After all the stress that usually comes with working up until the New Year and Christmas break, it's great having the time off to unwind and cool down. If you're managing an office or a small company, getting everyone back into it again after the break is over can be a bit of a challenge.

That slightly daunting feeling of having to go back to work and starting it all again begins to grow just days into a vacation - especially as a new year begins. Help ease your employees into it and get the year off to a great start by doing something a little bit different.

Start 2012 the Right Way

Most companies like to get the year started by hosting a meeting or conference with a focus on plans and corporate direction. Instead of using the break room or a local hall, why not set the tone by booking a conference package in Rotorua?

A Fresh and Exciting New Year

Sometimes a little change of pace and scenery is all you need to breathe new energy into your team. With gorgeous views and plenty of experienced venues to support the tourism industry in the city, there isn't anywhere better to kick things off with a bang than in the North Island town of Rotorua.

Book a conference room with one of the hotels in Rotorua and let them take care of everything from lunch catering to seating and all the basics that you need for presentations. They'll be able to sort out your accommodation and some even offer full packages that include team building activities around the town for a bit of out-of-the-office fun while you're there. There are many great local attractions to visit such as: Agroventures, the Arikikapakapa Golf Course and the Rainbow Springs Kiwi Wildlife Park. You can find a full list of local tour operators at the Rotorua Tourism Centre on Fenton Street.

Grow Your Team

Make use of time away with your team to grow a little closer to them and develop new relationships. Companies like Action NZ and Team Building New Zealand work to organise and tailor the right team activities for any group. With its focus on the outdoors, Rotorua is a great place to tackle some of these challenges.

Whether you're after something relaxed like a group treasure hunt or orienteering challenge or a challenge a little more intense like raft building or a run through a basic military training course, you'll find what you're after. Talk to your accommodation option about the packages they offer or for some ideas on where to go.

Break Out of the Mould

While other companies start the year just like any other week, your team will be talking about their first 2012 conference for months. Escaping the office and doing something a little different is sometimes all you need to get staff excited and ready to take on new challenges.
