TEAMBUILDING in the time of COVID-19
Pampanga Clark Freeport Resort confronts difficulties and potential danger in times COVID-19 to offer the best environment for companies in Manila and Pampanga to holding their postponed teambuilding and company outings this year. What is it that makes Clearwater Resort a better choice of venue for companies to hold their teambuilding events? The answer is space, large outdoor areas that naturally lend itself to social distancing while making it difficult if not possible for virus to transmit easily. Even then, this resort in Pampanga is not taking anything for granted when it comes to fighting COVID-19.
Sooner or later, the inborn resilience of mankind will overcome the threats and hurdles thrown at it relentlessly by COVID-19 and fight its way back to normalcy. But it is widely expected that the way of life after COVID-19 will be a little different than how it was before 2019 came to a painful close. The threat of COVID-19 is expected to stay in our minds for a very long time, possibly forever even. Teambuilding facilitators and corporate event organizers in Pampanga and Manila are expected to update their venue selection criteria. On the top of teambuilding organizers’ priority list will be protection against COVID-19. Recommendations for protection against the spread of COVID-19 are well documented and publicized. The challenge that teambuilding facilitators and event organizers face now is how to comply with restrictions and still achieve a reasonable level of effectiveness with their corporate and social events.
PROTECTION AGAINST COVID-19 Prevention against spread of COVID-19 centers around a few crucial factors, namely space, ventilation and disinfecting. Wearing of masks and frequent hand sanitization have become a way of life already in the Philippines. What event organizers have to do is to ensure that the teambuilding venue offers enough space to avoid clustering of participants, or worse packed into a confined space. Outdoor space provides not only opportunities for ample distancing but also present an environment that is unsuitable for virus to survive. And even if ideal distancing is impractical or impossible for certain teambuilding activities, natural elements found in outdoor venues help to curb virus spread. Sharing of ventilation system has proven to be an open invitation for COVID-19 to spread aggressively. Most event organizers avoid indoor facilities not only for conferences, meetings and seminars, but also for accommodation that share central air conditioning and ventilation system. Some hotels are already looking into ways on how to avoid spread of the virus inside their centralized ventilation system.
