Corporate team building events are the perfect way to get everyone together, bond, and alleviate some stress from the daily grind. As more companies opt for remote work, there is a growing need to get the whole team together on a semi-consistent basis. Whether you’re looking for a space to throw a summer picnic or plan a day of indoor team-building activities, Historic Acres of Hersey offers event space that can accommodate groups of all sizes.
What is the Purpose of Team Building Activities for Work?
Team building events are meant to create strong communication and collaboration between team members and offer a time for bonding outside of work, which is increasingly important in today’s virtual workplace. Games and activities for corporate groups are fun and engaging while helping coworkers better understand each other and improving relationships in and out of the office.
It’s easy to get distracted by the day-to-day tasks at work, especially during busy seasons and stressful moments. Team building activities build morale, encourage trust, improve mental health, boost creativity, and increase productivity.
If you need some inspiration to help plan team-building activities for corporate events, consider these fun games to encourage problem-solving and team bonding.
Team Building Problem Solving Activities
Put together team-building activities like a scavenger hunt, Jeopardy quiz games, trivia, or escape room for a game show-inspired afternoon. If you’re looking for a simple setup, consider a board game afternoon and ask employees to bring a favorite board game from home. Break out into groups and rotate around the room.
Have a creative or adventurous team? Rent a karaoke machine and encourage employees to serenade the group with their favorite tune.
Get to Know You Team Building Activities
It can be a challenge to get to know co-workers, whether you’re working in the same office or virtually from home. Playful games can help people break the ice and open up to tell fun facts and stories about themselves. Try a simple game like three truths and lie, go around the room to tell campfire stories, or have employees bring a small item from home for show and tell. These types of team-building activities are ideal for remote workers who may not know each other well.
Another fun way to get to know your co-workers is a potluck where everyone brings a family dish or their favorite meal to share. Is there a better way to bond than over food?
