper fun inhouse team building services option.

REAL High Performance Team Development is an INVESTMENT in your People Performance

If our corporate and company High Performance Team Building interventions and workshops deliver the above benefits… i

t’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 team building package does not go unnoticed. Is cheap and uninspiring in line with your brand and desired outcomes?

Hiring the best – shows your staff they are Important, Appreciated, and Valuable!

Hiring the best performance optimisation facilitators and service provider that you can, sends many valuable signals and lessons to your people. Not least of which is…that they are worth it, and that the company also believes and values… quality… for internal customers, as well… 

It doesn’t just insist that they deliver quality for the company’s operations. 

So what’s the cost of Corporate Team building events activities? If you choose fun group games, your value gained is low, and the cost is medium. 

But choosing our High Performance Workplace Teams Intervention, your VALUE is HUGE, and the cost is actually an investment that delivers exceptional returns, on many levels, on a far longer basis.
