Can't sing Sabre's praises highly enough, I work for a national grocery retailer, after joining I enquired via my local HR manager the policy for reservists and additional leave for training Annual camp etc.
Having then been told that the policy only went as far as supporting mobilised ops. I simply sucked it up and used almost all my leave to attend camps and courses and weekend Ex's.
Two years down the line I used Sabre to query the 'Policy' which quickly went up to Sabre London and over to my own Co HR headshed. Cue one local HR manager having to eat a large slice of humble pie and I now have 2 weeks extra (unpaid) leave Result one happy PP and Mrs PP now has the dubious pleasure of my company again on family holidays.Useful Korean Phrases No 254

If you can sell the team building element to them, then they might be more amenable, but if they view the TA as two weeks on the piss, then they're likely to be less enthusiastic. And the current economic environment will also have an impact, if your colleagues aren't asking for time off in addition to their normal annual leave.
For policy, as others have said, best starting point is SaBRE because your firm may be one of those that signs up to SaBRE ideas and then forgets to tell HR!
