Looking for team building ideas in Austin? I can't travel the world trying out fun group activities (unfortunately!?). But here's some ideas shared by others....
These suggestions were initially made on a social networking site in late 2010.
Because so many people search my site looking for team building ideas, I decided to compile the suggestions into a simple list.
I hope they are helpful if you're wondering what options are available for employee team building in Austin.
However, please accept these as suggestions, not recommendations ...because I've never actually been to Austin. Australia (where I live) is a long way from Texas!
On the social networking website, a person asked for ideas for
a fun, unique employee outing for
about 30 people in Austin Texas.
Many of the ideas that were recommended weren't specific to Austin:
A few places and companies were mentioned by name in response to the request for teambuilding ideas in Austin, Texas.
Because you might be interested in customer reviews, not the official websites, I've not included links.
Instead, try the Google Search tool to search for more information on any of options you're interested in.

Sometimes the hardest part in coming up with team building ideas is knowing where to start. So I hope these suggestions for a fun team building day in the Austin area are useful thought-starters.
I'd also suggest you take a look at the companies in our teambuilding directory for ideas for more structured team building.
While employee outings can be great fun, they don't always result in improvements or lasting benefits for how your team works together.
Good luck and happy team building!
