The holiday season tends to be when we do our best to pay it forward, which can take many different forms as we reach out into the community hoping to make a difference.

Corporate holiday parties tend to belong to two different camps. For many companies, holiday parties are a fun way to cap the year and coax out the enthusiasm of employees, marking a highlight of the calendar that everyone looks forward to. For others, holiday parties are more of a hassle than anything else, which tends to lead to polite excuses and poor turnout. With the right offsite corporate rental location and a little creativity, however, any company can put together a great holiday party that builds team morale while letting employees ditch the rigidity of the office setting. Here are 10 activity ideas that can drum up some excitement and turn the holiday party ritual into a favorite time of the year for employees.
Putting together the right holiday party can send a message that will be heard loud and clear, making it a good opportunity to showcase how important the work-play balance is to your company. A holiday party can also be a great way to promote environmentally sound habits that can have a trickle-down effect to employees. With off-site rental locations increasingly focusing on going eco-friendly, it has never been easier to go green while making plans for a memorable holiday party. Here is a guide to a fun and environmentally conscious holiday retreat that will have employees counting down the days until next year.

On the Road to Rio, the US Women’s Rugby team understands more than anyone the importance of building a healthy team, both mentally and physically. The women leave for Rio de Janeiro in the coming weeks to compete in the 2016 Olympics and will be the first women’s rugby team to ever take the field for the United States on this platform. The team, that resides just south of San Diego in Chula Vista, made a trip up to The Point to get “out of office” and mix-up their daily training regimen with a half day of team building activities.
At The Point we believe in the sustainable procurement of materials from local environments to reduce carbon waste, unnecessary consumption of trees, and help stimulate our local economy. A perfect example of this is the story of how one of the trees compromised in the great California Firestorm of 2003 is now on display as an 18 foot raw edge cedar conference room table.
