Team Building Ideas That Your Employees Will Actually Like
Team Building exercises encourage meaningful connections among your employees while building a social network within your company. The goal of team building is overall better communication and working well together, and with the right attitude and activities, team building can be fun! Improve your office dynamic by introducing your team to activities that exemplify the power of working as a team with ideas that they will actually like to do.
TEAM BREAKFAST FRIDAYS.
Choose a day of the week where your team gets together for breakfast at the office. Take turns bringing in breakfast for the entire team, or each person on the team can volunteer a specific breakfast item such as coffee, tea, fruit, or pastry. Let your team decide what works best for them. Maybe your team prefers Pizza Wednesdays or Potluck Thursdays or End of Month Cookouts. Discussing weekend plans or anything not work-related while sharing a meal is a casual way to get to know each other.
TAKE A FIELD TRIP.
The possibilities are endless. The goal here is to do something together as a team outside of the office environment. Here are some ideas for starters:
- Wildlife Refuge
- Volunteer at a Food Pantry or Clean up a Beach
- Day Cruise
ESCAPE ROOM EXPERIENCE.
This is a trendy team building activity that is gaining momentum because this team-building exercise encourages communication, critical thinking and collaborative problem-solving in an escape room venue. Team members are locked in a themed room and given a set time to figure out how to escape by solving riddles, puzzles and discovering various clues. Larger groups of employees can be split up into different teams, and the team with the best escape time wins.
SPORTS AND FITNESS.
A favorite and healthy way to team build involves exercise and competitive sports such as:
- Walking Groups
- Group Runs or Marathon Training
- Ninja Training
Ninja Training is a unique concept to introduce to your team. You can implement various competitive exercises and obstacle courses that test endurance and team-building skills.
