A new way to motivate teams
Experiences are catalysts for personal and professional development.
Out-of-the-box and engaging activities can make a difference in motivating employees and stimulating their creativity. When people join in on activities outside the office, they connect on a much deeper level. Companies with motivated team members tend to have higher staff retention levels.
LokaLocal aims to make a difference in the way people are motivated. What better way to spark their passion than by learning from a creative artist? How better to connect with one another than by finding synchronity in a choreography?
For international companies and schools, LokaLocal’s cultural workshops form an interactive, conducive environment to showcase Malaysia’s traditions and dying trades.
The team building activities focus on 5 categories such as art, culture, food, music, and wellness. Some of the activities available on LokaLocal include:
- Wau bulan (traditional kite) making
- Wayang kulit (shadow puppet) making
- Traditional Malaysian cooking class
- Traditional Malaysian dance class
- Traditional 24 Festive Drums workshop
- Intuitive art jam
- Batik canting and painting
These LokaLocal group experiences are part of the Phase One initiative, and more team building experiences are in the pipeline.
