A Sur La Table cooking class could be the perfect way to strengthen your team at work. Our corporate team-building events are perfect for bringing colleagues together to bond over a delicious, freshly made meal. It’s fun for all ages and genders and can include a menu that appeals to everyone’s dietary restrictions.

Benefits of a Team-Building Cooking Class

While there are plenty of fun outings you can enjoy with coworkers, it takes a hands-on, engaging activity to help strengthen skills like teamwork and communication. A cooking class provides a setting where those abilities can be developed in a fun and delicious way. Team members can designate skills based on their individual strengths and work together to solve problems and improve the group’s efficiency. Everyone wants the meal to taste good, so there’s built-in motivation to work toward the same goal. The social aspect is fun too, as these classes encourage good communication as well as friendships among coworkers. And because a professional chef instructor guides the way, everyone is on the same page as far as what steps to follow. It’s the perfect recipe for corporate team building!

Seasonal Celebrations with Coworkers

While corporate team-building cooking classes are always fun, they can be especially enjoyable when planned as part of a seasonal celebration. If you’re looking for a unique way to mark the holidays or reward your employees at the end of the year, partner with Sur La Table to plan team cooking classes. You can attend a cooking class for corporate coworkers in person or plan a virtual class for your next corporate event. And with a holiday-themed menu, everyone’s sure to get in the spirit. This is a unique alternative to the typical holiday party or New Year’s celebration that employees will really enjoy.
